PERFECTO OBSESSION

Today I got my hands on a little spare cash and immediately went shopping.  Whenever I go vintage shopping (pretty much the only kind of shopping I do) I always check out the leather jackets first, and today I found one almost identical to one I already own.. so of course I had to buy it.  I won't be able to wear it until the summer is over, but now I can rest easy knowing that when I want to stud my old one, I have another just like it that will remain untouched.  I also nabbed a few printed silk shirts that are lightweight enough to make layering feasible in hot weather.

PS Check out this article about Seven in the NY Times

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
