Trimapee 2012 / Strong Undulation

I love this trans-seasonal brand - TRIMAPEE , from Melbourne! I can relate to them so much since our clothing line- Paradigm Shift isn't defined by seasons like them. I was purely into this whole drapey-undulating-layering formula before and now, I think , I'm going back. Thanks to Trimapee for the awakening! The lookbook is entitled Comatose by the way. Actually this lookbook summarizes my style so much. The drapey + lean black legs + ankle booties brings the nostalgic air!

I see Helmut Lang's spirit in their pieces... but of course, each designer weaves a different story. I love them

Mother weather leather

The smell of genuine leather amuses me! I woke up today with the aroma of these boots and the soft gushing wind penetrating my dusty window (allergic rhinitis fack off!). It was kept inside a box but I guess my mom opened it while I was sleeping. You know, mothers! They rummage your room and your closet hoping to find a fresh shirt with price tag or a fresh receipt from Zara. In the office , the smell of shoes, gum soles and leather adhere in my body. The taste is delightful. I've read from a Science book that taste is 70% smell and 30% taste. So if you're job involves cleaning toilets and urinals, you are a very strong guy! How i wish genuine leathers are as cheap as gummy bears! Btw, the boots aren''t mine!

RAD Hourani x JOYCE

Rad Hourani released a 10 piece collection exclusive for Hongkong-based store - Joyce , to celebrate 5 successful years in the industry. The limited collection's pieces come in 3 colors including transformable vests, jackets and silver printed shirts that reflect the essence of Rad Hourani's signature designs... I was appalled to see the silver shirt. Our clothing line , Paradigm Shift, created something like the one Rad did and I felt good inside. It's as if a clairvoyance happened between us.

"I'm not a designer , I'm not an artist, I'm not a photographer, I'm not a film-maker . I'm everything together. I don't categorize myself..." - Rad H.

"Once you try to revive something, it's already dead. What I see in fashion today is not new. I see 80's, 50's , 20's , 90's. Everything is recycled. Fashion can be extremely boring. It's like this trend machine making money and I think it's going nowhere. At the end of the day, you must be detached from all of this."

"I always sketch straight and symmetrical forms. It's almost like a 90 degree thing. You will never see any stitching lines or buttons on my drawings. Everything is hidden."

"I used to shop in the women's section because I liked the fabrics but I didn't like the shapes. Then I went to the men's dept and there I found the shapes I liked but not the fabrics. I think i was looking for something that wasn't there. I realized afterwards that this something I was looking for was actually me."

"I don't stop myself at someone's nationaliity, gender or sexuality. I think it's important to have an open mind, observe everything and take that's relevant."
