Some things revolves around you while you can’t name it. On the tip of the tongue, or in your mind, you hear the same tone again without noticing it and slowly, it appears: a trend is born.
With experience in the stirrings of pages, you locate it earlier, with experience (and age unfortunately) you see it coming and don’t follow all of them, and like everyone else, you end by adopting some, after this. Few people can claim to be a precursor but sometimes you get the feeling of seeing this wind and this trand coming, then you this style take as yours.
As a writer sometimes finds the words for you, a style that comes to the cover sometimes delivers you from an intuition you couldn’t explain. The word is like a banner.
“Boyish” in this case and even if I don’t like the word, it has the merit of describe a style that suits me perfectly.
I’ve always loved feminine silhouettes which plays with the other gent codes. I like to dress myself like that, I like to borrow, and it’s clear that what inspires me is often a kind of median.
Pleasure to see girls tastefully dressed like this or discover the mag editorials I like, as ACNE PAPER I always buy with a great pleasure.
Fran Lebowitz, the writer who made the cover of the latest issue epitomizes style boyish. A physical easily said ungrateful who gives an impressive strength to her. A male costume, always, made in Savile Row, poses her inimitable style.
Could all the girls exaggerate the male side of their wardrobe? Should have we to be charismatic to dare overalls or striped blazer? The answer is known: pretty girl emphasizes her feminity and delicacy becoming Sir, great personalities their charisma, under the control of a men’s tailor.
Sometimes the trends that are part of the wind, gone away before the next season. Other in which we dive with the certainty that it will be just for a while. But sometimes our personality seems to find a style on which it can land.
We won’t read the “boyish” word every day in a few months but the style will have a long life, in my wardrobe anyway, definitely.
