I didn't think I could do it but I've been succesfully avoiding wearing all-black outfits for weeks now.
Another shade I rocked recently is purple and thanks to this Cacharel jacket I scored from Japan Thrift Shop which anchored the look. I paired it with an ube-esque tank, also an ukay find, which reminded me of an Eairth piece I saw in their workshop. The purplish Calvin Klein jeans was also a JapanTS find. Man, the things I find there. I'm actually itching to go again since I heard they've got a huge new shipment opened recently.
Oh, I think the red Topman belt and Muji sneakers somehow makes it a little bit interesting. A sartorial flair, if you may. I'd like to think it's very Dries Van Noten-ish, non?
I really love the plaid and wrinkly texture of the jacket.
The label, I'm guessing, was during the Clements Ribeiro years. Other designers who helmed the label includes Esther Angula and the prints genius husband&wife team Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto. Suzanne Clements & Inacio Ribeiro are also a couple. Today the collection is designed by an in-house team.
For the look, I decided to use this tiny Prada backpack find at, where else?, Japan TS. Me got it for $1, can you believe? I guess my look reminded me of college although it's far from the all-black, Helmut Lang-ish looks I've really worn back then. Maybe I would style some nerdy college type with this look, lol! Just add some rounded spectacles to complete the look, non?
I was dreaming of a Prada backpack in college coz the only thing I can afford was this blue knock-off. Mind you, Prada wasn't popular when I was in college and so was Helmut Lang so nobody did really understand my obsession with those labels except for my friend Faith who was into Calvin Klein minimalism when everybody was still stuck in their 80's duds. Everyone was into Jansport and Eastpak.
