I always have been obsessed with architecture.
Anyone who can consistently reinvent the most basic of things and make them desirable deserves the title of ‘mastermind’. He really understands what women want nowadays. Which is to be comfortable while still feeling luxurious. Anyone who’s put on one of his T’s will know what I’m talking about. And I mean come on. After his most recent F/W show how can you deny he is anything but ahead of the game?
You are gravely missing the point. I’d rather see these so called ‘basic bitches’ in A. Wang over UGG boots and sweatpants any damn day.
Yohji Yamamoto Boutique in Antwerp, Belgium
Located in Mode Natie, the 19th century neo-classic building has been reincarnated into a white, high pillared space filled with a modern tone of tranquillity and multiple lightening modulations.
When you first enter, it’s a beautiful eerie silence of footsteps and the sound of floating clothes.That’s the reason we left the door open. The deeper you move through the boutique, the more acoustic insulation absorbs the sound to an ‘old library’ silence. Before taking the clothes to the fitting room to personally try on, it’s recommended to use your strength to take every piece of clothing, or lift up your arms and stand on your toes, or very politely bend over your waist; the display of these clothes are hanging on horizontal racks, or on display boards close to the floor, this is the best angle for appreciating Yohji Yamamoto’s clothing, and a test of the inclinations of freedom wearing Yohji Yamamoto on yourself.
In fact, it looks more like a museum than a boutique. A museum that provides light with clothes that provide shadow and comfort, between the noise of the city and the silence, between the sky and the floor, between yourself and the clothes.
And met an agent of Next Model Management and we became quite chummy. He goes ‘are you korean? The last Korean model we signed hung herself.’ I literally clutched my chest and breathed ‘Daul Kim!’ And he grabbed my hand and looked me in the eyes and said ‘oh we just bonded.’ Then proceeded in rolling his eyes declaring ‘Soo Joo has nothing on Daul. She’s what? With Wilhelmina or something?’ And does a fake hair flip.
Hey! First off, don’t push yourself to go out from the get go. If you have social anxiety forcing yourself into uncomfortable situations will only exacerbate the problem and you’ll never want to go out again. I suggest utilizing the people you do hang out with to start. If you get the opportunity to go to a party or show or what have you with them chances are their friends will be there as well. That way its still intimate and with people who have some sort of relevant connection to your life. I don’t suggest playing russian roulette with absolute strangers. Stick within your comfort zone but at the same time start stretching it little by little. Socializing is all about using the contacts that you do have and expanding from there. :)
Alexander Wang just announced his upcoming collaboration with H&M. Heaven and Hell will be emptied that day.
