A thought on Isabel Marant – PANTIN CN D Review

Bless Up from your feet to your head top…

We Go Again,

Isabel Marant show is absolutely inspired.

Inspired I say. How, you ask? Imagine the scenes of the post modern brutal concrete architecture of a Parisian Building. How correct does that sound to you?

Brutal post modern Parisian architecture with a concrete facade. Let me break this down, Jacques Kalisz is a Polish architect born from 1920 Poland.

Here’s the twist, Soviet Poland existed from 40 till the early ’90s this is why we will consider Jacques Parisian for the most part and in the postmodern era people were taking materials that did not belong and making them to suit the mould. (Sounds like an era which would Birth parents who would try to do that with a child. Conversation for another day. Perhaps?)

Throughout the 20th Century, Concrete was malleable and cheap therefore not suitable to be the facade (face) of a building.

Well as time went on that idea relaxed which gave way for people to erect buildings made from this which is where we can get such a building in the outskirts of Paris of all places. You mix a Polish non-conformist and put him in a free city the man will reflect that also. Even at 50. Jacques would put himself in place out of place, in order to create a Harmonious space meant for the togetherness of people.

Bring in a child of the ’70s, let freedom reign I would say the Parisian debutante who would build her fashion empire would be inspired by psychedelic childlike fantasies.

Who would juxtapose a building of concrete made for more something some would call an ugly facade and give you the psychedelic playground Alpha, Braien, would play in. Not a reference can be lost at a place made outreach and founded thanks to the ministry’s culture in time to bring people together.

Tie-Dye, Mohair, denim, linen, abstract modernism & Ikat designs and a beat made for the joyous movement of dance, Isabel thought meticulously about this and executed it within her means and is applauded.

j’adore.

A thought on Rick Owens SS21 “PHELEGETHON”

Bless up from your feet to your ed top

We go again

With recent events the fashion world has had to take some licenses to deliver us some work. I sincerely appreciate that and would like to get going by talking about Rick Owens

Rick Owens newest collection Pfor SS21 and I had the inclination to agree with some points.

What @hausofdarkwah was talking about was the interplay of Femininity from masculinity an how explorative some of Ricks earlier silhouette were, as well as unabashedly themselves and the possible muzzle that could have been put on the collection. The term Phlegethon being such a ferocious one meaning one of the Infernal rivers of the underworld you would ask yourself is this the story these clothes are telling and does this truly represent Rick?

As Ayo was saying this collection seems more commercial and buyable. The thing is though as Michael on the panel also said is that their is so much Rick on the market way past the asking and this can be seen as tame especially when faced with the Previous collections they almost seem diametrically opposed to one another the spirit of and infernal fire isn’t flowing like the underworld cult phenomenon Rick Owens usually would.

That being said the space and time that we are in can only have me ask what the possibilities would have been with full recourses would the colours rage in a conniption of Rick Flavour and styling Would the sets be in the pantheon of Rick Owens sets considering how the last collections flourished. I for one will accept this Rick as it is and on a fair setting agree and accept that there are acts of God at play

Be Your Brothers Keeper, not a keeper from your Brothers Destiny

Bless up from your feet to your ed top

we go again

Love thy brother don’t lay with him. Leave that to the destiny God has laid out for him

What does that mean?

In the world I was bought up in many of us didn’t have father figures, there was rarely any in these spaces so we had to look after each other. We grew up on movies and shows like; Remember the Titans, 5brothers, Scarface, Godfather, The Sopranos, Naruto, One Piece, Prison Break. Shows of that ilk that displayed to you what a brother was supposed to be and how you should be. There were also messages in Gangs, Football and all team sports-related shows that men work better as a family and a unit treats each other with respect and covers him. Be your brother’s keeper, have my back I have your, lean on me. Messages of support and oneness bonds that can be.

(This is directed towards men because I am one but I’m sure it happens in all types of relationships)

These messages get skewed in hard times and when the relationship isn’t as strong as it once was. People will change and grow, the men that became your brothers start getting fear of loss and may start pulling you down out of a jaded sense of love because of how scary change is. Many men come from a really good place the crabs in the bucket mentality may develop and schemes may arise to hold each other back and down.

The point isn’t to destroy a great relationship but to build an adult relationship built on change and growth, the biggest deal right now is that when a relationship is built on youth and childish actions like clubbing, drinking, smoking keeping score and chasing skirt, it leaves out room to not grow that ground is marshland, yes you can build up one story maybe two or three, but when the idea is to grow exponentially it is not solid enough to reach any heights higher than humanly possible. In fact, it will only be torn down by acts of nature. The money is missing, love gets involved, someone gets to their life goals quicker it will be hard for anyone to handle that.

The relationship has to be built on the greatest ground possible, you can start on the marsh, meet each other there, learn you’re equals then move from that land to a more solid fertile land built to last. Then you must engineer ideals both of you can rely on in all situations, if not there’s chances of failure. What does this look like:

  • understanding each other honestly
  • Create philosophies you can agree on
  • Know how you can treat women
  • What is money to the both of you

There are simple idealistic thugs that are so pertinent to building an honest personal relationship because in reality, more times a man sees you with a girl and sees you drifting. Instead of thinking that room should be filled by his own Mrs he’s thinking that void can only be filled by you and now he becomes a source of toxicity to your relationship causing you to cheat or even making it seem okay to when your true happiness is being with your Mrs. There’s certain man that see you doing well creating equity in your business, or even you want to start a business and he wants to say you sure, you tell him you’ve been on it for years and you’re ready to bite the bullet now he becomes a source of doubt to your success, even you hit the belly on one of your clients then he’s looking at your businesses money as yours and his money and now you kill your business by spending your hard earned cash on nights out.

If you’re this type of friend stop. I’m speaking directly to the people that feel bad wen their friend is doing good without them. On the business front it’s hard to even structure your finances and other things but on a pure relationship basis if you feel your friend drifting and it’s not a terrible thing and he seems happier then it’s your job to be oxygen to that happiness because that drift can steer you to becoming a better person and direct you to your destiny because what is the point of you being cheeky to your friends business or girl when he’s never wanted that for you. You have to know yourself, there’s no need to read any books to know this but you know the emotion of when you feel down about others feeling good without you and it’s your job to snuff that out.

Everybody has their own time and yours will come the spotlight will be on you and in your time you will be the cause for celebration. So when it’s your friends turn you celebrate because you know yours will come and there is no time to be hating.

1

Your friend would do terrible without his success and if your relationship isn’t built on true emotion (then what’s the point) you may not know how hard and fragile he’s feeling on the inside and the type of light this woman or business brings him.

2

Fan that flame if your friend is trying to feel better about themselves and become a greater person let that beacon shine.

3

That sparing wind you feel between you two find something to hold you down use that extra time to explore your wants and needs and what will be your life’s purpose because lord knows you may also need one.

It’s important that you know your place and role in this world brotherhood is so important and if you know yourself it’s even more important to know when you’re being toxic and when you’re not. If your friend really loves this person or this work has a fiesta for him because when you’re up you’re also going to want and need it.

There are enough people running against you and your clique and there can’t be infighting between brothers because of a disagreement or someone feels like their being outshined. Treat that shine as a lighthouse in a storm to wake you up to the fact of life, you have to grow change and evolve because whether you realise it or not, you want to be better and different and new elements of life & change does that to men.
