I actually started this blog about 8 months ago as a purely personal expression. I’ve always loved fashion for as long as I can remember so I wanted somewhere to vent, somewhere to talk about the stuff I think is cool, and I didn’t (and still don’t) really mind if anyone reads it or not, I just initially needed that output for my passion.
I’m big on streetwear, and the stuff I wear is testament to that, I often sport brands such as Patta, Carhartt, A.P.C and Palace, all with strong ties to street culture. Down at the foot level I own a variety of Adidas, Nike and Jordan models. I’m not a trend follower particularly, but just because a certain look is popular it won’t put me off it.
I take a lot of cues and inspiration in the way I dress for the Japanese and the South Koreans, I like the statement pieces and the really ‘out there’ looks, I like that they’re not scared to throw on a Raf overcoat or some Rick Owens boots and really put themselves out there; where I grew up that kind of stuff got you bullied, so it’s cool to see people get embraced and even respected for that level of style.
Recently I think the lines between streetwear and high fashion have become increasingly blurred. Brands like Raf Simons and Haider Ackermann are really pushing those boundaries with prices and materials and pioneers such as the likes of A$AP Rocky and Ian Connor really contesting what’s acceptable.
I’ll just keep posting what I like and hope people like it!
Peace, Zack x
