See some clothes, buy some clothes–or don’t, it’s your life.

“The great thing about contemporary wear is that everything is contemporary!” Look, if I don’t quote me, no one else will, and that will never bode well with what happens to me posthumously. Here is one of like, five videos that I shot in honor of the looming clothing collaboration that has just officially dropped across the Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Shopbop websites.

I’ve been working on this collection for a pretty long time and it occurred to me post “design” process that it must feel considerably odd for real designers to see their mental objects come to tangible fruition at least six months post inception. I guess that’s why the internet win at efficiency, right? We think what we what, say it when we want and watch the world react almost instantaneously. But I digress, I do hope you enjoy the offerings from shipment one of the three part series (you just wait for them overalls and fruity pockets). I for one, am rather partial toward the graphic tees (holla at my uniCORN), wide leg shorts and silk maxi skirts.

Mermaids are awesome.

      And the money….honey.

  • B.

    I saw your collection for the first time in the closet I was freelancing in. I loved it then, I love it more now that its attainable, and I will love it even more when I’m wearing that gold look down the street and i am impatiently waiting those overalls!

    Love these pieces. They’re not just stylish, they feel authentic, an extension of your personality, and that’s what gives it that extra umph!!! Congrats…

  • Natashia

    Actually love every one of those outfits.. And your hair! Arrgghh.. I’m going to the bathroom with scissors now. To cut my hair that is…

    Either I’m going insane and seeing SNL references where there are none, or you’ve been searching through old episodes for caption inspiration.
    But then again, what do I know? Whatever, it’s your life, do what you want, I’m not the police.

    • Leandra Medine

      I do not exist without SNL. So what? Who cares?

  • isabelle

    so cool outfits. I really enjoy your blog.

    Great! love every piece specially the wide shorts with the same blouse fabric, can’t stop watching the video #Amazing!

  • Stacy

    you are so cool! Like your blog and by the way, there is a mention of you and your blog in February issue Marie Claire Ukraine ;)

  • Greer Clarke

    I actually like this video most because it makes the clothes more real. I feel a lot more inclined to buy them now I’ve seen them in action. Go Leandra! Repel Repel Repel!

  • Savannah Jual

    You have such an electric energy. It’s contagious, and totally empowering. Plus you’re wearing such rad clothes. How did you get this….you?

    Tell me your secrets.

    I love it. Gosh dammit you are awesome.

  • Melissa Ulloa

    AWESOME!

  • erica wright

    I love this!! The great thing about TMR is we have followed the same persona from you since day one, no matter how big the collaboration or how big your blog grows you have never changed who you are and how you act. It’s so refreshing to see especially when most bloggers just stand still straight faced with no emotion on every single ‘what i’m wearing’ post and its exhaustingly boring!! And completely adds to not knowing who they are nor anything interesting about their personality. I feel like i knowww know you Leandra!! Pandas et all.
    Long live TMR.

    Love all of the items in this video! Funny and cool video too ;) xx

  • nat

    Love the collection, but I must say I was extremely confused by the bustier. Like, really? It’s glorified hooker chic at best, totally goes against your mantra and didn’t seem to fit with the rest of the collection. I’m sure it’s there to layer but in saying that, I’m finding it hard to mentally mellow it, even with a collared shirt and about three jackets.

    • Alleyco

      she do what she want, brah.

  • Shesnokitten

    Good job kiddo

  • Alice

    I tried really hard to like it but… I just thought the collection is very weak and unremarkable… You are better at transforming clothes into unforgettable heart-stirring assembles than actually creating them

    • Emo 13 year old

      lol k hater!!!

      • Sophie

        I think Alice has a pretty valid opinion. I wish everyone would stop condemning anyone with criticism as a hater, its ‘s uncalled for.

        • Leandra Medine

          Yes! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and though I really appreciate the defense, Alice conveyed her POV very, very respectfully.

    • Ruby

      Alice, I feel the same to some degree, looking online nothing stands out, but in saying that everything in the video looks much better and I personally think the stronger pieces aren’t in stores yet.

    • AvraG

      I unfortunately feel the same. Sorry. But continue you’re writing. Love to read you.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jennylovelee Jenny Kaleidoscopic Lee

      I was really looking forward to pieces that stood out on its own and just screamed independent style or just unique and fun. However, all the pieces that I see on the PJK site that I see all just seem too generic. Pretty but generic. I also expected to see more colors. Clearly the best pieces haven’t hit the stores yet cause I really did love the gold jacket/shorts and the banana graphic tee

    • Lilli

      I personally love it! Who wouldn’t want a banana on their tit?

  • XeanaFashion

    Productive cooperation. I wish you good sales

    What is the song playing in the video? You’re awesome by the way! ;)

        Do you know which song specifically? I’ve been trying to look it up but had no luck!!

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Winky-Mc-Butters/1239715059 Winky Mc Butters

          I’m pretty sure it’s off of their debut.

  • Mia

    The collection is very plain. I guess it’s OK for layering but even in the video I don’t see you layering much? I like the video and your silly dancing, but that’s about it. The gold shorts-suit look is pretty nice, though!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=591700378 Evelyn Irvin

    Love it!!! You’re so darn cute!!!

  • Ann

    I think the collection is lovely, however (and understandably) designed for your own body shape. I haven’t worn shorts since I was 19 and the skirt is way too short. But the pixie blouse might be nice for work. Anyway, you’re adorable :-)

  • Alleyco

    congratulations! Man Reppeller 4 eva

  • Sean

    Omg I’m totally obsessed and I was just wondering when will those fruity pocket tees (god they’re flawless) be available? :D Love from Singapore! xx

  • http://madamecouture.blogspot.com/ Emma Hager

    is that dino phone case up for grabs? It’s very vintage and in I love it very much.

    2nd paragraph: “We think what we want”, instead of the ‘what’ you wrote.

  • Dounia

    Beautiful creations! I especially love the Pixie Hollow Dress. Bravo!
    I’ve read that PJK does not ship to France……….. Boo hoo, ME SO SAD!!!!!!!!

  • STYLE-SQUARED

    OK HERE IS THE DEAL: YOU ARE CERTIFIABLY CRAZY, YOU REALLY NEED TO WEAR A BRA AND MOST OF THE CLOTHES IS PRETTY AWESOME!!!!

    • Leandra Medine

      But I don’t *want* to wear a bra!!

      • ni ni

        I hardly ever wear a bra. Comfort and confetttii everywhere!!!

    The whle thing is so you and that fact make me wanna buy everything!
    But of course there is no shipping to Greece, we are in Europe not Narnia.
    Falling more in love with the MR as a general concept and blog.

    I love the prints. The Unicorn tee immediately reminded me of Doe Deere from Lime Crime! Hmmm maybe Man Repeller should dabble in cosmetics? *nudge nudge*

    I cannot wait for the overalls.

  • Chris

    The collection is so you, and that’s what is important. For people who don’t like it, then they should design their own clothes. Why not consider yourself a designer, though? If Jessica Simpson is allowed to call herself one, I think you qualify too.

    You are so adorable, Leandra! I love your silliness. I absolutely LOVE strawberries as well. They are my favorite food and I almost enjoy wearing them as much as I do devouring them. Cool collection.

    Vintage Sale $10 & Under!

  • Laura Ashton Barry

    I actually really like the cuts on all of these tops. I’m not really down with the skirts but being a girl who owns way too many pairs of jeans, I’m always looking for a super cute/fabulous/sexy top to make me feel a little special!
    http://Www.lauraashtonbarry.wordpress.com

  • Natasha

    I think the collection is good- whilst they may not all be pieces that we all want to buy, it is unmistakably you and true to the sense of style that you convey on this blog; which is great and refreshing as it would have been so easy to create items that are copies of what brands have put out already or just in line with current trends. Also, i love the printed shorts!

  • Isa

    These shoes are the SHIT!

  • http://newbornfanatic.wordpress.com/ Newborn Fanatic
  • Becks

    I like the brocade looking short and jacket combo and the floral shorts.

  • Fabita Punk

    I always love watching videos about yourself…your silliness makes me happy :)

  • Tereza.
  • Melissa

    I love how simplistic the designs are; but then there’s this punch to them, like a crazy print, or unexpected ruffles. I think it’s a nice collection!

  • ntabibian

    what is this song called?

  • WEAR TO CLICK

    We’re digging it and shared it with our audience today!! http://weartoclick.com/manrepeller-patterson-j-kincaid-collaboration-shopbop/

  • Charlotte

    Is the white blouse part of the collection? And if so when?!

  • Christina Pippin

    I’m loving so many of these pieces. Those croc shorts. Yes. And the way they’re styled in the video. Yes and yes.

  • jane

    I dont love these pieces…… I LUV DEM!!!!!!!!!
