ζ DIOR ζ Spring 2017



Super marketable sporty-ballet-hip hop-fairy-lingerie-prom collection




The branded elastic is a very smart move, taking Dior consciously into a "young urban" direction
(slightly a Wang knock-off, but each of our lives is a patchwork of knock-offs, get used to it)
Haha that looks like it wants to say "Wank-off"







Boxer sneaker boots 



Love the vintage-thermal hi-waisted underpants. 
It's kinda 'Nu-kinderwhore' or something.







Quilted Leather Top - reminds me of a Fencer's chest protector


Fencing outfit





Fencing-like pants


Fencing pants





Kevlar Vest-like Bodice Tops












It's reminiscent of the beloved Vionnet - spring 2015 collection:

I like it. 
I've got a weakness for white mesh.



Cool, understated chain suspenders.






Meshy cardigans are cool

Informed Appropriation: Fashion vs. Politics



Chanel - 2012 Couture

Outrage directed at the world of Fashion - a place meant for fantasy & fun -
only displaces efforts in the fight against racism.

Being inspired by another culture is not wrong.
Innocent civilians getting shot in the street without justice is wrong.


Chanel - 2012 Couture

Yes, it is important to be respectful & informed of the historic / cultural / 
religious connotations behind what you wear.
 But being Open-minded is what empathy & equality are all about.
Fashion & Art don't belong to one race.



Chanel - 2012 Couture

Let's not water down the purpose of the BLM movement when
non-discriminatory cultural appropriation Is possible. 
It's called fashion.



Jean Paul Gaultier - spring 2013 menswear



Cybergoth Fashion
