The Mood Of The Week(End)

A chilled out day.

I just wanted to relax after a week of hard work. Still a bit tan from my recent holiday I thought that showing a bit of flash wouldn’t hurt. I still appreciate my old Freshjive t-shirt from my High School times, that I have “customized” over the years.

I am in a good mood.

Top Freshjive, jeans Cheap Monday, shoes Superga, bra &Other Stories.

More single parts set the whole thing – Segmented shoes

They are an hybrid between a proper shoe and a sandal, for some you can just say that “there is something missing”, but it is always on purpose.

My latest obsession are segmented shoes, a genious and fresh way to re-invent “winter” and classic shoes, such as ankle boots and Oxford shoes. Like some art works in Surrealism and Abstractism where you need to look at the whole thing to see the real image, this kind of shoes are made just by listings and outline, empty spaces wisely connected by straps, transparent plastic, vinyl or pvc…but still you can see their “original” shape, if you look at the whole shoe.

I like the idea, plus you can wear and show nice socks…just to add a trend to another (see The detail that makes the difference – Knee Socks).

The detail that makes the difference – Knee socks

They give me the idea of High School and College uniform, I love them because, specially on women, they add a masculine touch to a girly outfit, or they can turn your look into a cheecky, charming or sexy side depending on the length.

My favourite: plain, pastels or “earthy” colours in wool or cotton, to wear with wedges or brogues, high waisted trousers or pencil skirts.

We can say that they are just socks, after all…a small detail “covered” by the shoes. But we love details and also a pair of socks can make the difference!

Let’s spend a (worthy) word about – Cheap Monday

cheap-monday-ss-2013-collection

Have you seen the Cheap Monday‘s SS13 collection? I did…time ago. At that time I was really focused on shoes, which I instantly loved, but a few days ago, during my endless research of “something and everything” I could write about, I had a second look at the fashion show. I guess I was less focused on shoes (which I still deeply love) and more at the general look of every outfit, but I have to say that I really appreciated it!

For the collection, we have focused on anomalies such as the androgynous or genderless, treating these subjects in relation to the frames of duality. We have gone to outer space, returning with UFO and alien inspiration for prints and materials. The alien, artificial, ambiguous, strong, weird and genderless is central for the collection.

So, I think that Cheap Monday deserves a particular attention. There is also something that reminds me the Clerks‘s 90s style, but with something more stylish. We really need to thanks Cheap Monday for that!
