Nico - and anyone else that replies to things like this.
Let’s just turn off anonymous questions. I come from the school of thought if you don’t want to stand behind your opinions, questions or comments, you don’t deserve anything in return. That includes a response or platform to be heard.
You don’t have to defend yourself. Not for dressing well or hanging out somewhere with your friends.
I say, fuck stupid questions like this and this type of thinking.
There are more things to be concerned about than what someone ELSE chooses to do with their time.
I know people were giving you props for handling this question with class. But the proper answer should be
“Because I wanted to.”
This past Saturday I returned from a week long birthday trip to Ohio.
Before I left, I made it a goal of mine to work on cleaning up all my projects when I came back to New York.
My most recent blogs were all hosted on tumblr, a place I’ve come to realize is great to finding short form content but one that’s not suited for real interaction or creation.
KEEPS is the hub I want to connect my work, my life and all my digital interactions. To distance myself from the noise.
I still enjoy tumblr, but it seems it’s best suited as a stream for KEEPS.
For those that are interested, please follow me at KEEPS, where I will be writing and photographing my work and life a bit more in depth.
The Internet is swamped with news this morning of Margiela for H&M.
For many, this is exciting news.
For me, it is another sign that a new wave of labels should and will emerge.
I cannot say what is the benefit of working with juggernauts in fast fashion is for a label like Margiela.
But I find the fact that Margiela, known for cutting and hacking recycled vintage clothes and selling it at a premium, is now pitching high end aesthetics at cheaper prices a bit ironic.
I thought how perfect the pairing probably is and how perfect it is for the fashion world. Young designers will see this and react.
“This is not what I want to be.”
