Shopping Cart : Skater Girl

There is something so cool about a skater girls style…

Here’s a few things I think would be perfect!


By admin

Short Cuts

I was walking down the street with Elisa on Saturday night, and we noticed that the girls seemed to be really, reeeeally bare – like hardly wearing anything at all.

They all had on super tight, super short skirts or shorts – more like panties, really, and tops which were basically bras, and they all seemed terribly excited.

I don’t have to remind you that it was below 20°F: I think we’ve already established on this blog that the city of New York has returned to the ice age.

Anyway, we were freezing, even with our coats on. We couldn’t believe our eyes.

Obviously, for a second there, I wondered if we had turned into disapproving grandmas, to which Elisa replied: “Grandma yourself!”

The more we walked, the colder we got, and the flock of half-naked girls just kept on coming.

So we went on theorizing:
“Noooo, we’re just shocked because it’s cold out. In the summer, everyone in New York is dressed like that and no one gives it a second thought!!!”
“Yeah, it’s true – I’ve noticed the shorts in New York are really really short.”*

That’s when we arrived at Webster Hall and realized that was the final destination of all the skin-tight shorts. (I mean, not final FINAL destination, of course – the butts accompanying them would have to get back home one day, right?)(I hope?)

“Pfffff, that’s the Miley Cyrus influence – this is wrong”* I said, with a disapproving look (but not a disapproving grandma look – just disapproving!!!)

The crowd was there to see a group of DJs I hadn’t heard of*, the Bassjackers (is it just me or do I not know anything anymore*?) (have you heard of them?) – and everything would have been fine in the world of butt showing, except that as soon as I saw the crowd, this is what I noticed: the girls were half-naked, but the guys were all dressed totally normally.

“I mean, in the 70s, clothes were super tight*, but it was the same for guys. I have photos of my dad in bell bottom jeans to prove it!”

Honestly, I’ve always been pretty relaxed about half-nakedness. A little less so when it comes to vulgarity, but I guess vulgarity is a matter of perspective.

Side note: Don’t Fear the Nipple

Did you see what happened to Anja Rubik when she published a photo of herself wearing a sheer top (Not vulgar – beautiful, very sexy – but not vulgar) and Instagram literally shut down her page? I thought that was pretty unbelievable.


It’s fashion, it’s artistic!!! Some people might have said.
Yes, but breasts are breasts, it’s nudity – zero tolerance or it’s all doors opened to pornography!!! The People of Instagram might have responded (I don’t think they responded at all, actually. She just had to open another account), completely freaked out by the downward spiral into porno on Tumblr.

As for Anja, she opened a new account and made “Don’t Fear the Nipple” t-shirts, and I thought that was cool. Even if I don’t necessarily want to free my nipple right this minute.

Honestly, all of this is difficult – there aren’t really any clear lines.

That night in front of Webster Hall, the thing that bothered me was of course the trashiness of it all, but also the fact that only the girls were half-naked – that they thought to be fun and cool as a young girl, they had to show as much skin as possible, look as drunk / sexy / ready for anything as possible.

I don’t know what guys go through as teenagers (I’m sure they have other difficult things to deal with) but anyway, I’m sure they don’t have the same pressure to exhibit themselves and to oversexualize their bodies. Good for them.

Now, what’s the dynamic between them and the crazy, half-naked girls?
No idea. But I don’t think boys “ask” girls to dress like that or that it’s a problem of inequality between boys and girls at all.
I just think that girls imagine that’s what they have to do to be cool and rebellious.

And frankly, it’s easy to judge – I had some big moments of stupidity when I was about 20. It wasn’t always glorious, but I learned from it.

So, all of this is just to say – I’m not really sure what to think. Do you think next time I should tell them to go put some clothes on* or should we just let kids be kids…?

Sue

I spotted Sue on the street the other day and really liked her look.

But also, I really loved her bag. Isn’t it cool? I asked her how it came about…

“I actually started putting patches on my bag after seeing a cool patched vest on St Mark’s. It was too expensive for me to buy, so I thought, ‘What do I already have that I can put patches on?’ My bag, which I bought for myself for high school graduation, instantly came to mind. I put my name on the front in varsity letters and added a few other small patches and pins that I liked to start. After that, people started giving me patches for my bag, and I started picking them up everywhere I went. Each one is special and reminds me of a place, person, or memory I loved.

It gets a lot of attention, both positive and negative, but neither matters to me. With every patch it becomes more mine. Hence its (perfect) nickname: the Souis Vuitton.” - Sue

Pour Bali!

Here are two or three things I’m bringing to Bali.

Simple things that I’ve had for years and others that have recently found their way into my rotation, like my summer pajamas by Sea that I just love, this Carioca bathing suit (a Corsican brand that I told you about here), neither of which are too pricey and can go with anything…

Some yoga outfits, a few t-shirts, my Rondinis that have had quite a few wearings (I’ve worn them every summer since I bought them, oh and their color has changed*!), a super light white linen dress, some shorts I can romp around in on my bike…

So, maybe I’ll end up adding a few more things (I always toss in an extra 500 pounds of “just in case” stuff at the last second) – but these are my essentials!!!

————-

*An entire bottle of oil broke in my bag last time and the weird part is… my Rondinis literally absorbed all of it. Check it out:
1/ They totally changed color.
2/ They protected the rest of my bag, a save I’ll never forget.
3/ They smell like Monoi from a mile away!

You Voted!

So on Friday, you voted… Tomboy !!!
Here are a few notes on the debate, thank you for participating, it was really nice (and interesting) to read :)

#1 – Some of you found that the high waisted version and the cheek-peep (I made up that one) was vulgar. Some others found it anti-hygienic.
I think that, as a few of you said, this way to wear the shorts is fresh and sexy – everybody was doing it in the 70′s, it’s just cute!
The only thing is to wear it with flats…
About hygiene, I agree that I wouldn’t feel great wearing them in NYC with the taxis and stuff… But on holiday, oh yeah !!!

#2 – I’d wear the tomboy, as you know me, but I actually really love it both ways.

#3 – Some of you found that the model was too skinny on the left side (wearing the tomboy shorts)… But it’s the same model, the same pants, and not retouched! It’s only that worn without a belt, the shorts fall very low (almost to the knees), a place where leg gets skinnier… It shows how different the perception is (wearing it the tomboy way definitely makes you look skinnier), which I find super interesting.

There you go darlings!!! Big kiss!

This Or That

The other day on a shooting, we played with the model’s jean shorts. They’re the same in both pictures.
On the left, very low on her waist for a tomboy look, and on the right, with a belt, super high and extra sexy.

What’s your favorite way ?

Resort Trends… Bermuda Shorts

The Trend: Bermuda Shorts

How I would wear it: With a slouchy sweater? I love the low waist / high waist feel of the Reed Krakoff one in the center though. AND with heels. You have to have the longest legs in the universe to be able to pull off that look with flats, don’t you think?

How would you wear it? Would you dare with flats like in some of the pictures?

Best Looks: From left to right, Tibi, Chloé, Reed Krakoff, Christopher Kane and Phillip Lim.

On the Street……Garance Casual Spring, Southampton

I love Garance’s weekend style. She begged me not to shoot her yesterday in Montauk, but she looked soooo cute in her new Céline sandals and vintage hand-printed cargo shorts.

 

What you can’t see very well is the blue batik print belt that she stole from the robe I bought at The Crow’s Nest Inn.

Spring Wishlist……Something Missoni

I thought the Missoni Spring 2013 collection was one of the strongest of the season.

 

I loved the sneakers in the show and the very subtly layered cargo shorts.

 

However, I think if I was going to buy one item from this collection, it would have to be one of their signature knits – maybe the polo above left but in the color story of the knit above right.  But then again, those sneakers are very cool.

The Spring Coat

As some of you have noticed in my videos, I’m crazy about coats. I think I like them even more than bags and shoes. Plus they kind of have a skinnying effect so if your boyfriend jeans are starting to fit you or if you’re not up to date on your Jillian Michaels, get out a nice coat and everything is forgiven. Well don’t go as far as wearing it in bed, but…

Now the thing is that the temperature is going up (it was so hot in New York yesterday!) and I feel kind of naked without my coats on.
But the other thing is that the springtime trend is light coats, oh yeah!

(What? Were all the designers inspired by my videos or something?)(Bahahaha)

So here I am jumping head first into this spring trend.

I totally fell in love with Keisha’s jacket here, a most sublime Zara (So cool that I believe they are out of stock) but anyway, it would be a little too long for me. And here are some others that I’m just dying for….

Yeah, don’t get your hopes up though. This one by Dries Van Noten is pretty much sold out everywhere you check (Unless you know something I don’t?) but I love the other ones as well.

Anyway… Which one do you like best?

Keisha is wearing this Zara coat, and awesome shorts from OAK. The other coats are Rochas, Miu Miu, Jil Sander and Topshop!

On The Street… Marina

I love the mix of of dramatic top (love the inside of the sleeves, red) with a more casual pair of shorts, with the detail of the belt I’d never had thought about. It’s smart, fresh, and perfect to go to the shows.

Bike

bike

This weekend is the last one before back to school. New York fashion week is starting next week (Arrrrgh ! So early !) and you can already feel the electricity…

So this weekend, this looong Labor Day weekend (here, Monday is a holiday) is one of the most delicious and most nostalgic of the year. What we love to do is to stay in the city, hop on our bikes and visit neighborhoods we don’t know, new restaurants, go up to Central Park, cross the bridges and go thrift shopping in Brooklyn, end up totally drunk at the Wythe Hotel, looking out at the skyline…
On a bike, the city is yours.

Have a great weekend !!!

PS : In the picture, Nista has the perfect biking outfit : A hat (and don’t forget to wear sunblock) a messenger bag – Ok, kind of, a Proenza Schouler PS1 – shorts, and flats.

On the Street…..Perfect Casual Shirt, Milan

I really think this is how a casual shirt should fit, not too tight or loose and cut right at the wrist.  I’ll be taking this shot with me when I take my linen shirts to the tailor to have the length brought up.

Style Bites – Short or Shorter

Temperatures are going up – and so do hemlines. The shorter the better? A majority of men would surely answer that question with a clear ‘yes’ – having tanned female legs in mind. Sure, we can go as short as we want, wear skirts, dresses or shorts, wear them casual, sexy or dressy. But what about a pretty male leg? Can a man get away with bare legs in an urban environment? Could he even wear shorts at work? If yes – how short can he go without looking undignified? What seperates beachwear from city wear?

When asking around amongst my friends opinions were drifting far apart. Some were stricly ‘no shorts without a surfboard under your arm’, some were ‘equal rights for men!’ and a few answered with a nonchalant ‘why not?’ knowing exactly that it’s all about the right length, material, top and shoes (and maybe socks? But that’s a different story, told another time…).

Wear a crisp white shirt with simple half length shorts and loafers or Doc Martens like Christoph and nobody will mistake you for a surfer dude. If you want to go a bit more formal you can wear a blazer along with your bemuda shorts (just try to avoid the school uniform/ AC/DC look) and if you are lucky enough to live in Bavaria… get yourself a lederhosen like Joerg – chic, timeless, undestroyable and comfortable. So use your possibilities, use them wisely, think outside the box and don’t follow aniquated fashion mandates. If you have good legs – we want to see them. In the end women are not so different from men.

Deep Thoughts: Body

body

Hi!  Here are three deep thoughts for your morning.

They’re all about body image and no, I’m not writing this because I’m writing you from the poolside of Hotel Pellicano and I am trying to pep talk myself into taking my first dip of the year. Nope, that’s not at all the reason.

Deep thought #1 : a fit body has become the ultimate fashion accessory.
Or maybe I just have a somewhat distorted view on this as I live right in the middle of fitness and weight hysteria?
The fact is, totally subjectively speaking -and honestly – if you asked me what I wanted to wear this summer, the only thing I ever think to answer is a t-shirt and jean shorts (white) AND the dream body.
 
Deep thought #2: Having the dream body after 15 years old (ok, maybe 25)(ok, we’ll say 30), is a lot of work. It requires real discipline, like Gisele Bündchen revealed in July’s Paris Vogue. No meat, no alcohol, no nothin’… And two hours of exercise every day. Exercise, diet, transcendental meditation, crap, no room for fun! It’s kinda like to be the girl with the dream body, you have to be no-fun Nancy, which is the opposite of cool, right?

Yep, and that’s the reason a lot of women with the “perfect body” try to make us think they do nothing to have their perfect bodies (I scarf down burgers! I hate going to the gym!), because it’s supposed to be cool to have the perfect body without working super hard for it.
Deep thought #2b, just to add… Thank you Gisele for giving us a glimpse of truth.

Okay.
Deep thought #3: so then, a real cool girl’s body is not “perfect.” It’s a little soft around the edges, less rigid. There are maybe a few extra pounds (“No biggie”) or biceps a little less than ripped (“I’d rather go to a coffee shop than to the gym!”), so yeah, not the “dream” body. Well, it IS actually a dream body, maybe just not of fashion designers, but the dream body of the cool girl’s boyfriends.
And if a girl can be less strict about her body, she captures the imagination of all the people around her because what emerges from her less-than-perfectitude is a certain coolitude and self-acceptance : well, you got it! The holy grail.
 
There you go. Maybe I was a little too profound here, but I keep reassuring myself that I’m just a cool girl and getting ready to plunge right in, just like that, SPLASH, just for you.
 
PS: The sublime Erica in the photo definitely has a dream body – I’d love to have a body like that one day, just to see what it felt like – and this photo is what inspired my 3 super deep thoughts.

I would have loved to get a picture of a girl with a less perfect body, just to prove my point, and since the question would be asked, here’s my answer: a real cool girl is often more camera shy and harder to get in a photo wearing a bathing suit. But I promise I’ll try this summer.

Okay, water, here I come!

Style Profile… Angelo Flaccavento

First job?

 

I customized backpacks in high school.  It began with mine, then everyone wanted one. They were quite garish; Disney meets Pollack meets splatter…

 

Current profession?

 

I consider myself a writer; I love words. I think fashion is a fantastic subject as it’s the most immediate, acute, and precise reflection of society. It keeps me excited, because it is constantly changing; the more fashion moves, the more my writing style evolves– a mutual feeding I truly enjoy. A book (already in the making) may be the next step in my career.

 

Who has influenced your journalistic style?

 

I’m a bookworm and spend many sleepless nights reading. I’m particularly fond of Agota Kristof‘s super dry prose, Italo Calvino‘s precise lightness, Giacomo Leopardi‘s grumpiness, and Carlo Emilio Gadda‘s verbal inventiveness. However, I discover new ideas every day, often in the most unexpected places.

 

How has your style evolved over the past 5 years?

 

My choices have become stricter, but my tailoring softer. I’ll be forty soon and have slowly entered a quiet phase, with a few exceptions.

 

Quietness is a state of mind; even my wildest choices, if you look closely, are classic and eminently sartorial– It’s the proportions that sometimes go bonkers.

 

 

Athletics? Hobbies?

 

I jog every day to kip fit because I was a fat child. I’m a self-taught illustrator—I draw kinky little characters every now and then.

 

Never caught wearing?

 

A tank top in public, unless I am jogging.

 

What are your go-to wardrobe staples?

 

Unlined blazers that are softly tailored, single-pleat trousers that are a tad too short (and a bit too wide, with a turn up), and massive brogues are my staples.

 

Which shops could you spend the whole day in?

 

I’m mad for dusty old shops.  I love the bowties and velvet robes de chambre at Charvet in Paris and the unlined blazers from Vertice in Torino. Dover Street Market in London and Piombo in Milano are also great. I see shopping as treasure hunting.

 

What do you wear when traveling?

 

The same as usual, but I replace the blazer with a field jacket or parka so I have proper pockets for everything. You know, beards get custom agents pixilated; I better look proper or they’ll mistake me for the Unabomber! They should know nothing is as it seems…

 

Most visually inspiring place you’ve been?

 

La Canna– a rock protruding from the vast open blue sea not far from the Aeolian island of Filicudi, it’s sublime.

 

Whose style do you admire?

 

Besides the fantastically put-together elderly men I meet every day on the street in Sicily where I live, who wear ages-old pieces with dignity and grace? I would say Peter Sellers

Do you cherish any particular heirloom pieces?

 

A black evening coat with a silver lining that belonged to my late father– it’s boxy and strict in a Mad Men kind of way.

 

Most memorable gift?

 

Love from people I love, both given and received.

 

Most stylish movie?

 

There are so many; Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Teorema, Chris Marker’s La Jetée, Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, The Thief, His wife & Her Lover.

 

How have you surprised yourself recently?

 

By saying a polite NO to a job offer. I hate to say no, but this one sounded like a bluff, despite the good pay.

 

What do you never consider an indulgence?

 

Living in Sicily and being involved in the fashion industry may be considered an indulgence to others. I love being lateral and cherish insularity; it keeps me focused.

 

Most important style advice you’ve received?  

 

I received advice from Wallace Stevens, through his poems, “Reality is the product of the imagination”.

 

Godard provided insight for me to advise a friend in trouble, “It’s not where you take things from, but where you take them to”.

 

What do you feel most powerful wearing?

 

Deep blue; it makes me feel like I ooze Olympic calm.

 

Sartorial rule you never follow?

 

As a rule, I don’t believe in rules. But it’s always helpful to remember that trying too hard is not elegant. One should look like he did not try at all.
