Often people don’t understand when I say that my main inspiration source is the men on the streets or mistake my affection with my tendency to dress like a boy most of the time. I guess now is the best time to try to show them why, not just because menswear fashion month just kicked off but also because it’s the dead of winter and everybody, I mean EVERYBODY, is looking for something to be inspired by and honestly womenswear is not a great source on that journey.
There is at least 10cm snow or a thin block of ice on the shoveled pavements and we celebrate it as though it’s summer time when it’s over -10 so excuse me for not getting anything from women in high heeled boots or worse, all in down coats, skinny jeans and Sorels. I need layering, I need oversized coats, I need combat boots, I need sweaters and I need the beautiful tailoring of pants. So, let me ask that question: If there’s something cold in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?
