Cable3

lately all i've been wanting to wear is cable-knit sweaters. big, giant, oversized cable-knit sweaters. but, me being me, i've been trying to take the vanilla WASP kennebunkport heritage blogger retarded context away from them, so i've been trying to wear them overlyslouchy or with some other kind of edge. basically, i've been trying to wear them WAY GAYER. so...

look, i know how to read, OK?

so i've been OBSESSING over this book "6+ Antwerp Fashion" on the antwerp 6 that served as a kind of catalog for an exhibit in tokyo. having caught a glimpse of it here and here, i was ready to up and buy the shit out of it, but i could only find it for $700 and up. so i went to the main branch of the library (the one with the lions!) and checked it out, partly to see if that would be sufficient to sate my desperate shoplust to buy it as an early birthday present to myself and partly to see if it was so good that i had to buy it as an early birthday present to myself.

the book was basically PERFECT for someone who LOVES time capsules and archives. tons of newspaper and magazine clippings from the time when the antwerp 6 and their belgian contemporaries were coming out. i spent HOURS reading it. seriously.

anyways, for both of our benefits, i took a shit ton of pictures of the book and here are some of them:

where the fuck is magik?!

ok, i'm pretty STUPIDLY excited by this vintage new mutants t-shirt i won on ebay for a ridiculous amount of money.

the only way i can justify the amount of money i spent on this shirt is: (1) i fucking LOVE the new mutants. like to an incredibly stupid degree, (2) i've NEVER seen a new mutants t-shirt in all my years of searching on ebay/the internet, so it must be pretty rare, right? right?

SO SO SO PSYCHED!! also, some harry nilsson i've been playing over and over and over again since i saw this documentary on him for your friday:

ruffo club

was reminded how good ruffo research was from this la collectionneuse find. just as a primer, ruffo research was basically a design laboratory arm of an italian (italian?) leather label wherein they gave the creative reigns to up-and-coming designers with hard to spell names including: raf simons, veronique branquinho, sophia kokasaoiseralkseaki, riccardo tisci, and haider ackermann.

i'm having a hard time tracking down any pictures of the raf collection, but the haider stuff from spring 2003 is ON POINT:


also, look at this ADORABLE picture of raf simons when he was just a BABY from 1999 Dutch:

D'AWWWWWWWWWW.

la cabina (1972)

i'm just going to put this weird 35 minute spanish surrealist movie (i won't give away anything) right here for you to watch in your due time. it's great and i don't have much more to say about it, except that, though i know you all (and i) have the attention span of approximately 30 seconds, you should watch it.

everything i talk about i talk about with you

two things:

(1) i got a pair of solid gold sunglasses at the thrift store and i'm so so so psyched on them.

doubletime

the lenses are gold, the frames are gold, and they give me the feeling of the mykita x bernhard willhelm sunglasses but without the cheeseball vomitous connotations of being featured in a sex and the city sequel. the shape is classic and perfect.

also, i have great clavicles.

(2) this weekend i'm going to see GUIDED BY FUCKIN' VOICES so in celebration here are a bunch of fantastic gbv/bob pollard songs.

as we go up, we go down


game of pricks


echos myron


unleashed! the large-hearted boy


people are leaving


so so so psyched!! it's my teenboy dream come true!!
