Agoraphobic Revival

Whoever said fashion is self centered must have been bullied by their wardrobe at childhood. Because recently I've found a family role-reversing quality with my clothes. Aran knit jumpers no longer have to be the staple and sole 'bread winner' on show. Even with colour popping patchwork, they can easily be encorporated and layered into a jumble-sale-and-frame of shirts, denim, and even thicker knits. My leafy cardigan looks like earthly bubblewrap that has a cloud like canvas, whilst a silky red shirt melts into place over the ecstatic knit thatzings and stings to the layers in glee; like a jumper that's been given a well deserved weekend off from the 9-5 showcase. Wearing all these layers is almost making me agoraphobic, such is the comfort I'm a hype-oholic for indoors.

A designer that revives knit so skilfully is Juyoung, where her new collection 'Resurrection' revamps the order of wear. Jackets, jumpers and tweed overlap for a labyrinth result.

I've also included a picture link below to one of the news articles I helped write and construct at Harper's Bazaar to date. It's been one of the most enrinched and intellectually stimulating environments I've been in, and has driven me even more to take my typewriter to such an office one day. Be sure to head to www.harpersbazaar.co.uk to witness the recently revamped site spectacle.

  7. oh charles, i love the layering. the pop of red shirt really does add something to the otherwise neutral outfit.

    thank-you for your lovely comment, all of them actually. you and constance were two of the first bloggers to comment on my blog, so thank-you!

    how are the charity shops and car boot sales treating you in london? i'd definately recommend battersea car boot sale to you both!

    also, sorry to ramble so much in my comment, but i just had to tell you this. when i was at the fashion department at college, i was sitting in the libary when i say a girl print out a couple of pictures of you for her college sketchbook inspiration. it was somewhat of a surreal experience seeing as i know who you are to some extent!

    love, jazzabelle. xx
