Socks and Sandals

Hey! This is a quick post on what i consider to be a simple fashion debate that i seem to hear amongst our somewhat fashion conscious generation, for example my kid brothers- should we wear Socks and sandals?

its a combination of Summer and Winter, or Hot and Cold… Good versus Evil? N a h

Initially when i heard this phrase earlier in the year i automatically thought of the Nike Sliders with equally matched Nike Branded (usually white, sometimes black) Socks. However it seems ┬áthat the hashtag means something else. Socks and Sandals can be fun apparently – a mismatch of colours- patterns, materials all make what is actually an interesting look. Below i’m going to post my favourite images of the people who obviously don’t care – they are pretty cool.

 

love it

Freddie Harrel

Watching this video was really touching. Learning about Freddie and her experiences as school as a black girl in France really educated me on how many different people have different experiences with location and race. It even caused me to look at my own childhood and think about the way i was.

As the title reveals before she is a woman and before she is black she is Freddie! In the video she powerfully educates us on the topic of being true to yourself, self expression and not letting anyone tell you that your not beautiful.

Freddie Harrel you are fabulous. Thank you for sharing your story!

Proportion Proportion- ADER ERROR

WHO IS ADER ERROR?

I would describe them as a brand that enjoys communicating the ‘cool, nerdy schoolgirl/boy’ story repeatedly throughout the brands creative direction. In terms of proportion the way ┬áthey show their clothing is yet again another hint and arm stretched out the genderless idea which is a key trend for 2015/16.

WILLIAMSBURG I LOVE YOU

YOUR PEOPLE ARE COOL

Darn you H&M

h&M

Now I’m not saying that i was exclusively blind to the fact that H&M’s clothes can sometimes be really inexpensive. Or that Forever 21 manages to get away with cheap materials and reasonable , borderline cheap prices. However for some reason over the years being a ‘Conscious Consumer’ has always been something that has been neglected over and over again. I can say even for myself alongside every consumer that the fact that many people are literally shedding ‘Blood, sweat and tears’ for my clothing in other countries, is pushed to the back of my mind and sometimes doesn’t even resurface until a few weeks later when I’m actually wearing the item of clothing.

The shocking truth is the people behind our clothing are in some dire need of help.

We should give it to them!

…but i doubt anyone is going to boycott Forever 21 with their 7.99 denim skinny jeans.
