Natalia Vodionova Bubbleicious by Craig McDean for W Magazine 002

Kinda funny but the older I get, the brighter my outfits get.  Ten years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead in pink.  Only shades and earth tones.  Now I have multiple pink-themed outfits, lilac fun fur and everything.  The techno-snob has definitely been playa-fied over the years.  Outfits below would be my version of a candy raver.  Or a more urban appropriate and tasteful version of my playa wear.

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.

One of my raver BFFs clued me in to Anouk Wipprecht a year or so ago.  I kinda freaked out.  Not only does her stuff look like old school raver clothes, but it also DOES STUFF.  Like paint itself, create smoke clouds, and makes drinks.  In my opinion, in most of  Wipprechts pieces she is successful at creating something unique, conceptual, and technologically challenging while maintaining a distinct look and aesthetic quality.  No small feat.

Radical Self-Reliance: Rick Owens Cowl Vest

PS I made this DIY Rick Owens cowl vest

Today’s DIY courtesy of P.S. I made this.  I’ve gotten a lot of project ideas from them over the years.  Def great for beginner DIYers. This vest was inspired by a Rick Owens vest (I assume the one on the model in the picture).  Gareth Pugh used to work for Rick Owens and Owens later became his mentor/sponsor.  You can see similar structures in GPs Spring/Summer 2012 collection.  You can Please visit the blog for […]

Intro to Techno Snobbery

intro to techno snobbery

Welcome to my third attempt at blogging!  Obviously the first two went absolutely nowhere.  But really, i’m shocked and appalled I didn’t think of this concept earlier.  Those that have known me for a while, know that I fucking love raver clothes.  Let’s just say I was stylistically challenged before I was introduced to the joys of Geek Boutique and FDCO.  With the crash of the late 90s rave wave, most clothing companies producing garments […]
