Clothing IS Political

Look around you, there has never been a perfect time to highlight how politically charged the clothes we wear are. This post is in reaction to, perhaps also an affirmation of the following article The Power of the Hoodie. Frockwriter summed up the hoodie as the dress code of disenfranchised Western youth and I couldn’t agree with her more. Fashion takes centre stage as images from the London riots are livestreamed all across the world and the hoodie becomes the most feared item of clothing, superseding the burqa – for the moment anyway. It’s quite awakening that fashion and its impact doesn’t only exist in its vacuum of fashion weeks, magazines and the bloggersphere but actually in real life too. The above image was taken a year ago, part of a collection to inspire later art projects and I found it today out of all the days to stumble upon it again. The Universe is trying to tell us something.

A Prada Afternoon

Here I am again resorting to the good ol’ outfit post. I know I’ve been quiet and it’s been quite a habit. Yes I know – to be a full-on blogger you need to have content (fresh) everyday or try to any way. But what’s to say that I’m still enchanted by this notion of narcissism, product placement and constant sycophancy. And I’m not saying that every single “fashion blogger” (whatever that is) out there is guilty of such. I’m no clean slate and am guilty of all three sins but to tell you the truth I’m over it. I’d rather make art then chase fame.

P.S Yes I am trying to show off that I own Prada because that justifies my place in this ‘world’.
