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.

Bill Cunningham New York

This past weekend I went into a fashion film craze. I scoured Netflix for more fashion and more films, and in my search wound up stumbling upon Bill Cunningham New York (link to IMDb). Having very little knowledge of who this man is, and what he does, I immediately fell in love with his story, his passion, and his drive. Bill works for the New York Times and publishes articles of his photos of fashion on the streets of New York. He’s ballsy too, running backwards into on coming traffic just to get the right shot; let alone walking the streets of a city with a camera pointed at seemingly unexpected strangers. He does what he wants with his vision and just goes for it. Guts. I would highly recommend this film; and have done so to a friend I though would enjoy this due to his love of photography (you can follow him here!). 

 

Lately I’ve been so inspired, I hope you can feel some of that and spread it! 😀

Love,

T-SHIRT LINE LAUNCH!

I’m so excited to announce my first season of shirts! For this season, I went with a mythology theme, as I have always loved ancient mythology (specifically Egyptian & Greek)! The quality of the printing here is astounding, and I can’t get over it.

Let’s grow together and create more! ❤

Love,

PS – I should add that you can customize your shirts as well by picking different colors! Have fun and enjoy! ❤

T-Shirt Line Launch!

I’m very excited to announce that I will be launching a T-Shirt line in March 2014! If you’ve read my post on customized clothing you know I have a desire to create fashion and not just appreciate it!

Some of these designs have been influenced by my previous sketches and have been modified for T-Shirt street wear! Street fashion has been my current obsession as it is both flashy and comfortable.

I’ve designed these with my friends in mind and to make the wearer feel special. Because when you feel special, those around you feel special. Spread the joy and love!

I’m also doing a GIVEAWAY for the launch! 😀

More designs can be found HERE.

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!
