I'll Be Your Mirror

I'm always attracted to a trend or design when its twisted out of context. When the chains are unlocked, it's amazing to make something popular look disconected but just as emphatic. I've always had a soft spot for something-kinda-punk for example, even though I might not have the personality to match the irresistible aggression. But the manner in which clothes are torn together so carelessly is the mark of unaware art. It's like a patchwork of all the trends are bolted together so bluntly, putting two fingers up to the retail world and finding a way of mirroring it in a more surreal 'Alice in Wonderland On Acid' landscape. Take the editorial below, which scrunches bohemian lumberjacks into urban attitude tie-ups, nestled with drop crotch trousers and teamed with titanic trench coats that showcase exquisite tailoring. I've tried my own interpretation below, taking punk stencils into my own delicate silhouette.
