NO ATTACK

For those of you who follow me on twitter, you may know a few more things about my fashion sense than those who don’t. But don’t fret, I’ll catch you up with the important tweets that are applicable to this line I just found.

I think you get the picture.

Somehow, by the grace of the gods, I encountered this brand on my feed and have fallen in love with it. I’ve contacted the brand and they gave me these photos to share with all of you! Revel in their glory.

 

There is plenty more where that came from, just saying. Check out their site linked below. 😀 This line is called “Stargate” and I can see why! It’s out of this world with inspiration.

In my opinion, these designs are a playful, yet serious questioning of what male fashion is and could be. Why can’t a man care enough about fashion to push the boundaries? There is a playful touch of subtlety where you can’t necessarily place your finger on how the clothes are different from those of most clothing lines, but you can feel that they surely are. No Attack’s Stargate is edgy enough to be different, yet subtle enough to blend in; giving it a tasteful edge.

I can play with their motto “Real men fear no attack” by taking it one of two ways. One way being from the perspective of dressing outside of the norms of what a “normal” man wears. Others are going to comment, smirk, or talk about it, but that man shouldn’t fear those attacks.   Another way I can take it is from the point of view of the “ordinary” man; being that a man who sees another man dress outside of the social norms of men’s fashion shouldn’t feel threatened or attacked by this man’s display of edgy style. The two can coincide in today’s society regardless.

While the line is based out of Poland, they ship worldwide. I know I’m on board. Take me to your leader.

Taste Test

Consider this a taste test of what’s to come from my fashion side, as of now.  As with anybody else, I am always changing, growing, and learning in my style and tastes.  My current taste in fashion ranges from street (and this) to formal and any imaginable mix in-between.  Now seems to be a very diverse and fun time for fashion!

With a wide range of color choices between the two, bright contrasting colors or dark monochromatism, I typically like to spark up a monochromatic outfit with either edgy pieces or a splash of color.   Mixing things that aren’t usually grouped together in a cohesive image are other ways I express my multifaceted self.  Just because someone thinks a Clark Bushacre 2 boot is “hipster” doesn’t mean it can’t also be accessorized with a hip/sporty flat bill.  Never let labels limit.  Fashion should be fun!  To quote my friend Emily Knezz, “I think fashion should know no rules; colors, patterns, whatever, it don’t matter. If you like it, wear it. When you don’t care about the rules, there’s a lot more options, and it’s a lot more fun.”  I could not agree more.

Look at Mademoiselle Yulia rocking heels, patterned leggings, an oversized tee, a varsity jacket, bandana, and flat bill.  If we broke this down into each piece representing a certain style we would have at least three different styles that some wouldn’t dream of mixing together.  Heels are a woman’s best friend as a classy, sexy, and elegant style would suggest.  Bring in the varsity jacket (prep/jock), the hat & bandana combo (street/urban), & leggings (chic) and we’ve got some eye candy of a fashion cocktail.

That all being said, I think this gives a very generalized (and small) piece of what is to come from my fashion posts.  So stick around and get ready to sip some style sangria (or soda!) with me!
