Lets get the WDYWT done and get onto the good bit. The footwear. Well it wasn’t today, I ended up chilling about in baggy joggers attempting to be proactive but procrastination was more the theme of the day. This was a couple of days ago, trying to fit in sometime to write this one hasn’t been the easiest.
SO, new year, new me. Not really. Although I am going to start throwing out why and how I choose some of my outfits. I know look at me go with the masses of Fashion Bloggers, so unique!
More sarcastic, but still the same.
I was bought this hoodie for Christmas with a warning “Do not wear this on Christmas Day. Your grandma will be offended and someone might think you are aiming this towards them”. Sometimes you want to offend some people?
The colour of this was perfect in my opinion, from the preview to wearing, I loved the colour and it had to be partnered with black denim to really give it some real contrast and draw attention the hoodie. To match up the colours, I chose the painted floral camp which has a shade that matches perfectly.
You would think they came out in the same season.. . I swear I don’t always have a hat on, but mostly I do.
Of course as I have said before the footwear can make or break the outfit. Why ruin your style with some trashed, plimsols from some god forsaken shop that has closed down. We all know those stores. I thought black footwear would go with this perfectly, possibly my Vans X Highs and Lows from SS16. I thought no, lets keep the rest of the outfit bold. Also what better way to get the new footwear out, I made the right choice here I feel.
Hat: Supreme, FW17, Painted floral Camp, Purple.
Hoodie: Supreme FW17, Fuck Em All, Plum.
Jeans: Nudie, Long John, Light Blue.
Shoes: Vans X Take Hayashi X Santa Cruz, Pro Skate ArcAd, Pink.
VANS PRO SKATE ARCAD: TAKA HAYASHI (TH) X SANTA CRUZ
This collaboration is between one of the greatest Vans designers and two powerhouses of the skateboarding world. This was a pair of kicks I was sadly letting pass me by. Knowing that these would be added to the list of ones that I wished I copped. Sadly we can’t have them all, well some people can and do. Me? I damn well try my best.
These were a gift and a perfect gift they were!
Santa Cruz to this day remain a true powerhouse of skate. They have created some of the most treasured graphics in the skate world since the 80’s. With the bold slogan “Skateboarding Is Not A Crime”, sitting proudly on the side and embossed on the sidestripe, these stay true to the roots of Santa Cruz.
Featuring boldly on the back is the original skull artwork by TH. Both Santa Cruz and Taka have detailed tongues dedicated with their names and logo. The detail and time gone into these should make every vans collector jump to get a pair. If you missed the drop, I have seen a few change hands online, make sure you add this collaboration between two powerhouses and TH to your collection!
As you can tell I managed to stop some of the procrastination today and finally get this done!
