Ghost Poet

The Topman AAA range has been one of my elusive obsessions for a while now; rare to buy before the exclusive rebellious clothes are sold out, and just as rare to come across such a unique style, with, forget the pun, sheer delight. The AAA is the epitome of grunge lux, where unconventional fabrics are encouraged and androgyny is given an accessible shadow of light. Tops have asymmetric zips, black wax trousers look like intoxicating tar, and blazers have that sequin studded stamp that exudes the well dressed dinner date goth. Meg Matthews has just designed a particularly inspired addition to the range which Topman has adopted, consisting of hand drawn sheer scarves that bleed out a wonderfully twisted graphic print. Showing that scarves can be involved in the company of the sun, I love playing around with the accessory as a lightweight friend to a vest look, or delicately knotted to form a bohemian head piece to tame my curly hair.

  8. The scarf in the hair is a great idea. I will try how it looks on me but I don't think I can wear it. It's better with your curls, I think.
    And I'm searching for exactly the same shoes you wear. The style and the color. I need them for my skinny jeans and the leather coat which has the same color. But I still didn't find. I ordered the Buffalo's but the color was much lighter and the shoe not comfortable. If you have some tips where to order them in size 38, tell me please.

  19. I get so excited upon stopping by your blog. This is a great post, Charles. I love the AAA collection... I would die for some of their pieces.

    P.S. I love what you've done with the cut-off denim.
