Venus As A Boy

I came across this editorial on www.thefashionisto.com, and it instantly meshed my heart. As I'm sure your aware, I'm an advocate for men who don't staple and stick to stereotypical and dated dealings of masculinity. And this shoot is a poetic punk tribute to rulebreaking that is quickly becoming standard fashion curiculum. The mesh tops are provocative and teasing but with an air of armor strength. Layered with thick knot scarves or industrial leather jackets only adds to this metallic edge. And I love the electric lizard and tartan trousers; showing that acid trip colours can stand out for a man while also have a tamed accessibility into everday urban wear, particularly when teamed with casual vests and jackets. So with this colour spark and mesh-in-mind today, I wore a twin layered spiderweb top that threads grey and black mesh together, along with the blood red doc martens and dirty cream shorts that have a potato sack texture to them.
