That’s what I think when buying some (special) clothing items.
There’s something I really like about “hype” places (yes those places someone “normal” would believe it’s the headquarters of a dangerous futuristic sect). The good thing about those places is the fact that you can dress exactly the way you like…
You wander in an unlikely atmosphere where the idea of “wearable” and “non-wearable” suddenly becomes irrelevant. You drink surprising beverages in “conceptual” glasses. (I’m not sure of “conceptual” in english, but in French it is the word to use when you don’t really understand what you have before your eyes). Personally, it makes me delighted. “What’s that thing ? How do you use it ?” (yeah you know, like Ariel in Disney’s Little Mermaid).
The crazier the thing is, the more stoned the designer was when he conceived it, the more I like it ^^
Yes I know, it must be a terrible flaw and maybe one day my flat will look like an exhibition hall. And be likely to cause accidents because you won’t be able to tell where the light switch is, or on what exactly you can or cannot sit. Safety standards ? Bullshit. Seasons, climate ? Never heard of them… Surely they were made by a boring bureaucrat !
It’s funny, this style-anarchy that exists only in some places. Only in some cities. Only in some neighborhoods. In Paris, just near the Bon Marché, you can always see people wearing extraordinary outfits, that leave me in total awe. I always reach to my phone for Instagram but then I think no, I don’t want this lady to yell at me in japanese that she doesn’t want me to take pictures of her stunning geometric coat. Or maybe I’m thinking very wrong, or just the Parisian way… Maybe she would be delighted after all
All this to say that no, I won’t be wearing this snake-print skirt and this patent leather jacket together everyday. But, I like to be able to do it sometimes
