NET FORCE

Have you noticed that sporting knockoff versions of designer logos is even trendier than sporting the original logo this season? I found this imitation Céline sweatshirt - with the C substituted for an S - on Yes Style, and figured that the graphic was a well-executed representation of the most prevailing fast fashion trend this year. 2013 (and late 2012, too) loves a good graphic parody. It's clever. It's eye-catching. It's exempt from copyright infringement laws. It appropriates the prevalence of the original logo's look and creates competition out of it. Irony! Imitation! Postmodern juxtaposition!! Fashion is sooo crazy and meta these days!!!! Maybe I'll start wearing black head to toe next week. All this aesthetic analysis is hurting my brain... I just want to lay in my bed wearing sweat pants and NOT THINK for once. Maybe. 

Imitation logo aside, this sweatshirt features cut-out sleeves which are ideal for layering with unexpected textures like mesh. I knew I'd need some sort of black netting to pair underneath the sweater as soon as I realized my arms would be exposed. My next must-have: real mesh. Jersey mesh. More athletic than cybergoth. And "fitness friendly". My shorts are another seasonal staple: quilted leather is a classic design with futuristic appeal. Love the way they paired with suede wedges and minimal accessories. One chain this time -- I'm getting good at the whole 'less is more' mantra.

^^^^ I hope there's some appreciation for my tiny braid going on right now. Seems transhuman. H+ very chic in 2014... prepare for a prosthetic arm fad. 

Everything is infinite,

Bebe Zeva

  13. Loved the 'Céline parody' t-shirt, I think you're right.
    We like the parody t-shirts now, because a real one is too predictable and too expensive while the parody ones are not only original and sensed of fashioned humour but also very cheap :)
