Something possessed me, and I bought the Celine fur Birkenstock-style sandals, or FURKENSTOCKS. They're not exactly beautiful, and they could hardly be less practical, and yet...
Actually, there's no deep explanation. I'm a victim of the zeitgeist, and had been itching to get my hands on some of Phoebe Philo's Celine, without doing a Kanye and wearing a blouse or doing a blogger and mincing around with a handbag. Furthermore, I've always loved a fashion gimmick (things like the £2,000 Chanel bag fashioned after a Chinese takeaway box) but normally they're confined to items of womenswear which, unlike the FURKENSTOCKS, can't be passed off as menswear even remotely. It's postmodernism and shit.
They're a bit mesmerising. I think it's all the tension in the design: the odd contrast between the clumpy sandal and the fur. Feet on fur has got to be a fetish. I took some pictures wearing them barefoot but they looked like they belonged on a "specialist" website.
Love my awful Nike tourist bag. Great for stashing meds on the go!
And speaking of Nike, the AirMax 2013's which I customised with NikeID (all in black, naturally) arrived at last:
Wearing with Rick Owens DRKSHDW cropped parka:
I'm getting more and more into slightly cyborg-y sportswear design. Really want a Nike FuelBand - for the 90s-futuristic aesthetic, not for health purposes, OBVS.
This RO jacket is one of my most worn items. I think it's FW10 season?
This sums up what I think about fashion at the moment:
Edit: also love the fur-on-top ones which Jayne (STOPITRIGHTNOW) got
