I believe in classic tailoring, strong silhouettes and looking conservative most of the time. I like raf Simons, Heatherette, Tom Ford and all kinds of trashy trendy goodness but I would never wear the garish stuff out in public.
I love contradiction. I’m not a conservative person and I don’t have a conservative job so I like keeping people second guessing by looking like a banker most of time. I don’t want to look like an art school dropout (because I am one).
Dressing like a little kid or an indie hipster idiot is so played out when it’s all over the place every day and everyone starts looking like cartoons of themselves. It’s fun to look like the actual normal every day people because ultimately those are the people who are the most punk rock.. What’s more punk rock than a trader with a cliche coke habit and lots of neurotic tendencies?
If you’re going to dress like you work the archives at the library with your tortoiseshell Wayfarers and cardigans, then do it if you actually work there. I worked there for 5 years and never wore a cardigan. Ever. Mostly raver pants. Now it’s time to look like I’m a Marketing Exec at Audi.
I’m here to bore you to death with my wardrobe, Chictopia! :) Let’s embrace normality and leave the 90’s in the 90’s.
