In Which I Interview

Leandra Medine | July 19, 2012

…myself. And subsequently dodge most of the questions that I am asking me.

…Myself. And subsequently dodge most of the questions that I am asking myself. This video was created by and first aired on Imagine Fashion, the new window into window fashion, yesterday. Clothing credits as follows–on Man Repeller: Junya Watanabe jacket, Kain tank, Aurelie Bidermann, MR. Dannijo, Vivienne Westwood and Iosseliani necklaces, Acne jeans, Rag & Bone sunglasses. There are furry shoes too but you can’t see them, it’s tragic. On Leandra: 3.1 Phillip Lim blouse, Rag & Bone pants, Jenni Kayne flats, Warby Parker eyeglasses and it must be said: conjuring this particular outfit was no easy feat. Interesting to think how individual one’s comfort zone can be. In this case: horse hair > white cotton. That’s a fashematical problem.

  • Ursula Braeger

    I have to say that you kill me. You have such a fresh and funny take on fashion and our business. So many people pretend to be something they are not and you are so real. Thank you!

  • JFotang

    lol! God i love you! …and i love your sprinkler! haha priceless
    aannnnddd i’m definitly going to use those quotes:
    “if it feels wrong, it looks right”
    “if it looks like a vagina, it’s probably couture”
    …that is so special. hahahah
    waay to go girl! You have lead a whole cult of man repellers!

  • Law Moda

    ridiculous. love it.

  • china_eyez1

    So funny…Don’t worry I’ll touch your leg! Also the way you describe the jeans….genius!

  • VotreAmie

    Damn you, you SLAY ME! That was fan-effing-tabulous. Incredible awkward pauses and spectacularly witty banter between you and yourself. Brava! “Labial-folds” may be my favorite comment in there, but I can’t commit to a favorite just yet. 

  • Guest

    I am not exaggerating even the tinniest bit when I say that this video totally made my day. If you’re actually reading this comment and the deep, deep wants of your die-hard fans means anything to you, you should show more of Leandra. That is of course if Man Repeller’s ego would allow to share the spotlight.

    • Leandra

       It’s a hard life we live, me and Man Repeller. Always fighting for attention and shit.

  • JenniJP

    I have never laughed so hard! You are TOO stinkin hilarious…..

  • Debbie

    Omg, this just made my day. Again!


  • Miami

    All I see is a blue screen.  Is this video meant to be conceptual? :(

  • Unterhosen

    Oh for God’s sake, we’ll touch your leg…or at least the hem of your muff!

  • June

    do you want to touch my leg?

  • Margarida Reis

    hahaha. so funny!

  • Carlyanne

    Oh my goodness could not stop laughing!! You are the BEST.

  • Sonja

    Just had a really good laugh on that. I love your take on fashion and humor!

  • Vanessa Hong

     you are like the georgia o’keeffe of fashion. YOU. IN. A. NUT. SHELL.

    • Leandra

       I want to take this and frame it

  • Heike Kitsch

    It is definitely the best (self)interview video I’ve seen in a long, long time! Great work. Also, I really liked your non-comfort zone look. It’s quite close to my own aesthetics. I imagine I’d feel so weird in Junya Watanabe’s jacket (no matter how awesome and cool and hip and awesome again it looks on you)…. :-) Hello from London!

  • Cristina

    If you really did publish essays about periods and virginity, then I really am gonna love it. That shit is gold.

  • carey

  • marialandia

    I was watching this in the same room where my hubby and sister-in-law were watching TV and reading online respectively, and at one moment both of them asked me: “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WATCHING?”. Hahaha!

  • Hannah Xu

    I  nerver  see that awkward face on you! So funny! XD

  • Luckyrae22

    I laughed throughout the whole thing. Lost your period… pregnant? 

  • Cj

    I feel like I talk to myself all the time but it’s not for the purpose of entertainment.  Whatever, it’s not a big deal. Yes it is.  No it isn’t. Yes it is.  


  • Abbey

    I’m still laughing. And it’s been 5 minutes since I watched it. I vote for the Man Repeller reality show. All in favor say “touch my leg.”

    Along Abbey Road

  • Helena

    Love you. My dad was watching a video about dinosaurs, and he was like “what the hell are you laughing at?!.” “If it looks like a vagina, it’s probably couture.”
