Rewind: Junglist 101

1999.07.16 : WEMF 99 : WHITE SANDS : SAUBLE BEACH F52

Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists. While techno snobs look serious, junglists look tuff. As always post a comment with any additional suggestions.  Always looking for more/better pics.  Thanks to Toronto Jungle for keeping their shit online and in a relatively accessible format. 1. Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

Fast Forward: Lisa Shahno – Squaring the Square 2009

Lisa Shahno pink leather geometric dress

I have no idea how I came upon Russian designer Lisa Shahno, but I’m twitter-pated.  Like with Wipprecht she is able to create futuristic clothing that is aesthetically successful (ie. it looks good), interesting, unique, while maintaining a conceptually complicated theme throughout her collections.  These work as art installations, or you could see them on the streets of Harajuku, on Bjork or Florence Welch (maybe Ginnifer Goodwin if she’s feeling frisky), or at a more theatrical […]

Fast Forward: Bubbleicious

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. Bubbleicous Model – Natalia Vodianova Photographed […]

Rewind: Techno Snob 101

First in a series trying to clarify and describe different raver clothing styles.  Also wanted to clear up where this blog is coming from  This is more or less how I attempted to dress as a young (er) raver.  By and large I NEVER see this style out on the dance floors anymore.  You may have noticed but many of my other posts are inspired by this style.  It is possible to find stuff nowadays […]

Black Milk blue galaxy leggings

Hooray for making shit up as you go along.  Just making days up will-nilly. Alright, the need for a custom blog design is becoming more apparent.  Bare with me for a bit longer.  Meanwhile, the onslaught of SWEARS continues.  Yes, I think I pretty much have every pic of SWEARS currently on the internet, as well as many gleaned from years of ebay and a few too many hours on the Internet Wayback Machine.  It […]
