jacket: Y3, 2011 | boots: Gianni Bravo, 2006 | eyewear: See, 2014 | bag: Jil Sander, 2012
black bag: Ann Demeulmeester, 2002 | brown bag: Souks – Marrakech, 2008
these bags toted wardrobe for several characters as well as jewelry, shoes, props, and other necessities– what a stylish TV crewman i was.
the brown bag i bought from a souk in Marrakech for about 200 US dollars. the black Ann Demeulmeester, by contrast, cost a bit more than that. i’m just sayin.
top: Geld Iaz, 2006 | pants: Geld Iaz, 2000 | shoes: Yves St Laurent, 2010 | bag: Yves St Laurent, 2008
haa, a "street style blogger" stopped me on West 3rd St and asked if she could take my picture. i never feel comfortable with it, but i don’t want to refuse because i feel bad. but their photos never really turn out that well so i think i might have to start saying no thank you from now on. sorry, but this street style blogging thing is like the new food blogging– it’s starting to get kinda totally outta hand, it’s ridiculous.
oh by the way, remember when i mentioned "my geld-iaz black twisted kungfu pants" and how at one point Calvin Klein was even sweating them? well these are from the same collection, except the ones Calvin Klein was sweating were the wider version. i don’t have those anymore though, somebody bought them– yes, practically right off my ass– and i never bothered to replace them. i really liked them though (much better than these), so maybe someday…
top: Geld Iaz, 2004 | pants: Geld Iaz, 2003 | handbag: Fendi, 2007
i’d actually brought and worn these pieces on my trip to the Aeolian Islands but i realized later that maybe, although the top was fine, the pants may have been something of an aesthetic faux pas. it’s been brought to my attention that animal prints (or anything else animal-y, like meat for example) could be considered by some maritime purists as a bit of a murky sea/land creature dichotomy. (i’m not exactly sure how people in the sea fit into this equation, but whatever.)
something for you to keep in mind while you’re packing for your next world cruise aboard the Queen Elizabeth. i’m just sayin.
