Mobile Suit Gundam, William Gibson’s Neuromancer, Jedi, Wall-E, and “Ridley Scott color-blocking”: these were just a few of the Introverted but willing to discuss dogs shirt But I will love this references dropped by Siki I’m as we scanned this collection from orbit. It’s nostalgia for past futures was, as he cheerily pointed out, a big influence here, along with what he described as “my love for ’90s post-punk new wave.” A German-Korean who studied architecture in Oxford and fell into fashion in New York, this designer’s identity lying beneath those layers of inspiration made for a collection in which the cacophony of references struck a fresh and interesting harmony. Soft modernist horn-buttoned suiting and shirting often collarless, sometimes kimono style—in silk charmeuse or worsted wool featured Gundam prints plus a smattering of velcro patching and strapping in order to allow the wearer to play around with the volume of his look and feel like some back-from-the-future badass. Hard vectors of seaming were stitched onto the gently contoured shirting and pants to deliver the dichotomy I’m was aiming for. This dystopian punk 3.0 note was counterpointed by a strong sportswear-rooted section that included a foldable Jedi-Esque poncho totally Tauntaun and some paneled short-shorting that set the thrust course of conversation direct to Berghain (I’m was getting ready for a visit). Whatever your reason for getting into I’m quad stretching or mind-bending—he presents a distinct menswear aesthetic that feels both future-proof (at least for now) and exactingly thought through. If you were looking into that “one value” for all the wealth sold, and wanted to account for wealth in “real terms”, then you are still likely to be measuring the value of the wealth in terms of a given currency. The value for any amount of wealth is measured in terms of what that currency buys at a certain point in time. To translate that into something we might call the real value of that wealth we have to ascertain how much of the same currency would be required to purchase that wealth in an “anchor year”. The ratio of the amount of money needed to purchase the current amount of wealth today versus the amount of money needed to buy the same amount of wealth in the anchor year, gives us the inflation rate. The total “real” wealth sold would a hundred million dollars. The value of wealth sold measured in terms of what that currency would buy in the anchor year is 100 million.
Introverted but willing to discuss dogs shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
Sander Lak made his official menswear debut from an upper hall of the Introverted but willing to discuss dogs shirt But I will love this Opéra Bastille, where the stunning view out to Paris was nearly panoramic. It was a not-so-subtle reminder that today’s show also marked his first outside of New York, where he is now among the brightest stars of the city’s Fashion Week. Scheduled after Loewe and before Thom Browne, Lak presented both the men’s Fall capsule, now available to buy; the new Spring collection; plus some womenswear and if you didn’t know any better, you’d assume Sies Marjan has been on the Paris calendar all along. “There are an elevation and tougher competitive spirit in Paris; but in the end, I was just thinking about what is the best work I can make the most beautiful version of whatever it is I’m trying to translate,” he said, with impressive composure. That “whatever” was expressed by Erykah Badu’s “I Want You,” an extra-long track from 2003 that oozes anxious longing and intensifying soul. It could also be felt in rounded expanses of male décolleté, outerwear spanning skin tones, knitwear underpinnings, and tied waists that could be undone with a single pull. That “whatever” was Lak addressing male sexuality in a highly nuanced way. “What can you show off the male body that isn’t necessarily porn or sex or gay or straight?” he said. “It’s this idea of nudity while fully dressed.” In parallel, though, he also seemed determined to give the pieces a more elevated positioning. Chromatic leather jackets some embossed with a croc-effect unstructured trench coat in deep hues and sensuous constructions of silk not unlike his women’s designs got this point across. Lak, in any case, wasn’t making a radical statement for this coming out so much as a deeply personal one. “I put everything into my work, and it’s about having to expose yourself.” It’s rare to hear a designer discuss his or her own emotional vulnerability in the moments before or after a show; and yet this is what gives Sies Marjan a resonance beyond his sumptuous explorations of texture or color. Now if we have ascertained that 110 million dollars of spending have occurred in the current year, that doesn’t mean we have determined that we have a 110 million dollars in currency, because a given amount of money can be used for spending over and over. In fact the proper way to calculate the amount of spending is the take the average number of times each unit of the money supply is used for spending in that year (the velocity of money V) times the face value of the total amount of money in the money supply
