Last night I was at a bar and met a man.
He told me he worked in "mergers and acquisitions" (all New Yorkers work in fashion or finance)
"YES" I SAID, "MURDERS AND EXECUTIONS!" (LOVES IT!) ONE MORE THING OFF MY HUGE TO DO LIST OF NEW YORK ACCOMPLISHED
genuine American Psycho moment
Sarah G took me to a store called UNIQLO- JIL SANDER just finished a capsule collection for them.....IT IS INCRED MAN. AND CHEAP!
luxury will be simplicity
purity in design, beauty and comfort for all
quality for the people
basics are the common language
the future is here
The store is gigantic- and set out beautifully over 3 levels of high ceilings and pristine white walls and floors. Everything is basic, cheap and high quality- its like American apparel's god and heaven- its the ultimate store for style because it is not branded, not highly designed, and therefore all the onus is on you! Freedom of expression is a rare thing in fashion I think the more and more I work on it, people are so driven by branding and 'looks' and trends that they forget that each item that they put on can be layered to create an individual--
SPEAKING OF FUTURE- CHECK OUT ALEXANDER WANG*STAR'S TAKE ON FUTURE SPORTSWEAR. woah
and my favourite Alexander- Mr McQueen (his latest campaign)
and Balenciaga----that guy from uni who got tricked into buying 10 meter long zips should have kept them and done this- zips from neck to cuff along sleeve- impractical and technically a method of constriction- BUT OH SO DIVINE- DELIME
and Alber oh you are so so incred
So I just got home from a Japanese restaurant where I drank Plum wine & ate Ramen with eggs & pork & spoons as big as bowls! When I was in the bathroom I got really freaked out because I heard this big rumbling noise and felt the ground shake and the walls move and thought that maybe New York had been blown up, and ended up going back to the table and asking the boys what it was....
THE SUBWAY TRAINS WERE BEHIND THE WALL. WTF
(in a bathtub that was for sale on the street on the way home)
wtf is this life?
this is gold
this is a gold life we're living
even if its all matching and parallel
