Art We Can Wear

I recently turned to the philosophy the display of fashion is the art of fashion.  That train of thought was immediately cemented with the editorial Touch in the Summer 2014 issue of Dazed Magazine, a beautiful look at Pre-Fall 2014 menswear captured 
by legend Jamie Morgan and styled by Robbie Spencer.  
Before the onslaught of images of the same garments throughout next months September issues, the Touch story reminds us the unexpected and clumsy can be pretty and graceful.  Alone the styles have the potential of coming off as literally from your grandfather's wardrobe.  Taking the focus off of the menswear pieces and mixing styles with uncomfortable accessories create a fresh image which 
grabs you on a journey of a brightened underground world.  
And then there's Binx.  
Not only is Binx so f**king nonchalantly cool wearing fur and carrying squid, she isn't afraid of barb wire or broken glass.  And her knowing stare lets you know she knows this sh*t isn't for everyone but YOU and her.
