Yayay! Back from my tryst to nyc, fun fun fun! Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of my own personal fashion but maybe in the next week I’ll recreate some of the looks…! Eitherway, as for what I saw going down, the situation was pretty much the same for mansies as everywhere else, ie: just as dismal, but on a larger scale… Of course, there were some spectacular mansies, (also not pictured, sorry!) but overall there was more rockertown than you can shake a dick at and then there’s the plaid, oh the plaid. About this time last year, I wrote that if you absolutely must wear plaid a few strategies (buttoned up and/or plaid bow tie) can make it ooooooookkkkkaaaaaaayyyyy… but after having literally seen so much urban outfitter/ fluorescent/ ironic plaid that it made me physically fatigued, I’ve come to the conclusion that in no circumstances is plaid acceptable today. Not for the modern mansy, no. I’m sorry to make such a bold and didactic statement, but it after seeing thousands upon thousands of casual, plaid casualties it’s just gone too far.
News Flash: The Boulevardier Declares Plaid… OUT!
But as for my trip, it was oh so lovely! Thank you Yorkie for being so much fun! Btw, Denver! Give me an f’n sesame ball, right now! The food was so so so good, I already miss it!
Here’s some pics from styling Travis at THE Bowery Ballroom… He put this top on on the street, where a passing mansy stopped and asked who the designer was! Me! Yay!
And here’s Israel gogo dancing at the East Village Boys Party! And there’s his beau Johnny… Frisk-ay!
Then we did a Free Boutique installation exploring the potentials of construction fence at Judson Church with the Really Really Free Market (in the same room where Carolee Schneemann did Meat Joy 40 years ago!) Thanks Hannah! And OMG there were a lot of people that came, 600 people in 3 hours! AAAH!
And here’s some pics Kate took of our Sylvia Plath moment at Coney Island… totally apocalyptic, oscillating between heston and juggalo, so epic!
yessss new york!
