What do you guys think about (allegedly) Marxist fashion designers like Carol christian Powell?
It's the first time I hear of this but considering he once said he intentionally makes his leather clothes as painful and uncomfortable as possible it sort of makes sense.
is this a pun on CCP
>>37364>My father died this year so I’ve been thinking a lot about mortality. He was a very confrontational man, very analytical. He liked putting people into a corner intellectually — it was a form of bullying. He could be so critical of the way people live their lives and in the end he became very bitter. I never had the chance to ask him why he, after all those years of thinking, couldn’t find serenity. He wasn’t able to negotiate the ending of his life in a graceful way. He was so observant, and he believed in being a resolved human being — someone who thinks correctly — and still he never managed to make peace with the fact that he was dying. It made me think about the world and about how to find graceful ways to deal with threats. That’s what I would like to do. I’d like to end up in a garden with a wall around it, reading and playing with kittens. That’s probably the best I can hope for. I’m not going to have grandchildren. Well, I guess in a way I will because I surround myself with people, and some are having children. I love seeing babies around. So I suppose I will have the comfort of being in a garden and playing with kittens and babies. I don’t know what could possibly be better than that.
This hit hard :(
You should really cross dress if you're going to burn a lot cash. Men's clothes realistically are still kinda ugly after 400ish dollars.
being overly critical while being a dipshit yourself is a very unfortunate quality
Most high end fashion (excluding traditional gendered formal wear like fancy suits and dresses) is unisex anyways.
I'm here to find extremely toxic ways to express my masculinity, stop trying to make fashion gay
Fashion is inherently gay/feminine
what do you mean? we've been wearing clothes since the beginning of time, before gay even existed.
What's gay/feminine today was literally the norm for men not many centuries ago.
sadly being gay or a woman doesnt inherently make you look good
I'd agree if my favorite designers' lines for women weren't too ridicuously small for me, and I'm a skinny lanklet!
Best most retarded comment ITT.
Keep dressing like a moron.
> Stop buying reps, it funds terrorism and human trafficking.
burger redditors are fucking hilarious
on the topic of le ethical consumption and clothing, that annoying menswear guy on twitter is always talking about "consumer power", jesus
> Part of the reason why this exploitation happens is because consumers want clothes for as little as $10 or $20.
liberalism is a brain disease
Apparently all of inditex factories in Bangladesh are on strike with strong police repression.
I have the opposite problem cause I’m a 5’11” guy with a 23” waist so pretty much all standard men’s clothing just makes me look like a rectangle, which is fine for a layered or oversized fit but looks shit elsewise. Unisex works well though
Where did I say that it’s bad that it’s inherently feminine? I still love fashion, I just recognize what it is instead of coping
In the history and present of gender theory, femininity consistently demonstrates a societal predilection towards beauty, appearance, and fashion by proxy. There have never been societies wherein obsession with fashion and appearance was categorized as ostensibly masculine, yet there have been endless societies where it’s considered obviously feminine/effeminate in theory and practice.
To clarify, fashion is not “genetically” inherently feminine/effeminate, but societally inherent. And That’s not a bad thing, but a fact as of now nonetheless, so trying to purport it’s actually super alpha male to worry about what pretty cloth your wearing is dumb and likely only reflexively said out of internalized homophobia.
I had an argument with him once and he unironically thinks liberalism and capitalism are separate phenomena and that capitalism emerged from liberalism
, like we literally willed it into existence or something. People always throw the term idealism around here a lot but this is actually a great example of it. Big pseud who should only stick to dissing neocons for their clothes instead of pretending he knows a thing about political or economic theory, but he can't help but still comment on them anyway.
I think what they're getting at is that it's silly to claim fashion is "inherently" feminine or gay just because cis men say so, especially when most designers are straight men. Even looking at the history of fashion the last century the only trend you could attribute to women/gays is skinny jeans? Maybe?
>trying to purport it’s actually super alpha male to worry about what pretty cloth your wearing is dumb
Doubt anyone here will disagree with your main point, but I think "positive stereotypes" are dumb too.
>>37403>yet there have been endless societies where it’s considered obviously feminine/effeminate in theory and practice
What? It wasn't until the French Revolution.
After the French Revolution, in France men being into fashion was seen as part of the old nobility and therefore bad. And France set fashion for the western world. So the western world adopted the idea that men should not be into fashion.
Then in the the late 19th century, anglo puritanism put the final nail in the coffin.
as an nb i never felt right identifying as male but watching his shows made me feel like i could have been a male in rick's world, idk
dude, I hope you get the medical attention you need. that's fucking insane>>37403>internalized homophobia
thanks doc for diagnosing me with your pop psychology. let me know if you're free later, we can chat some more, maybe play some sarcasticaball>>37407
I'd give it a go>>37409
identity is also a kind of fashion, especially the kind you're trafficking in
>>37412>identity is also a kind of fashion, especially the kind you're trafficking in
wut>>37389>Fashion is inherently gay/feminine
That’s literally just how I’m built, I don’t think I need medical attention. I’m only slightly underweight (131lbs) for my height, and feel healthy.
Yeah, BMI isn't really a useful metric.
Yeah shit sucks. Having a really small waist and large hip-to-waist/shoulder-to-waist ratio is the dream body most women want for themselves, but having it as a cis guy means absolutely nothing unless you’re brave enough to wear cropped midriff / tight tops in public and almost definitely be called slurs.
so like a bodybuilder? what about heavily tapered tops?
>Until recently, fashion was considered the "F-word" in intellectual circles, dismissed as unworthy of serious attention. Yet no area of life, no individual moment, stands outside fashion's discourses. Intuitively, we all know that clothing is a language, incessantly communicating messages about its wearer. But who speaks this language, to whom is it addressed, what does it mean, and how are its meanings established and transformed? On Fashion explores the ways our material, political, psychological, sexual, even intellectual lives are woven into fashion's fabric.>This stimulating collection of essays explores fashion's symbolic and figurative functions in photography, cinema, and video; in consumerism, postmodernism, and feminism; in political and material culture; and in self-definition and subjectivity. They demonstrate the pervasive reach of fashion and its expressions.
>>37427>like a bodybuilder?
Proportion wise I guess?
but having a wide waist/obliques but even larger muscular shoulders is extremely different than a tiny waist and thin but broad shoulders.
I assume he's going to try and burn that in the shower (safe spot to try) or flush it down the toilet (bad idea), but that monstrosity does deserve to be destroyed.
What year is that from
Oh cool social media leeches have found out about 14th Addiction so prices are already going through the roof for what was very affordable Japanese clothes.
itll look like shit but i guess itll suit the worn down look
People with an irrational aversion to synthetic fabrics because they believe you can absorb microplastics directly from the clothes you're wearing and then buy the shittiest flimsiest roughest cotton out there are funny.
I think blogs are the way to go with that, but idk any.
what are you talking about
im quoting a reddit thread where a redditor whos a model went to an audition wearing fake clothes of the designer he was auditioning for
Why are you going on reddit silly
That is probably the least unpopular opinion you could have
I thought it was widely criticized for being "unhealthy" or whatever. Someone in this very thread got called out just for being thin.
arent skinny clothes considered "boomer shit" these days
If you wear them and they make your legs look like sausages, then yes.
Patina on clothes made with quality fabrics is so sexy.
I hate the rapper hype boom, shit used to be actually affordable before.
Is it reactionary I like wearing suits? I unironically want to look fancy in an office all day and go to lounges afterwards to drink Tom Collins and call women cutesy shit like doll, or sugar.
Jesus, I'm jealous.
Sometimes I see people online posting their thrift finds and it's stuff like fucking Yohji for under 10 bucks.
Marni got boring in the last years but the collab with Uniqlo was pretty good, at least women's.
thrift stores are only filled with good stuff in the us because of their squandering culture all i ever find where i live is whatever first worlders didnt snatch first in their own thrift stores :(
Anyone have experience guinea pigging reps on pandabuy? What’s the odds imma get scammed
What do you mean guinea-pigging? Pandabuy and all other agents will show you pictures of the product once it arrives to their warehouse so you can check if everything is in order.
I just mean buying something from a source with 0 reviews or sales
If you ever get fucked your agent should be able to contact taobao to get your money back, I think.
Nothing about society is inherent you theorylet. You're arguing metaphysical positions instead of thinking dialectially about fashion. Under primitive communism and in the transition to clan society men and women equally decorated themselves. Early class societies like the Minoan exhibit this. It is only after capitalist society codifies gendered norms to enforce patriarchy that we associate inherently
(as you put it) fashion with femininity or queerness. Once we abolish capitalism also fashion loses the shackles of capitalist society and is aufgehoben to socialist fashion. It will become one of the main points of communist society, since as Marx put it
>As a result, therefore, man (the worker) only feels himself freely active in his animal functions – eating, drinking, procreating, or at most in his dwelling and in dressing-up, etc.; and in his human functions he no longer feels himself to be anything but an animal. What is animal becomes human and what is human becomes animal.
I’ve run into the problem recently of realizing a lot of creatives talk a lot and are truly emotionally intelligent people but don’t really do much of the things they say they do.
Bro I’m so sick of “dark avant-garde” designers a lot of the shit is just gratuitous edginess disguised as being subversive. Some vaguely rich artist highlighting the “darker elements of life 😈”? Ok pal
It’s always some variation of something McQueen, Rick or CCP did without fail. If not that then it’s some shock value shit
That many pairs of ricks is embarrassing
same tbh, counterculture has been almost entirely subverted by regular culture, very little stands out in the dark fashion space, whether that be high end or street wear brands like FTP, shit is just edgy for the sake of edgy, selling rebellion to placate the masses.
Finding a cool t-shirt and realizing the main graphic is on the back.
Who even makes shirts like that? Everyone knows that the back is for the tour dates.
Is that Baudrillard?
Furthermore skirts on guys like that pic should be normalized, it’s the next step for baggy styles
3 Cons>Items in pockets are allowed to swing all over the place>Difficult to run or climb in>More likely to get caught on random things
3 Pros>Breaks up the human shape>Better for temperature regulation at higher temperatures>Easier to hide things underneath
How 2 women's fashion when poor
I want 2 slay
whenever i thrift theres always an overabundance of women clothes as opposed to mens
Get some fashion reps
the communist imagery is cringe but those pieces look good otherwise
Just rip off the front pocket and you're golden.>but it's le backwards
Cool, normalize wearing t-shirts backwards.
all brands are nazi brands, who cares, you dont believe in voting with your wallet do you? and you should buy second hand anyway
Asos is having a black Friday sale. Not sure what to get. I'm kind of short in cash, I'll browse around and see if something catches my eye.
The issue is that I'm not quite sure what I want my styles to look like. I need a normal weekend style, a club style, an office work style, a workout clothes style. Right now I have clothes I've had for a decade, and new stuff too. It's all a mishmash.
Then there's shit I need to buy asap, like I urgently need new every day shoes. I'm thinking of buying some black Nike's, they're so fucking expensive though. I also need some gloves but I'm thinking of buying the ones at the supermarket.
why do people even get fake normie luxury bags its literally just thief bait
Cause it’s cheap so if someone steals it who cares
https://www.russh.com/rick-owens-moncler-interview/>With the rise of AI, the fashion industry is undergoing a transformation in the way products are designed. What is your stance in AI?<It is ominous, creepy and inevitable. All of my favourite things.
The rep community is so fucking retarded.
>accurate imitation of intricate piece down to the materials but there's no tags, 0/10
>paper-thin cheap cotton shit with accurate logo and tags, 10/10
its insane how obvious the difference is in pocket sizes between women’s pants and men’s pants
If you want to go monochromatic, the more attention to detail is required. Cut, drape, texture, features, etc, all become more important than they normally would since mix'n'matching creates visual interest on its own.
