The promise

I started this blog about a month ago (on tumbler) and it was born out of a need to write. Write what? Well fashion. To create, to make, to just talk about fashion as a whole. Where I live its repressive, hetronormative would be a proper word to describe it. The ideal man, masculine, strong,handsome, fashion-less. The ideal women, Feminine, stylish, sexy, dumb. I'm a mixture of those two. I don't prescribe to a social construct, gender. I believe in the mixture of fashion, the gender-less view. A world where the idea of man and women doesn't exist. It's just clothes. Fashionable clothes. Sexy clothes. Wonderful clothes. BLACK clothes!
But lately this view, a view untainted by the world around me has started to collapse. Social pressure, within my family, and the setting in which I live have destroyed my idealistic goth like world. A fantasy, which by the waring of man wedges, toppled over.
So now where am I? I'm siting in my room, staring at this photo, a photo of a group of wonderfully dressed people. Each one representing in a way or another, my style, my fashion, who I am.

So here I am, and there is only way I can go. Forward. So today, right now, starts this blog. The style outsider, a blog about the gender-less fashion view. A blog about what happens when you stray from color, what happens, when you meet black. It'll take a while for my style to grow and form. But in that time, it will be a journey. A journey in to a world of Rick Owens, GARETH PUGH, Acne, Dior, Comme Des Garcons, RODARTE, ect. A world full of designers, style Icons, Gareth Pugh, fantastic clothes, Gareth Pugh, ect. Gareth Pugh. Goodnight!

A Needed Pick Me Up

The last few days of my life have been hard. It was the first week of school, I got no sleep and as a whole and I just miss summer. I miss the warmth of the sun, the summer breeze, and sleep! Oh sleep, how I miss you!
So in my own need for mental and physical sanity I decided to do the one thing that always makes me happy... What is that you ask? Well its simply me making a nice cup of hot chocolate and looking at Gareth Pugh. (In my opinion, one of the greatest designers of our time)
Gareth Pugh, an England native, creates more then a collection, he creates art. He takes simple cloth and creates new and entirely groundbreaking garments. Gareth creates shapes, textures, and fabrics that in gray, black, and white create more emotional depth then any thing I have ever seen before. He along with Alexander McQueen (may he rest in piece), Rodarte (Oh the beauty that is Rodarte), and Rick Owens (No explanation needed) define my own little style world.
All in all, at the end of a long day, tired, restless, and usually sad and annoyed its nice to come home and stare at Gareth Pugh's aw inspiring collections.
I had been attempting to pick a collection to show, or one picture, but I can't. There all to fantastic, so here are is a lookbook esc video showing his recent fall winter 2010 collection. So much leather so little time. (also if you are against the showing of boobies, you might not want to click.... Just putting that out there now).

The Exodus

After starting my small not so important blog I decided to finally make the switch to blogger. I hope we can have a nice romance, Mr. Blogger. I'm just your typical fifteen year old fashion loving, gender fluid, boy. Here is to blogging!
