Tin Shit

April 21, 2012

Actually, I call this one: when classic goes crazy. Well, I’m at Coachella and as aforetweeted, it’s just like fashion week but with live music, flower crowns and Havaiana flip flops–it’s also 110 degrees, wearing anything more elaborate than the listed is just ambitious. Except a pair of tin man inspired Superga sneakers. I’ve briefly penetrated the notion of timelessness and my rejection of such–sartorial conquests should always bring to mind vividly memories the way scent and music do but there is something to be said about a brand described as classic–figure Converse, Superga, on a higher scale: Chanel, doing the unconventional. Sure I can opt for the classic linen or canvas in an array of red, navy, beigein this particular silhouette but why endure normal when I can embrace the crazy? Well, not crazy per se, they’re just silver and mesh combo sneakers. This is more about removing oneself from a comfort zone though, looking to more classic brands and opting for whatever ‘trendy’ option is being served. In this case, that means saluting the unsung hero of The Wizard of Oz, even injecting a heart. And speaking of hearts, the trenches of my insides go out to a certain pair of sunglasses best described as fly. They are so puntastic it’s offensive.

    I'm a sucker for metallic shoes….even if they are sneakers (though I never make it to the gym. Correction:these shoes are not meant to be worn in a gym) so yes I'd definately wear them! As for the sunglasses, wish I had the guts. I admire you.

    I've spent about three weeks trying to decide which colour superga's to get for this summer before I finally settled on burgundy. Now my whole world has been turned upside down with the thought of silver and tanned legs… Brilliant.

    Love your stuff!

    Love the sneakers, love the sunglasses. Since I really need a new pair of sneakers (and you've never got enough shoes, ofcourse), and I just fell in love with these, well… You can guess my thoughts.

    I went to Coachella last week! I hope you enjoy yourself. And to think that at the time I was complaining about the cold weather… I'm sorry for the scorching weather! However, since most of the best bands play at night anyways, I guess it's not too bad and is the perfect temperature then!
