The musings, rantings, longings, and fawnings of a teenage fashion maven with a propensity for writing.

Rei Kawabuko of Tao/Comme de Garcons is designing a line for H&M. Yes, officially. Slag on the harlequinn facepaint and start crafting your ironic homemade accessories!

Except not. Perhaps.

Sure, Cavalli's done it. Stella McCartney. Madonna. Even the delectably strident/infamous/"omigod they're so RANNNDOMM!" indiehipsterFrench electro duo, Justice, has gotten in on the fun (don't you just LOVE those leather jackets?). But Rei? Has she the restraint? After all:

Oh, and:

Not to mention:

But believe it or not, a preview from W magazine hints at some...censorship.

Pity. For shame! I don't know about ya'll, but I like me some neon tulle with my modestly priced gray trenchcoats and uncharacteristically loud briefs. C'mon Rei. A little irreverence! Some pizzaz! We want bubble wrap tees and kissy-lip cutouts, dammit!

On the other hand, that jacket at right...

It shall be mine.

I'm not much of a business man, now am I?

About Me

My photo
Really, I don't want to be that stereotypical gay teenager who blogs about fashion...but I'm out of my head for the whole affair, it simply can't be helped! I'm going to communicate what's on my mind, say/do what you will! I do care about said thoughts, though, I cannot lie. I guess I'm somewhat intelligent, but not very mature. I am, in turns, a minimalist and a maximalist. Sorry I'm fifteen. I live near Boston. Blah. My interests aren't as insular as they appear! I swear! I do theater, I love photography, and I write. Obviously, I suppose. Thanks for humoring me. No, really.
