My idea of enduring Olympic spirit 2012 is first and foremost, likening female swimmers’ upper bodies to Balmain shoulder pads. Following that, a look into the merchandising of various London-based web boutiques. The process isn’t very Olympic on surface level, not very much on an existential level either. Regardless, here’s what I learned while looking at London based boutique, Brown’s Fashion’s site: Thai women with Anna Wintour/Dora the Explorer hybrid haircuts are greater than us, and have really compelling names. Especially when spoken out loud, like Moo Piyasombatkul, for instance, enter her eponymous eye-wear brand: Moo.
Yes, it’s the cow’s moo.
They seem to specialize in reintroducing the stimulation fashion once depicted, now just sort of somewhat grazes. It’s kind of like that “fuck, why didn’t I think of that” moment when you step into the notion of accessorizing an accessory as simple as your sunglasses. Is there any good reason you haven’t yet added pearly worm like figures to your rims? I can’t get past the quirky accents. They’re reminiscent of the Spring McQueen shades but just a little less…frilly, girly, Midsummer, shaka laka. I am fairly keen on this pair, a set that ensures if you didn’t have a uni-brow, you do now.
More so, however on the pair photographed first. On the one hand, they’re a glimpse at what would be George Wipple’s eyebrows had he lived on the North Pole. On the other, seamen, again here, I’m not talking about boat pros. It’s kind of like John Lennon took care of a looming erection and the end of said erection resulted in a release that landed just above his shades. It dried, thus creating a very interesting and thought provoking…set of accoutrements to adorn his ubiquitous frames. Maybe, just maybe, it’s the Something About Mary fashion equivalent.
The sunglasses are far easier to digest in GBP formation. In dollars, they range from a cool $450 to $550 and while that’s certainly no stipend, there’s something to be said about investing in the flourishing creativity of a young artist. Still, they’d probably make for an interesting DIY endeavor, One I’d likely leave only to the ladies of Honestly, WTF.
Personally, I love the sunglasses. They’re original and interesting–very clearly made with love, good conversation starters at very least. But it’s tough to digest such a hefty price tag. The fact of the matter is, they’ll probably endure more use than our favorite high heeled shoes, see: Charlotte Olympia seashells, so why the cloudy restraint?
But what’s that?
Tell me what you think, I have to know. Lam ba da.
