What’s next?


There has been a lot of talk about the circus going on outside the fashion shows at fashion week. Suzy Menkes from T Magazine wrote a critical article about the peacocking attention seekers, the instagramming insiders, the photographing bloggers etc. (if you haven’t read Leandra Medine’s rebuttal to the article, read it now).
Since, I’ve never actually witnessed this chaos, I thought it was very interesting to see this documentary feature called “Take My Picture” by Garage magazine. It is nuts how many photographers hang out outside of the fashion shows. Tim Blanks, reporter for Style.com, talks about how everyone these days tries to take part in the circus that is fashion and rightly asks what’s next? I’m curious to see..

Since almost all of my belonging are now in boxes, I have decided to take the rest of the night off to browse and read (I’ve fallen under the spell of Fifty Shades of Grey as well).

While browsing I found this picture that deserved to be mentioned on my blog. If you have the body and coolness to pull this look off, then please. Hanne Gaby Odiele sure does – I’m loving her in this tom boyish look. From the color palette to the cut of her boyfriend jeans, she is spot on with this outfit.

Takes some courage, but combined with a slouchy silhouette, a mute color palette and a cool attitude, I think it looks awesome. Do it, if you have the stomach for it..

Another good example of flashing some abdomens, without looking trashy:
