Clothes are the objects/products/stuff that is closest to us, on our bodies at almost all times. They become an extension of your identity.
But clothes for me can also be the *things* with most meaning and love attached to them.
/ Why purchase a ‘menswear inspired’ blazer when you can
steal borrow an actual men’s blazer from your boyfriend (or friend / brother / grandfather). In his size and shoulder width and with his scent as an extra bonus. It is like wearing a hug.
/ The dress, I left it at my friend Giuliano’s house months ago and forgot about it. Giuliano happens to be in charge over at Two, where he alters secondhand garments into fantastic new pieces. The dress made its way back to me as a surprise in a new and improved form, with exposed black lock stitches.
/ As for the bag, there is nothing more rewarding than wearing your own designs (except seeing other people wearing your designs). Ideas turning to things is actual magic.
