Random Rhetorical Hypebeast Fashion Thoughts

Postby Emilefauff » Sat Oct 19, 2019 6:10 pm

BBS has some hard to handle double zippers as well. When a girl sitting on a couch in a bar wanted to help me with the zipper on my coat all the people behind me were laughing because it looked like a blowjob.

Some random thoughts here:

Silent should be more expensive than the mainline.

Starting to like MA.

And a fast fashion thought: Dont women in cheap high heels ask for the attention of just women in cheap high heels and men who like women in cheap high heels? Sorry, I came too close to a newly opened shopping center in my town...

i think it's kind of funny that the only acceptable level of flexing while wearing SI is without the badge even though it's extremely obvious that you removed the badge

this question has got me strung up because my f/w uniform of late has been corduroy pants, a sweater, a nylon rain jacket, and clarks desert boots. slim and inoffensive. answering INNIT's question: you certainly wouldn't be wrong to suggest that i'm assuming a normcore energy, a certain casual aesthetic, a certain just look-past-this. but I would personally say that this outfit I'm describing is not similar to the state of new york city normcore, in fact I think the business casual energy I try to cultivate is a response to the local normcore.

consider what I am about to say in this way: what musician do you think is closest to your personal conception of normcore? is it tame impala? billy joel? john fahey?

the normcore creative universe is so broad right now that I think normcore has taken on a nebulous body of associations, for instance i think you could responsibly assert that the fila disruptor is a response to normcore pressures. in the same way that george clanton stands in a beige room and wears a plain brown tee shirt for his 2015 album cover, his 2018 album cover shows a chunky sneaker screaming right at you!! his upper body is clad in a club ready white jumper and baggy powder blue trousers. it's an uncanny, unpredictable result that the chunky sneaker of 18/19 and the common projects trend of 15/16 could be aesthetic cousins, and yet here we are?

has anyone here hypothesized recently on the form and meaning of normcore? I'm having difficulty making sense of it

Fashion has always come from and onto a person. Fashion, like drama, doesn’t get a chance at internal logic.

only reason im going to pipe up here is because popcorn wrote a decently long effort post that u dismissed with a smarmy one liner. which is annoying

if you read the "normcore discussion" you'd know that it began with me being uncomfortable with someone describing the way that i dress as "normcore" because obviously its an old trend that is no longer cool. so dont worry everyone is just as attuned as you; we know that normcore is obviously NOT cool anymore, we're all on the same level of internet fashion knowledge, it's all good.

that said, i'd say that the same instincts that inspire normcore also might inspire something like, say, dressing like what my 18 yearold self in 2011 might describe as "smart office wear" (slim black jeans, a button up). trends dont just evaporate one after the other, they imbricate over top one another. ok that's all

Normcore, like cyberpunk, is difficult to theorise now that It's suffused reality.

There’s a store in a cellar in Shibuya called “archive store” and it sells old helmut Lang and raf Simons etc.

Did supreme start the recent popularity of jpg or was it those archive Instagram accounts? Did those accounts start posting jpg because it was cheap to buy on eBay?

I think you can see the whole archive situation as an exercise in commodity manipulation.

And ASAP Rocky, he was probably the source of the widespread popularity of “archive” clothing.

Re: Sam’s rep comment, Yes they had some amazing margiela items that I had never seen in person such as the down jacket coat and glove vest. Worth visiting for that alone.

Some things truly are archive worthy. But then other specific items of clothing are just transparently about pushing up the value. I remember some specific undercover jacket (I think the one that says zamizang) suddenly being a very expensive archive piece. Or the junya watanabe poem shirts and jeans.

Honestly anything with text printed on it from the 90s will probably become “archival” seeing a bunch of hysteric glamour pop up recently. Maybe that 2047691042 brand.

It's very amusing/depressing to see items from max 4 years ago pop up on the archive instagrams and to be told they are archival. Total joke.

The year is 2013, You live between sufu and /r/malefashion and it’s December. You wake up every morning to turn on laptop at 7am. The sales have started. You already know what you're looking for on Mr P and that’s snagging your first set of common projects achillies lows. the IRC is already a buzz of latest cops. Life is good.
