men will be men








– The world is full of guys. Be a man.

A few style icons that inspire Mr Porter. Funny thing is I haven't even looked at the clothes they have in store, everything else is so much more exciting. Mr Porter is making a science out of everything, I miss that insightfulness, tradition and formality when it comes to the way women's dressing and clothes are being presented to the consumer.

Bi se Marcello Mastroianni danes res odločil za Burberry obleko in bi od Guccija vzel le srajco in sončna očala? Johnny v zdelanih Rick Owens kavbojkah in Balmain bulerjih, Belmondo s tistim debelim cigaretom in Acne srajco. Basquiat v Paul Smith obleki z živahno podlogo, Paul v James Perse T-majici in Band of Outsiders činosih, Mick v A.P.C. džins srajci in Lock & Co klobučku. Mala lekcija iz moškosti se nadaljuje, kako odpreti ostrigo je na vrhu seznama. Oh, gospod in gospa Porter.

ms porter

I am feeling very manly right now. And also very Fantastic. The Net-a-Porter hubby Mr Porter is very much like a living-breathing Fantastic Man. It has so many references. I guess men love to read. And dress-up. And be a clash between Mr Ford and Mr Sartorialist. (But I do hate the ad space, the word Stylepedia, and Man & Boy is a bit, pardon my French, gay.) Let the grooming begin.

Le kdo bo prvi v Sloveniji, ki mu bo dhl dostavil to tako popolno škatlo?

these shoes were made for stalkin'

So Jane aka Sea of Shoes isn't impressed with this season Prada shoes. All other men and women on the planet love this daring take on brogues.

Naj kar takoj povem, da se z njimi nisem šla pepelke, občudovala sem jih od daleč kot fanta za šankom. Njihova tortasta narava združuje vse čevlje, ki jih moški potrebuje, in torej tudi ženski pridejo prav: klasične churchaste, superge in espadrile (le kako se zaradi te plasti razumejo z dežjem?). Zveni strašno, a je videti odlično, zelo Prada, skratka.

i am back (and forth)

Dan Perjovschi in Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong
Well, don't get too excited, I haven't done Buddha.

Šele ko sem bila nekaj dni tam, mi je kapnilo, da je to polbritiš polkitajsko mesto Alexa Chung in jaz v njem Urša Chung. Hong Kong je bil moja prva azijska afera. Kot vampirka Dunstova, sveže rdeča okrog ust, že ves dan šepetam: I want some more!

Ars Vivendi No. 16, DEC 1992,  photographer: Franci Virant, styling and makeup: Lena Pislak, clothes: Leo Kulaš.
Ars Vivendi was a cult Slovenian fashion magazine produced and read by the bold and the beautiful in the '80s and early '90s. If I am not mistaken it even had an international distribution and of course its very own brand Pro Ars Vivendi with ready-to-wear collections and a perfume. Since I couldn't be a part of it then and there, I am trying to capture some of the mood with a scan of a crisp grungy editorial of good girls gone a little bit bad.

Madrid, pomlad, se mi zdi, da 2004. Na zabavi, ki se je že naslednje jutro v maniri Široko zaprtih oči preoblekla v hotel neštetih soban, srkam gin, se dolgočasim in najbrž govorim z zelo globokim h-jem, za hip stopim na eno izmed plesišč, postanem, moja ušesa preklopijo na mute. Spustim roko proti torbici, zadrga je razprta, denarnica je ušla, ušla, ušla. Kaj mi mar osebna in drobiž, jaz hočem nazaj mojo majhno usnjeno, ker je vijolična in ker je poslednja Ars Vivendi denarnica. To je bil moj edini AV kos. Zdaj listam vintidž Ars Vivendi številke in se učim. O, glej, Blažka in Rohmer. Pa bulerji in čisto sveže srajčne bluze.
