look at that SHY P O W E R STANCE!!!

hi! yesterday i received a super exciting package that i hadn’t anticipated getting for another few months.

back in like… november or december jil sander made some of their new SS18 items available for preorder; of course, i was excited to become even poorer browse their selection! frankly, i had mixed feelings, because i haven’t really been impressed since Lucie and Luke Meier became co-creative directors. while i think the duo have a lot of talent and great ideas, i simply haven’t seen a lot of their garments being well-executed since taking up the helm at jil sander. a lot of their items seem like rebranded/offshoot ideas from some of Luke’s work at OAMC. even though i think that it’s sometimes charming to carry your ideas with you from one label to another, i believe that it is also important to diverge from a comfortable, yet linear design perspective.

with that said…the item that i preordered is this:

a lot of readers might not dig this or think it’s all too cool, (in fact, most of my friend’s told me to return it; their general reaction seemed to collectively be, “eh”). of course, like any person blindly seeking validation, i discarded all dissenting opinions and mentally refuted them; ultimately, i chose to keep it.

texturally, it hits all the right notes for me, and pattern-wise, i think it’s very unique, wearable, and just edgy enough to find its place nestled into a lot of my outfits/compositions

as far as the fit goes… it fits me…perfectly (???), which is very rare, since i have behemoth-sized broad shoulders, ((seriously, my shoulders are like 90° angles)). the fit is what really convinced me it was keeper.

me without my scarf, revealing…5% more of my sweater

anyway, i’m just real happy and figured i’d share this new acquisition with myself the world! let me know what you guys think! 🙂 and if you had any styling ideas or tips, let me know too!

also, how’s everyone doing today?? — well, i hope. today i felt like the epitome of despair and mitigated these pangs with two jumbo coffees and some lasagna, (not at the same time). this strategic consumption seemed to help because now i feel ……. 💯💯💯💯, as the millennials would say.

anyway farewell friends, until next update!~
