Your Tuesday Pick me Up

Leandra Medine | January 31, 2012

Not that you need one, it’s a hundred degrees outside. In any case, January and February always prove massively uncreative months. Temperatures render inappropriate for the style advances manifesting in our heads, and current clothes feel so…lame. I don’t mean that in a gold tube scarf capacity. Ener this jolt of inspiration. Behold, the bountiful layering capabilities and tent like silhouettes of our collective dreams. While yes, in a digital world where pre fall collections have already deemed old, these are stills from (gasp) an age old Kenzo Spring 2012 show. A conversation on set with the Laquan Smith teamyesterday while I co-styled an intergalactic Fall lookbook of sorts re-spurred a fundamental appreciation for the Opening Ceremony effect present in most every garment shown.

This puts the -andma in grandma and charges the proverbial brain battery with a cap/bandana hybrid hat most representative of one certain elongated cap of the baseball variety a la Sandlot. Are you with me? It’s okay if you’re not but IMDb that shit.

Alas, the palazzo parachute pant is not dead, and if you redirect eyesight toward the northern region of this photo, embrace an inkling at what you may see on TMR in forthcoming weeks: peplums as layering devices over pants and skirts were “everything” through fall, but it’s about the torso this time around. More on this soon. Tootles.

    These are pretty amazing. I love the shapes. They may repel men, but they've hooked me. At the risk of sounding like I'm sucking up to you (which okay, maybe I am) I love your stuff, Repeller. Beautiful and funny. What could be better?

  • Alexandra

    Stunning!! I have to say that the ginormous orange dress with baseball hat doesn't do it for me, but the other silhouettes are so striking and exciting! Thank you for the inspiration!

  • Michelle of Chellbellz

    Outfit #1 is giving me life! I love everything down the shoes! i even like the parachute top! I saw Kenzo's PreFall Collection and I'm currently saving my pennies for a red gathered jumper that i saw on there.

  • Sharon

    Love the layering in the first picture!


  • helin’s musings

    wow!!! even a single piece of these is enough to repel men, including those with very low standards… maybe save for the jacket in the first pic… and i'm sure you'd totally take care of that.. and no i didn't IMDB that shit, coming from you, I'm sure they're hilarious references..

  • James Gerrard

    love, love, loveee, so great

  • Maria B

    MR, do you think bigger clothes make women look thinner because they look like they're swimming in them? This has always been a burning question of mine. I am short and quite small, but a little curvy as well. What I am trying to say is, would parachute pants make me look more like Twiggy or, you know, the planet Jupiter? Inquiring minds need your brilliant input.

    Love your blog, and your charming psychosis.

  • Lydia

    I want to live inside that orange maxi dress.

    That very first design looks like it was created for you. We can so picture you finding someway to rock that. Interesting designs, not entirely sure how wearable.

  • Material Fixations

    Hhhmmmm…. some of these are a little moo moo reminescent, but ok. I really love the parachute pants though.

  • Between Racks

    i can't see one piece that is not man repelling. maybe the bra on 1st. i totally agree with you.

    Hi everybody,

    Skate board is the sports equipment that is used for skate boarding. This consists of
    a Maple wood board which is specially designed for the purpose. The Maple wood
    board is also combined with polyurethane coating for stronger durability as
    well as smooth rides. The board is propelled by the rider by pushing it with
    one foot while the rider’s other foot remains on the board. The skate board is
    also propelled by sliding it down the slope and allowing gravity to do the
    propelling job. Penny 22 Complete Skate Board Paste…..Long Board
