Candy, Partly Unwrapped



Maison Margiela Spring/Summer 2016

Advertisement scrap tops and scrunched jackets worn as skirts. Classic Margiela with a slit, suits with studs. Trousers were split in half, the front panel worn as apron. Everything was good.

RAFGIELA




Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2016

Another renaming. A history of renamings. An archive of remaking. Raf Simons to Raf Sander to Raf Sandior to Rafgiela Sandior. Face veil masks in tablecloth. Dark brown flares and cropped knits. Retro without futurism. Tribute to disappeared heroes. Building his own country on countryside fashion.

Teenage boy growing up between sex, disco and farm houses. Chicken feathers and liquid ecstasy. Masturbation via strangulation. History repeats itself and his universe is, as we have learned, a hermeneutic one.

(It Is) Rocket Science (It Is)



Prada Spring/Summer 2016

It has been discussed before but never occured to me so directly, he and she could be and are wearing the same. And as gender identities blurr, the idea of retro-futurism coagulated. All especially apparent in coat dresses and the colour blocked bunny knit resembling the Prada signature women's bandeau top.

The Relevance Of Plastic



Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2016

I am happy again. I want the bags. The shoes. And a suit. Shine was never as subjective and submissive. A passive-aggressive comeback in nylon and pleather. I want to live again, sorry Jil Simons.

Feeders (Barbarella Is A Boy)



1. Craig Green Spring/Summer 2016





2. Christopher Shannon Spring/Summer 2016

You know I do love a gender apocalypse. In this sense, London has achieved everything. Free-the-nipple cut-outs and untied bikini bras. Men do have tits, and they need to be fed on, indeed.
