MFW - Arguing Armani

In the end...
BELIEVE IT OR NOT
It's not all about:
1. Glitz
2. Glam
3. Drama
4. Art
5. Irreverence
But clothes, yes, clothes.

This is why I'd like to argue a case...the case of Emporio Armani.
It's not getting written up.
It's not getting raves.
It's not getting buzz.
Gasp!
A DIFFUSION LINE?
Honestly, though?
It's just good.
These clothes are wearable and smart. They're not showy or avant-garde, they simply make a woman look like she knows her shit. It's inspiring, minimal, tasteful, sharp, and casual.

Isn't that something to celebrate?





These separates are so simple, so effortless...with no real pretentions of "minimalism". Armani is vastly unappreciated and makes me wonder...

when an editor decrees a collection as "intellectual"...

...what does that really mean?

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 about...my...wording... 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.
