My life has been innately negative From the start and it hasn’t stopped the thing I was blessed with was skill to convey message and execute it thoroughly .

A life of a genius’ pain. I don’t live one without the other

My skill helps me stand tall in the face of all adversity pain and trauma, endlessly bittersweet and always a lesson learned. My life as a case study for those that go through it all in life and are unable to field the lessons or see past their trauma to use mine as a guide

The good from my life comes from the greatness of my skill and those that recognise it. My trauma was born with me my pain perpetuated it I having the skill to still work while it exists is no mere feat. Although I don’t ask for applause I ask for us all to do better

A Note on Sickle Cell: The Addict Stigma & Opioid Crisis ‘We are in pain not addicts’

We go again,

While in pain the fastest course of action is Painkillers from Paracetamol to stop a fever and Ibropofen to quell inflammation all the way to Opioids to numb the whole body completely from the real excruciating pain of a crisis.

With such pain it is very important it gets dealt with in haste, however Sickle Cell patients have to deal with being thought of as an addict as they have to use high caliber of drug to deal with insufferable pain. Most of these medications are not available to the general public, as a Sickle Crisis sufferer you are taught from young to stay informed and be vigilant about your medical condition so having such information can be seen as a catch 22, that being said should it really be at the cost of the sufferers?

This particular blog addresses the stigma which tells doctors that Sickle Cell patients are PainKiller addicts on top of not believing black pain as detailed in a portion of humanity — (please check out the blog as they relate heavily) they believe that Sickle Cell patients present as Opioid addicts — this causes some of the patients to have longer wait times and to be tested to ensure to the Doctor in question this patient has Sickle Cell.

These prior exams have a negative effect on patients, further research shows there is no president for Sickle Cell patients ever being addicts. A study shows patients are less likely to get addicted to painkillers due to the natural nature of the pain. All the while America is in the middle of an “Opioid Crisis” and more and more people being hooked on prescription pills like Percocet’s Oxy and Codeine all of which are exactly the pills used to handle chronic pain making it really bad new for Sickle Cell patients who have been lumped in with abusers.

A great deal of Sickle Cell patients as well as I, dislike having to rely on taking certain pain medication more often than not those sufferers who decide to hold off taking pain medication until the last moments. Pain Killers do not cure anything on the part of the patients there relieves the pressure of pain; some situations end up like my anecdotal evidence in Living Through a Crisis.

I have been looked at as an addict more times than I have actually been treated for my pain; prior to ever getting proper attention to my medical emergency, this irks especially when there is no basis scientific or factual basis of this more often than not its a ‘pseudo-analysis based on what presents as signs of addiction…’ I want to changed that.

I do believe though that opioids do not need to be the only solution, Sickle Cell Pain  is a symptom of the sickling of blood stuck in the blood vessel; the pathway is blocked so it causes irritation then further pain. That being said painkillers are used to stop feeling the pain while the Sickled blood runs its lifespan.

That being the case there must be other means to help your body stop feeling the pain or to effect the pain area directly. We can only wait for more clinical trials and better studies for how to beat treat this pain and for now it is controlled drugs. There are Studies with Cannabinoid (CBD) oils engineered to help patients suffering with

A Note On Sickle Cell: What Helped me Help Myself — A dose of optimism

We go for great,

I used to live my life reactionary to what people thought of my medical condition. I was used to it, so I disengaged early, I wanted to be a normal kid. I did grow curious, some part of me grew to seriously ask myself questions — wanting to understand if what people thought of me through the lens of my condition was the me I actually am — the look of like I’m suddenly part of a lower subset of human; the look of as if I live like a man on death row; the look of a decrepit helpless man. This is the look I find in their eyes.

All those looks were not controlled by me, it would have some very negative effects this fuelled me wanting to find the truth so I did my first ever “Google’s”. My first mistake, (never try find true documentation with the highest google answer). This would play on my mind for a while till I took a real look at what the findings were, I didn’t just search up on Wikipedia or the NHS website I would start to read medical journals and see how it is defined. My findings concluded, its not a death sentence.

(Even further I have come up with hypothesis on how to treat it; that is for another blog. )

How I saw myself looking after my body was different. I didn’t automatically start treating it like a temple. What I knew though is with strong bones, a strong body and cardio vascular system your quality of life will have levelled & or better than the next guy because sickle cell puts you in the position to have to live to a higher standard of nutrition as a basic prerequisite.

With all the people I have seen with the condition (numbering in the hundreds) those with less complaints eat a balanced diet go to the gym to move weights and don’t make reckless decisions, those with the best life have THE BEST LIFESTYLE. I want to stress it does not absolve crisis, it helps the pain tolerance to be higher because the body is generally in better shape and used to the stresses of those physical activities. So the friends that look ‘perfectly healthy’ will participate in sports activities and or socially drink and don’t “look like” they have sickle cell till they tell you look after themselves to a very high standard. Everyone though is healthy till they are not.

This means being an active participant in your health. I listen to my body and assess the situation, when I do that I have better control of my days. I’m not saying there aren’t days I can be gripped by pain, not at all. I know what’s best for me and what’s not so good for me when it comes to activity.

I feel great daily if I look after my body daily. This is something all of my brothers and sisters to know, I’m not the biggest guy but I started with the smallest weights and the shortest session but slowly year after year I gained more inner strength to compose myself and try out for my university Gymnastics team. Being very honest it was the best decision I made as an adult. Making sure within myself that this is my own body I own it, my identity is what I make of it, Sickle Cell is not me it exists while I’m alive but it will not condemn me to a life of fear and destitution.

If this makes sense pass it on, just like the death sentence disease idea that was probably passed on hand this piece of information over too, instead of looking at friends and family with desperate despair maybe this dose of optimism will do you all some good.

NYT STYLE: My Autumn Style

bless up from your feet to your head top

we go again,

It’s been some time since I’ve made my style diary, I have spent so much time in building definition a way with clothes given my ‘Comfort is my Luxury’ philosophy autumn menswear has played a big role in that, who let the Borgs out from 2018 & Orange is the colour of the season in 2019 as well as pattern prints and sigils the evolution of what I wear has taken shape with full esteem during this year.

I have spent so much time talking to people in fashion and with high consideration to European fashion with my real in depth research I just don’t see it as my standard of dress anti-fashion or anything of the kind.

My style is built up off the values Comfort Luxury and ostentatiousness, being able to bring colour to an outfit; to being comfortable no matter what I’m wearing; my clothes having a long shelf life and pulling things off not many could I see myself almost over the hill. These articles are for the people in the street though and sharing something many can do.

The Fur

My belief level has shot up during this late summer as well as my confidence in pulling off certain looks especially Fur. Fur encapsulates Luxury and Comfort but I’m here to tell you there’s also ways to pull it off all people can do.

I had spent so much time looking for a fur, first thought they were expensive and elusive but in talking to a friend i found you could acquire gems through thrifting so I scoured the internet for one my size and style, your personal taste and price point is your own i found mine and paid what i was willing to pay to get it.

 I want everyone to know you can wear fur, just look after it and air it out, dry clean and brush it, Just like any other garment you have to cater to. Really simple and if its made well it wont lose volume, this is all down to your own discretion.

For more on this head to Center of Style

The Outfit Styling

Now it gets time to wearing your fur just like I did my borg, most people will think you have to wear some nice boots like you see in the movies, me i did not, i wanted to pair them with trainers, now i had a decision to make to pull the whole outfit together. You wear it like everyone else you have all the ideas in the world wearing it myself with luxury comfort and audacity, this takes work though so what i needed to do. I quickly decided though i was going to wear trainers comfort, I love texture so i wanted to contrast them with something, a leather look, I couldn’t double it up top though so it had to be pants and I  had to really ensure they suit or else i cant put myself out there like that. Now the fear kicks in, yes fear, because who has the audacity to pair fur with leather (not just leather its a leather print)? Me thats who so we can cross of ostentatious and luxury off the list now to mellow out and get comfortable. Queue my Trainers and Hoodie, yes thats right hoodie. My partner my compadre, my sweater with a hood; my anorak. Ol’ hoodie of mine lets shie, old reliable.

So many  minds will think about dressing up fur, because it’s fur its known as a luxury item, it came from some sort of animal and was treated as a luxury since its inception, but with my menswear philosophy you see clothes rationally, its not a “Fur” first its a cold, it keeps you from cold, thats what it’s meant for the rest are social rules. Where people would have wore it dressed to the nines like frank Lucas, I’m me. These clothes are my comfort, some can say it’s dressing down but I was dressing sincere, Social rule is broken and my Coat is my Coat regardless of what its made from. So I wore my hoodie my coat printed leather & trainers and went on my merry way.

Hindsight 2020 help me write this article, if the outfit had sucked it wouldn’t even make it as an article and I would be talking about how fur is just in. For me its further than that though, I created an outfit I loved in real time. The fact i was able to pull together what was considered opposites of the spectrum and find a new plane of existence for the hoodie is a testament to just what writing about fashion and talking about fashion can do, little nuggets like bargain hunting for an item i have always wanted so i can get it for less than RRP (blog coming) allowed me to push a boundary way earlier than I thought I would.

Just like you should always be able to, wear your fur with your hoodie this autumn, get yourself a fur, don’t treat your clothes like they belong to a social construct or occasional affair (article incoming) wear what you want in the way you want (with rational) have a great day

A Dialogue On: Hip Hop And High Fashion

A guy I’m familiar with said ‘Kanye made fashion cool for the lower class’ and it made me pause, only for the way it was stated, because lower class is formally black people in this statement. Bar that the statement isn’t entirely wrong. However, the statement was slightly rebutdtaled and he was made to recant. That being said as soon as I saw it I came with facts on why it was true.

Kanye being the biggest thing in hip hop for the majority of the Millennium has been saying names like Bernard Arnault Tom Ford, Drexler, Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Margiela, Marc Jacob and his teacher Louise Wilson = some of the most influential people in fashion for the past 30 years. What does saying name have to do with anything? you may ask, Well the evocation of these names provoke further insight into understanding the language of Dr. West, if you’re a fan you want to understand this language it sparked research for a generation listening to Kanye interviews and for those of us into fashion these names created a road map to understand the industry as it stands.

I know what people are thinking, how does this make him the most influential, well you have to be able to contextualise how the world of fashion was before Kanye West.

The language of the 70’s

To put a small piece of what was happening – It’s the 70’s cocaine hit the streets in America, while Segregated has just been abolished. America is still sore after The F.B.I. killed Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. Britain is adopting punk styling, Wind rushing in from the west for more people on the workforce after a loss to Japan. The Berlin Wall is still raging and Cold War is dominating headlines. The fashion on people’s minds were nothing too avant-garde Ready to Wear was just no getting envogue and Cristobal Balenciaga just died so you’re coming out of the high society into, the new wave. Denim is the flavour of these seasons and no one really cares about any of these houses. One after the other they die off while the world is trying to rebuild after the world wars whilst trying to avoid another one.

Long lasting thoughts are on people’s minds things that can last and keep forever plastic denim leather was all the rage and because of the way retail operated it was humble for most businesses. A little store called Walmart was about to change that. The Fashion Magazines we see are in their height as women are in their revolution and they are coming out the house to earn their keep so what does a woman wear to work ? These questions were best answered in Vogue

The Language of the 80’s

Crack cocaine, Aids, Mass Incarceration, racism is running hot Again as police beat down black men as 3 strikes recidivism/ stop and search put these men in the most terrorised areas in harms way. In Britain Vivienne Westwood is an honorary Queen that runs her Kingdom, Youth culture starts its insurgence as the old way of working isn’t working and British Caribbean citizens have jobs white British citizens don’t want so they go to African immigrants too causing massive racism to ensue there’s not much here for them so Brixton riots. We don’t want that again so we are going to change that. In France & rest of Europe there’s a resemblance of fashion week but nothing is really taking hold we’re all still suffering from the Cold War and still trying to figure out how to navigate dealing with non high society citizens.

All this while Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent, Armarni, are reigning supreme and Versace is well on its way meanwhile Louis Vuitton merges with Moet Hennessy, something big is about to happen Rei Kawakubo & Yohji Yamamoto and Maison Margiela along with the Antwerp 6 are plotting to take over the fashion industry. Hip hop is still in its infancy but the fashion stylings are infamous, Adidas shell toes and Kangol – Karl Kani is moving while Cross Colours is bound to touch the streets, Prince is doing what prince does all the while no one but the trans and drag scene is doing it too. All the while Dapper Dan follows the high society blueprint of dressing the most richest and most luxurious people around. His style never really effected the streets with nothing but aspiration as who could afford it but the street millionaires.

Vogue Harper’s Bazaar have only gotten bigger as youth culture gets involved and they start creating trends for people to latch onto, what Anna creates for them were new narratives for women ‘There’s a new kind of woman out there.’

The Language of The 90’s

The Cold War is over so is the Berlin Wall the dissolution of the Soviet Union means capitalism won. An absolute turning point in the world the mindset of “the west” kicks in the American dream is one of capitalist intent get what you can and kill for it some people take that literally as Versace dies in this decade we’re about to be involved in a new millennium and Kering** and LVMH* devise plans for corporate roll ups of some of the biggest fashion houses Francoise Pinault** and Bernard Arnault* have been getting families to sell off their names and revise and market the houses the way they saw fit. A big part of Fashion today is heritage. A Big part of the mindset back then wasn’t fast and easily consumable it was long lasting aspiration in the new millennium that is what we got.

We were programmed to see all of these houses as heritage and they take out the biggest ads in the biggest way. We look at Nike with their Jordan Collab is doing excellent as well as the uptown’s become famous in New York, not to forget Dennis Rodman dressing flamboyantly to games beside him made him a superstar in his own right. While Adidas grows ideas of its own to own the sports technology market SPOILER ALERT: 20 years down the line they do that.

Rap music is less corny thanks to NWA and rappers like Tupac and Snoop Dog take the numbers to stratospheric heights while Bad Boy label with Biggie and Diddy have them influencing the culture with their own clothing lines and selling off their swag for more money Jay-Z follows suit years later but the talks of high fashion doesn’t come till Anna Wintour meets Puff Daddy and takes him to shows allowing hip hop into the fold

This brings hat to recently where I was asked who was the most influential people are. After all of the abridged jabber I’ve done I think the answer is clear there was no true individual that put fashion on the map. People were always just dressing, when it comes to knowing who made what your wearing in terms of high fashion styling of an individual there’s no one individual that exemplifies that other than Kanye. When we say names like Dior Versace McQueen Tom Ford Fendi as part of our vernacular and vocabulary these names come to play because of how the “Louis Vuitton Don” gave us Christian Dior denim flow and Pharrell flew him out to Japan where he would meet streetwear legend Jun Takahasi, Nigo and Takashi Murakami. That’s as far as the influence with Pharrell goes as far as we know

There is not a single individual who has professed love for fashion the way Kanye does in the modern way we do now. Reading in between the lines of you were caught round gay people you were accused of being gay or having aids being gay in general was bad for your career. Having a guy like Kanye at his height cape for these high fashion super stars.

This led to rumours about his sexuality as the culture would have it back then but after the boom of anti-fashion in the 90’s at that point we have had pretty much all styles to do with what we would. However something happened that didn’t happen to a super star before Kanye people started caring about what he cared about with fashion. Dennis Rodman and Prince before him got slated or allowances but would never be emulated by a majority. where it was Kanye is having kids doing the twin polos. People would say Jay Z made people “change clothes” but honestly that would easily be out of a minority. Just like Westside Gunn today and ASAP Rocky yesterday, Kanye talking about fashion designers not in his rhymes but as a real life hobbie going to school with Louise an internship at Fendi and becoming close friends with Anna validated him. Next step was to execute something no one else could create the Mr Hudson and the Don dubbed after his friend Mr Hudson and Don C. Recognised by the epitome of luxury at this point Kanye moves his attention to create a relationship with a trainer brand along with the Donda Mafia bring in the Air Yeezy 1 & 2 cultural Phenoms and the Red October cemented it.

People will be conscious there have been people into ‘fashion’ only really in terms of street style and metro styling

(Streetstyle = inner city youth

Metro Styling = metropolitan workers )

Fashion industry was in a slump and most houses were bankrupt or dead/dying if it wasn’t for Bernard Arnault’s vision and rebranding and Pinault doing the same fashion wouldn’t be where it is today there was an aligning of the stars the world of fashion would come out of the snobbery and racism enough for a guy like Kanye do something only a Genius could do make the general public care about high fashion.

First things first I want people to know we’re currently living in a world of firsts as Britain and America have been dubbed the first world meaning military might is powerful and no fighting can happen on this soil. Peoples tension are high with the government but everyone is too scared to rock the boat or start a civil war so we are being drop fed our asks because of the hypnotising state that we get indoctrinated in by the media that fighting for change isn’t absolutely on the cards.

All that being said these are peace times, threat of war is further than you think after all that was listed above. It’s quite hard to create a movement to rally the people for change in this day and age.

that being said this is a big deal, Kanye came on the cusp of a time people needed something new to care about and aspire to do. It wasn’t gangster rap or selling drugs or flossing like Jay-Z, those were all old news and there had been enough death terrible news and not enough endorsements coming into Hip Hop all the while being reimbursable. We witnessed this with Jay and Diddy before Ye, slight difference is; Roc-a-Wear and Sean Jean is different those were inter culture seeded and hip hop supported but they did not move the needle in the entire fashion realm. Alexander McQueen and Galliano we’re alive making art not caring about what Hip Hop was doing, they did have a man in rap be able to meet them where they are.

It’s weird to even say it myself that Kanye was the most influential when it comes to a whole generation caring about Fashion, he was the electrical charge that allows the current to flow, a conduit to the world of fashion that would have an easier passage for people of the culture. Much like these articles and YouTube videos

The rebrand made us in the “New Millennium” as it was see these big houses as heritage brands where they would all say how

The Masterful Clare Waight Keller – Successful British Couturier

Bless up From Your Feet to Your ed top

We go again

The notion I see perpetuated in my fashion circles is, Clare Waight Keller (CWK) failed at Givenchy. I felt that was a bit weird considering how much success she had during the run. Much like Galliano she spent a short while revamping the house while not focusing on Ready To Wear as much and dedicating her time to couture and conceiving a vision of the house for whom she would pass the baton to.

I have my own personal feelings about calling menswear tailoring couture but she spent a great deal of time catering to enhancing the vision of the Givenchy man, one which Matthew Williams will inherit.

Chadwick Boseman in Givenchy Couture

Clare Waight Keller and Mens Couture

After growing so much clientele for menswear CWK emboldened the Nouveau riche to explore the detailing and embroidery women are accustomed to in couture. Such is the growing ideas of Kim Jones at Couture with his past collections with Dior, exceptionally so with his AW20/21 – as he took a nod to Judy Blame, from Marc Bohan.

The intricacies in the work she was attempting to execute for the haute couture was to reinstate a new vision to the eyes of the men who could afford as a long stretch away from Ricardo Tisci graphics work with Rottweilers and Sharks.

The ideas presented were such supposed to be art creating a clientele and inspiration to anyone who would come after allowing one Vision to marry with the next truly passing the baton not just for couture but also for ready to wear as Galliano did for McQueen prior.

Men Dressed in Clare Waight Keller Givenchy

Most of all the idea that there was supposed to be a high focus of sales at Givenchy when for couture that’s never the case it’s creating clientele for the atelier on 3 Avenue George V – if that agenda can be used on Galliano for McQueen, so rightly so it could be used here.

Clare Waight Keller- Money Moves

I’ve taken special consideration to this case especially since Clare has created 2 power house moves in her career, at Pringle and Chloe the narrative is the same, she had a ball of a time creating looks for women to buy in ready to wear reviving a house and selling tremendously. Taking Pringle to a global brand and having Chloe be at $400M in sales the year she left. Both houses, healthy condition, and profitable.

It only stands to reason if her purpose was Ready-To-Wear she would have a 3 peat, instead it was creating couture fit for clientele at the atelier and by my account needed help. She happened to get the greatest press hits for Givenchy 1) as the men she dressed were cited being best dressed in those years, which for the uninitiated brings more hype to Givenchy for them to buy it. 2) She created the Duchess of Sussex Wedding Dress.

Clare Waight Keller Dressing a Princess

Being a royal dressmaker is a star for any fashion designer, here it’s no different. Givenchy is known for dressing Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy but no Princess wedding dresses. The point being made is this bought an esteem to the house that no even the name sake could bring, often times the narrative being spouted isn’t as such a pure one as in this case when we reflect on Clares success it is a crowning achievement in Fashion history and the houses history. If she had only done that, it is a job well done.

Did Clare Waight Keller flop around Givenchy? No

The value of CWK is there and her stats are up on the scoreboard, we can fudge the numbers or look at it with a clear perspective. She did what she was supposed to do and left.

  • Did she give a new identity to menswear
  • Did she put Givenchy in the press as a slick Nouveau riche house
  • Dis she make something for other little princesses to aspire to
  • is her foundation profitability

Answers to all of that is yes. Now she’s moved on and so shall we.
