See I am guilty of doing the very thing despite the fact that I love Mcqueen’s loud prints and anything else that has photos/vibrant images printed on them. It could be due to my lack of creativity as I find it rather difficult to merge the different streams of fashion (rather like mixing dubstep with Vivaldi). Thank goodness for an epiphany one day and here’s the outcome.

There’s something I’ve noticed about the Rick Owens pack (is there a specific name for them – the people who hangs out at Style Zeitgeist/SuperFuture?), which is that they seem to be afraid of bright colours. Not afraid per se, but one gets the impression that by mixing striking colours in an otherwise monochromatic palette, it tarnishes the purity of the ensemble and thus you are no longer worthy of a membership in the holy clan. Sure Gareth Pugh and Damir Doma are slowly mixing blues and yellows but they are mostly chunks of colours juxtaposed against blacks.
