Your Witchcraft Is All Around Me

As a countryside boy at heart that clashes his way into city lights at night, it's inevitable that the two landscapes juxtapose their way into my wardrobe. Individuality is something that all fashion enthusiasts crave to create, and for me I find this cryptic code less elusive when a pallete of different styles are layered together. Take my weekend attire. 90's style business trousers look like sharp skyscrapers when high waisted on a guy. And including melting mesh tops and colour popping braces creates the vibe of a Devendra Banhart type who daydreams at the office by day, then runs away to the travelling gyspy circus by night. The mix of safari and military is also a trend bending tone I've enjoyed testing out. Fishing cargo nets waterfalling over customised cycling shorts with doc martens is a must in my eyes! A poet that puts this idea into beautiful motion is Patrick Wolf, an artist that at one point looked like a pixie boy from a makebelieve world! Hope everyone had a great weekend, let me know what you've been up to. And finally linking in with the 90's 'business' trousers, I've got a career driven week ahead, interviewing Petar Petrov for a feature in Prim Magazine. Screenshots to come for sure!

  5. Love the braces and the jacket!

    Thanks for the visit again, yeah I know exactly what you mean about the "daughter of someone famous" thing, but she is the one that doesn't seem to make it into the news for anything bad (unless I just haven't seen it!) unlike Daisy Lowe! x
