Fashion is supposed to be fun, remember? Thank God that there are still people around who like to mix it up and play around with fashion. There was life before head to toe black. I’m wiith you, Sartorialist. Thank you for your eye for fresh individality!
i love them, i like the very balanced mix-n-match style. the downtown look with a worldly viewpoint!
question to readers:
at what age does a man have to “surrender” his will to be a creative dresser, and to adopt a more “established” way of dressing? i suppose i will also ask this question of the female readers too. is there a magic age when you have to sartorially “grow up”?
Can’t agree that America invented indie! Though where it came from doesn’t matter much as I’d say that this is a good example of bohemian dress, not indie, whatever that is. Indie tends to mean drab intense and morose people with guitars to me – this lot have far more in common, as someone else says below, with Japanese influences..
Na-ah Thurston, can’t say that they did. But I agree with anonymous that it really doesn’t matter from where it came in this case. But they certainly look the definition of indie to me. Except they are not accompanied by guitars.
I think you should always try to evolve your style as you live your life and at some point start to zero in on classic pieces that suit you and build a wardrobe around them adding new things as you go. A good look in the mirror will tell you when things start to look too “young”, but who wants to wear now what they wore when they were twenty anyway? A well developed sense of style is timeless.
cute cute cute. i esp. love the girl’s outfit. the way she’s standing with her hands in her coatpockets too – tho i could do without the pigeon-toed stance which i am sick of seeing every ingenue celeb take.
