STYLE & FASHION || TIBI TIBI TIBI CAN'T YOU SEE... [11]

...sometimes your collections just hypnotize me. 


TIBI PRE-FALL RTW 14 collection is nothing short of amazing. The headgear that have quickly become an ode to Pharrell, the boxy oversized silhouettes that oddly work to create a clean construction, TIBI - hats off. 



I think the most endearing thing about this collection, is the dramatic way in which menswear has completely been engrossed in the way designers like Amy Slimovic, are now styling for women. For a androginistic lover of all things oversized like me, this is remarkable news. Even a middy aline skirt, is accompanied by a slightly oversized jumper, brogues / oxfords and a hat.. 




Here we see the lines extremely blurred as this could easily also be seen on a male model. I admire Tibi for expressing the ways in which fashion has no gender bounds. Fashion doesn't really need to always exist in a male and female version of things. 



The cut-out brings out the careful construction of this simple pull-over. Again, conventional ideas of masculine fashion, meets a more feminine one. Tibi isn't really trying to make womenswear into menswear, but rather complicating in so we shift away from thinking in gender binaries, or at least, that's what I'd hope. Bravo.

TIBI + FIT + YUNA YANG + CLYDEEE | NYFW F17

I had the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week recently. If you know me or this blog, it's been a very long time coming. Ok, maybe like three years but still it was a plesant surprise to receive my first real invite to a NYFW show, this side of the continent***. I felt truly special, as NYFW  seems to set out to make one feel, with the stark scent of exclusivity. But I also knew almost immediately, I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by. It was practically divine. On the very same day I looked up the dates for this past season's show, was the very same day I ranted about the state of NYFW, and the very same day Yuna Yang sent me an invite. Something much larger than I was at work, so I took heed and followed through with the prompting (Thank you sweet baby Jesus). Yuna Yang

I am listening to “All Night” and I am in tears. I am crying from the inside-out. There is no flood, just pain (and healing *rolling eye emoji).



FORurinforMATION.

Listen.
And yes that word counts as a B reference so let's just start there.
