Yeah so there’s no way I can knit the stuff I posted yesterday.  However the big chunkiness reminded me of one of my favourite designers of knitting patterns, Wenlan Chia.  Perfect for a winter rave on top of a ski hill.  I’ve made a couple of her pieces and they turned out well.  Eventually I’ll actually get my act together and photograph all my stuff.  I’m just camera shy.  I wish I could afford her […]

Eventually i’ll get around to posting some of my own DIYs, but for now I’m relying on the generosity of others. If you haven’t figured out already, i’m obsessed with crazy collars, cowls, and neck things, the weirder the better.  I attribute this to 1) my techno-snob aesthetic and 2) growing up in Canada.  In an upcoming post i’ll spell out the hallmarks of the techno-snob style a bit more for the non-southern Ontario ravers.

Confession: I used to hate fun fur.  Haaaaaaaaaate it.  Sometime at BM 2008 I put on someones fur coat and ate my words HARD.  Yes, it’s gawdy, but it feel so fucking awesome after a night of partying.  And doubles as a blanket.  Fashion, good taste, age-appropriateness, and personal grooming standards are not and should not be socially expected at Burning Man (NOT the case at your local EDM massive). Or at least they operate […]

Fast Forward: Gareth Pugh AW 2008

[Ed. note – i’m sick so not much commentary this week.  Sorry ] “Sometime during the genesis of this collection, the Wizard of Oz bumped into Predator” (style.com) Holy shit Style.com, I can’t think of a more appropriate stylistic description.  Well played. [Another ed. note.  Not so well played style.com, you have the worst photos of this collection online.  You might as well have your editor just write prose than use this photographer.]     […]
