I won this pair of shorts on eBay. It's taken my mind to places. I can imagine myself wearing nothing but them (commando, u kno) laying by a pond with a tobacco pipe casually hanging off the edge of my mouth, friends chatting around me, maybe passing a bottle of wine around. When the time is ripe, I will leave them crumpled next to the empty bottle of wine to swim around in the pond a little bit, look at sun as it wanes into nothingness.

The perfect early summer day.

BUT ITS STILL FUCKING WINTER.

I wrote this piece for Hyphen Magazine, an Asian American culture/politics blog.

Those of you who know me will have heard my line of reasoning before.

This is one of those moments I mentioned when I say: "I'm going to be wearing this every single day".

I am such a fashion freak that my mind always used to find creative ideas of fashion. Last week I got louis vuitton dresses and matching sandals which are looking fabulous. I loved the color combination.

FYI for anyone committing to wearing a rayon shirt every day: Unless you live in a dry cleaners you are either going to be very smelly or have a water damaged and crumpled shirt.

I was in nyc last weekend and hung out with @teck. We were heading over to the Thom Browne store in tribeca and stopped in at a starbucks to use the bathroom. As we're waiting a barista comes up to us and starts chatting us up about what we're wearing. The barista tells us that Thom Browne store is closed on Sundays, so we didn't go.

Takeaways:

1. Neither of us have been to the Thom Browne store yet.

2. In NYC, even the baristas at starbucks are more fashionable than 99% of the people I know in real life.

3. 5 minutes earlier we were talking about how we don't know how non-rich people afford this shit. We do ok but neither of us feel particularly rich. Starbucks guy then tells us about all the Thom pieces he owns.

Been thinking about the dissonance between the way we present how we dress on the internet vs real life, specifically within the context of waywt. We obsess over tiny details, cohesiveness, how these shoes match, how pants break, etc of one outfit but how does it actually translate into how we wear our clothes daily. I have some clothes where I really only have one or two outfits where it really works, but in day to day life I'll just slap it on without a ton of thought (or force a meh fit for the sake of variety) and I wouldn't want to post those fits online. But that's really who I am. WAYWT posts that show what one wore over an entire week or even month feel a lot less phony to me in that respect. Of course posting to show off a good fit is fine and dandy but it's us showing off our styling skills more than our style.

I guess this stems from a couple weeks ago when I wore a cool uc jacket with really ugly (and not even cool ugly, just ugly) gym clothes. There are those purists on the internet who will say, "oh you're not doing that piece justice" when you where something internet cool with basics. Good thing they didn't get a load of me that day.

Thinking about starting college 4 years later after all my peers- my community college offers a 5 semester course in fashion design. I'm sure I'd learn a lot, I'm also pretty sure that no one would be interested in hiring someone with a degree from a community college. idk. I just want to be able to say I study fashion academically ;)

I think about this a lot too, actually. I think after realizing that no one cares about you or how you look nearly as much as yourself, you realize that you can do those things for yourself because you enjoy it. "Dress for yourself" in simple terms, but some people are just detail oriented.

Whilst there has been overlap over the years, particularly when the former owned the latter in the early 00s, you're being daft if you can't see the differences. Both were concerned - and still are in prada's case (i'm not sure jil sander has any real brand direction left at this point but that's for another time) - with the empowerment of women through luxury fashion: Miuccia was famously a member of the communist party and involved in women's rights activism and Jil basically invented businesslesbian chic. but they approached this empowerment completely differently. prada has always had an eye for the outrageous and the ornamental and a healthy dose of italian bad taste - see her recent obsessions with fur and and jewels, her ongoing love for the history of european and 20th century american bourgeois dress. flapper dresses, prussian imperial clothing, luxury favela wear... she's done it all and she did it first. her collections are also always highly conceptual, even if the concept is esoteric and difficult to parse by the time it makes it to the runway. All this while building a business empire that makes jil sander look small-fry in comparison. Jil Sander on the other hand is much more focussed, reductionist. it's probably easier to say what 90s jil sander wasn't. never as sexy as calvin klein, never as avant garde or as futurist as helmut lang, nor looking to the past as much as prada. relentlessly modern (which is why the stuff from the nineties looks really dated: everyone buy it now for that 90s revivalist cool). This makes the way raf simons (or his team) expanded the design language of jil sander all the more impressive imo - a lot of what is associated with the brand now is his (their) doing, and, if anything, has left the brand ideologically closer to Celine than Prada.

I tend to dress the same regardless. My WAYWT posts tend to be more indicative of when I'm feeling more interesting (i.e. more than grey pants/black boots/black tee/ black jacket). It's one of the reasons I have very few summer WAYWT outfits. If I get a new item I like, I'll probably find an excuse to WAYWT it though.

Also by the "dark fashion" dudes too because Boris Bidjan Saberi is doing a collab with Reebok.

Reeboks are on trend? I've been eyeing http://www.finishline.com/store/catalog/product.jsp?productId=prod692385 because the only shoes I can picture myself wearing this summer are white.

hung out with some friends of a friend, many of whom work in fashion in some way. it was relieving to know that everyone is insecure and generally sick of the vacuous, vitriolic posturing of most mens fashion "journalism".

also, legit had a dream that all of the MA-1s in the world were sold out and i couldn't get one :(

What are some examples of quality fashion journalism? I really like Put This On (if that counts as journalism), but I can't find much else that isn't obviously advertising/useless (Complex/Four Pins comes to mind).
