Abstract


Watched a wonderful Netflix series “Abstract: The Art of Design”, the first episode featured illustrator Christoph Niemann and ever since he mentioned his love of black and yellow I can’t get that combination out of my head. Here’s how I’d wear it… this Champion Reverse Weave Hoodie (borrowing from the boys again!) with these Isabel Marant Evera Denim PantEverlane E2 Pointed Slide and this fabulous Yayoi Kusama x XLarge x Porter 2Way Helmet Bag (available in store at Opening Ceremony).

 

Henry Hussey x MSGM

Crazy about young British artist Henry Hussey‘s collaboration with MSGM. Select pieces available here.

More and more I am finding the things I want to wear in the menswear section. Vetements has been very influential in that respect, blurring the lines between menswear vs womenswear. Interestingly in “The Mask You Live In”, a documentary I watched recently which examines what it means to be “a man”, neuroscientist Lise Eliot explained that sex is biologically determined but that gender is a social construct which made a lot of sense to me.

Welcome

My family is obsessed with the Moana soundtrack at the moment, it’s really one of the most delightful animated films I have seen in a long time (and I’m not usually a fan). “You’re Welcome” particularly is a favourite and that’s exactly what I have to say for introducing you to this Rachel Comey Welcome Top (also here as well as in beige and red). So many ways to style this seersucker beauty! Photo: The Undone

Paper Bag

Saw a super stylish gal in a pair of paper bag shorts and had I been quick enough I would have nabbed her with a where-did-you-get-those-I-need but alas I was too slow so here are some alternatives. Ecote Coffee Break Paper Bag Shorts or these Open Road Denim Paper Bag Shorts (also in white) which I would pair with this Madewell Westlight Button Down Shirt (on sale!) or this Silence + Noise Cuff Off the Shoulder Top and because you can never (ever) have too many wicker baskets I would carry this J McLaughlin Victoria Circular Wicker Bag .
