The outfits are like relationships: there are old and familiar, ones that raise a lot of questions, ones that make you discover something unexpected, ones that bring you far from your starting point, and ones that bring you back. But the most important, difficult and exciting is the outfit we must collide in the mirror every day. In practice, the relationship with yourself.
I decided to make this outfit not thinking about a specific topic or a situation to wear it. I just chose what I liked, with a bit of self-criticism because it doesn’t make sense to rely only on taste. You should always be able to look yourself from the outside.
I chose the sweater of Boy London, memory of a past spring between the floors of Selfridges, along with cotton trousers-shorts by Little Bastard, bought in a shop of my city that I found on Instagram. At the foot I decided to wear the Ozzy Low Black model of the spring-summer 2014 CULT Shoes collection. With a derby classic English taste, designed to break the mold and a rock’n’roll soul with transparent outsole and “grunge” toe.
As accessories, I chose an anchor charm with a military necklace and a leather bracelet with studs and vintage coins by Roi Style. Roi is a brand of jewelry and accessories made in Italy that puts particular attention to the quality of materials, the stylistic appeal and an affordable price. The bag is also of the same brand. Each bag of Roi is entirely handmade, and characterized by the use of recycled materials (mine is made from a pair of trousers) and original metal accessories, that underline its strong personality, making it unique.
Finally, like sunglasses, I chose a Grey Ant model with oversized lenses by Bangood. Because you have to be covered a little bit. Even by yourself.
