Look of the month: August

Thursday, 9 August 2007

Yohji Yamamoto SS08

Beautiful clothes are great, aren’t they? But spending a whole day in a tailored suit made of expensive material can become uncomfortable. Wearing something like that, the body will be pretty tense and one has to constantly look after the suit and make sure that it doesn’t get damaged and dirty. Because of that I always change into something more comfortable when I get home so that I want to what I want without having to worry about what I’m wearing.

This month look is a display of comfort and durability. The “I don’t care about what I wearing/I’m a bum”-look was very popular and hyped in 04 and the best example was off course Johnny Deep. Dark and durable clothes are create to wear during a day with lots of activity where you might end up be sitting on grass and perhaps horse playing indoors with ladies.

I live in a Nordic country and rain/snow is a bitch, especially if you’re wearing loafers or sneaker which I why I two years ago invested in a pair of boots which look good, are comfortable and barely needs any maintenance. It is a bit difficult to explain the material but it’s a mixture of leather and rubber, and whenever they are a bit muddy I just wipe them with a wet cloth and I’m good to go. I’ve never bought better shoes then these and they have been the perfect “bad weather” shoes. They can take a lot of beating and yet today I haven’t thrown them away since they are looking pretty good now that they look a bit worn. The pictures are of the boots when they were new and had yet to taste the great asphalt of Sweden.

As for the East Asian art in the background I’m a big fan and still have dreams about watering and cutting a bonsai tree during sun rise. In fact I do have quite a lot of East Asian art at home and did acquire three big drawings(they are actually photo copies) earlier this week. Now I just need to head over to IKEA and buy a set of cheap black frames.

Makes no mistake, I will be watching Rush Hour 3 this weekend.
