Houseago was just one in a chorus of creative voices that harmonized around this collection. Although there were some very overtly personal and Mexican touches, such as sequins reflecting China Poblana festival wear and the Boxer Dog Halloween moreover I love this Aztec Eagle logo of the United Farm Workers’ association, for whose Mexican migrant pickers Owens’s father often worked as a translator in the California courts (these garments and a piece of jewelry will be sold to benefit the UFW), he said he was very careful to avoid the folkloric side of Mexican culture. Instead, he said, he had become fascinated with the effect of Mexican culture on the work of Josef and Anni Albers, the subject of a recent-ish show at the Guggenheim. Owens expounded: “I loved that combination of modernism with something so ancient. Looking at the drawings they made that were inspired by the sites was the Mexico angle I wanted.” With the exception of some Perspex-heeled platforms and rough tire-sole cowskin sandals that caused much trepidation as the models descended steps while keeping their eyes fixed on the pit, it was also a collection abrim with highly wearable pieces. Personally I loved the cotton jackets in a black and white set with austere, angled grids of ribbon and lacing, which was sometimes reflected in a riot of lacing on a Veja collab sneaker and looped into the fabric of some loose wool track pants. The sequins incorporated one-color oversize tailoring and looked pleasingly sleazy, while metallic-finished outerwear boasted a brutal industrial shimmer. In collaboration with Champion, Owens primitivized its cotton jersey via transformation into togas and loincloths. Zippered jumpsuits, some half-worn to optimize ab exposure, looked toughly utilitarian, while short-hemmed tailored jackets in white snakeskin over low-neck loose T-shirts and white sequined zippered pants appeared twistedly slick especially when teamed with a pompadour. According to Josef Albers, “in art, tradition is to create, not to revive,” and in this highly artful collection, we saw an outstanding expression of the tradition in the clothing created by Owens. The convenient accessibility to my sister’s lingerie paved the way for me to experiment which I inevitably did when home alone one day. Whilst it was a most exciting and somewhat of a nerve-wracking experience due to it being my first experience trying on panties and a slip, I was also thrilled at how the panties felt and how they looked on me when I checked in the mirror. The nylon and lace slip enhanced even further the delightful silky feeling of the silky nylon panties. The two layers of silky nylon lingerie felt so wonderfully good I did not want to take them off.
Boxer Dog Halloween, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
Purple Label is Ralph Lauren’s jewel in the Boxer Dog Halloween moreover I love this crown, a cultivated exercise in fine tailoring, where a quintessential sense of ease is infused with sophisticated polish. A palette of soft tonal colors, a slightly vintage insouciance, a fluidity of fit and balance of proportions come to mind when thinking of Purple Label’s signature aesthetic. Yet at today’s presentation at the label’s sumptuous Milanese headquarters, what stood out was a gorgeous, visually compelling lineup of brightly colored evening suits in shades of saturated yellow, fuchsia, and orange. Slim fitting and sharply cut in silk shantung, they looked exceptional, pointing towards an updated approach, with a zest of chic playfulness: “They’re tailored with a lighter construction, but still maintaining sartorial proportions,” said John Wrazej, executive vice president and creative director of men’s design. “They’re all handmade; it’s our uncompromising way of tailoring. They’re probably among the best suits you can find.” The collection also played on sophistication in the daywear offer, with tailoring in proprietary soft-toned wool-gabardine exuding a luxurious yet relaxed feel. An interesting alternative for summer evenings was a single-breasted cashmere blazer in a dense, sensual tobacco shade; paired with cream-colored fluid pants, “it’d look beautiful with a tan,” suggested Wrazej. A sporty allure featured prominently in a series of knitted intarsia sweaters and polo shirts with marine-inspired motifs, while nautical references were in evidence in officer’s jackets, wide-leg pants, and striped sweaters. But the most innovative aspect the collection were the RLX technical performance fabrics used for roomy, well-cut waterproof parkas and sailing jackets. “It’s nylon, a polyester yarn made using recycled plastic bottles,” explained Wrazej. ”It’s completely high-performance. The company is taking a strong stand towards going sustainable. For Fall we’ll have a lot more sustainable fabrics; probably 80 percent of our nylons and insulations will be made with sustainable yarns,” he continued. “The issue is front and center across the company, with very strict guidelines that over the next four or five years we’ll be shifting the label towards a much more environmentally conscious approach, even in manufacturing.” From that initial exciting experience it was not very long where I again felt the irresistible urge to try on my sister’s panties and a slip. Following a second experience I knew within myself that I would not be able to resist the temptation to try on panties and a slip again. My life from that point would include dressing up in panties and a slip whenever the opportunity presented, and when I experimented with a bra I then wanted to try on a skirt, stockings and then a dress. My sister had the most gorgeous assortment of very pretty panties and slips which was so enticing.
