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.

See?  I’m not fucking crazy.  Though in all honesty the hiking boot truck model is probably the ugliest pair of shoes made by SWEAR Alternative. The following text and photos courtesy of Solestruck Blog. “A quick trek to Google-Image search (my go-to for stalking), let’s you know that the obsession with the 90’s inspired and Portugal based Swear Alternative is alive and well. What was once a powerhouse brand among club kids, techno heads, ravers and […]

PS I made this DIY Rick Owens cowl vest

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 […]

[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.]     […]

Fast Forward: Nike

Fast Forward Fridays: Nike

Athletic wear used to be pretty de rigeur in the party scene for chicks.  Have to say it was pretty great to go to parties where dressing like a tomboy was considered dead sexy.  And clothes designed for workouts does help with sustaining 5+ hours of dancing.  If I had oodles of money I would have a pair of adidas shell toes and matching track jacket in every colour possible.  Never really was into Nike, […]

Well this was quite the year in terms of personal development.  Still a ways to go, particularly professionally and financially, but I’m looking forward to the new year  as I’ve worked very very hard to build a stable foundation for myself.  Off to a jungle party tonight, then likely to the CoZo and a proper catch up with my old crew.  Believe it or not, in oh 14 years of partying, mostly in the GTA, […]

SWEAR Street Mix 07 e

SHOE PORN.  More to come  I think I literally pulled every picture of SWEARS off the internet.  EVERY PICTURE.  The Street Mixes personally aren’t my favourite style of SWEARS but they were immensely popular.  I think the Camo SMs are the best of the bunch.
