Arah on YouTube: Is 2054 Looking Mediocre? – A Louis Vuitton “Techwear” Special Project by Virgil Abloh Review

I give my general perspective on all aspects of the 2054 collection from the time period, tech wear motif, to who has done and represented work in this way before and what I thought about the clothes prints and fabrics used.

It was a great to touch on all the topics here from tech wear to give a shout out to good artists I like but I also highlight the general challenges Virgil is having while creating because of all the eyeballs on him

Theres not been much inventiveness that has been in fashion this year and the amount of quality creations has been slim Virgil abloom is trying to break this form by adding tech wear into the wider conversation of high fashion which in itself is worth a head nod

Tech wear is an important part of menswear today because it embodies the utility of masculinity and productive inventive want men will be having in their clothing for years to come this display by Virgil abloom is a meek imitation of that and serves as a overpriced entry point to the ever growing niche.

The most inventive part of the collection was the print, the Thermo Rainbow sound wave cam pattern with embossed monogram logo is absolutely to die for and something I believe will be used by future designers that fly the LV banner and something it seems that could have only came from Virgils brilliant mind.

Arah on YouTube: Dior Stussy Fall 2020 Runway Show | Reaction & Review (Surfer Type Beat)

Soon as I heard this was happening I locked in instantly to set up my cam. After a very hard video I made about Dior Jordan I thought this would make up for it and I was very surprised to put it in words. Some good looks and I always love the tailoring now we are looking at colour texture and creativity of the cut.

I can always trust Dior for the classic Parisian and Kim Jones for the monogram print to tie together to make a great reinterpretation of all the things we love from berets to sports jackets to boots coats and totes.

The man who is new to this whole fashion realm has Dior as a great entry point and when you look deeper has depth layers and the advanced intricacies that can only bought about by a house that has been around for the better part of a century.

As menswear evolves so does the clientele and the amount of men involved, as more men get involved in fashion the more time and space there will be for him to get to learn what makes Dior Dior. And Kim Jones holds those principles as his play thing as they are transmuted into something that entertains the eyes as well as the bodies

A Thought On: What the Greatest People on Earth do

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

One of the sentiments that I had to grow up with was this intense sense of being a hard worker, doing your best and have something to show for it. The doing your best but it still being a b or c grade wasn’t enough it was you done your all and everything there was to do because you knew it all.

Yes now that’s the most intense pressure a human can be under to know it all and apply 100% effort to those things with precise execution and tremendous performance and effort.

However having that in your psyche as an adult if you could really get with it and have it become part of the fabric of your personality puts you in a zone without many people existing in it.

You study the most you practice the most you perform the most everyday with laser focus and an eye for the one true goal, doing your best and having something to show. Many people let go of that sentiment as kids because why would you do that but perfectionists grab hold of it. Know they’re not that good and do their all to be better, eventually when you look to the left and to the right of you there aren’t many people there but the people who are like minded.

Execution is fun, winning is fun, performing at the highest level is fun, the pressure doesn’t exist because you’re enjoying doing your best because you’re performing on a level many people don’t have the wherewithal to perform under.

You have your principles of performance and you find avenues to the greatest ways of winning. Your charisma takes you places others can’t stand because pressure is non existent because you’ve lived under the circumstances so long.

Much like a power lifter who does the most your warm up or cool down is many people’s max or personal best. Living in this state of focus pressure and performance isn’t for the faint of heart and accolades wait at the top for people who have the enchantment of love for this way of life.

I couldn’t live without it. Knowing there’s people out here who live this way gives me a fire for wanting to do more, the motivation to be at the top and giving your all till you’re empty every time is something reserved for the people who will stop at nothing to get it. That sounds like a great place to be.
