I am just an ordinary fashion victim, with an aversion to humans.....
I am a pensive and peculiar wanderer...
....now I know you gonna have a crush for me.
“‘Pleats’ was introduced into ISSEY MIYAKE in 1989, and has been developed every season thereafter. By 1993, it was ready to be launched as a complete and stand-alone brand and appeared as PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE for the Spring-Summer collection.
This is a line that is positioned to embody one of the most fundamental concepts of Issey Miyake - where the true value of design lies in its integration into the everyday life and comfort of the wearer. This is clearly demonstrated in the development and evolution of traditional techniques of processing and of pleating material into a highly functional modern product - light in weight and easy to wear and handle. This revolutionary concept has won the respect and admiration of women throughout the world and contributed to the growth of an iconic brand - an ingenious fusion of creation, technology and business”. - isseymiyake.com
Get out of bed, make a hot drink and go outside. You owe yourself that much. Maybe you still cry in far too many public bathrooms, but I swear, you stay a few seconds less every time. Smile at strangers if it’s all you can do, know that life doesn’t start when the sun rises or the credits roll but when you decide it’s time to go after what you deserve, and you deserve everything because we are alive both only once and a million times every day and every minute is something new to learn and someone new to love, and if it all crashes and burns as it so often does cling on to hope through it all and don’t ever ever ever let it go. Start your life again whenever you need to. Repeat after me: it is not yet the end. It is not yet the end. It is not yet the end.

Self care is important. Do what makes you happy. Your desires, no matter how great or minute, matter. Paint your nails. Uniformity is unnecessary. Choose colors that make you grin. Buy pretty panties. For yourself. Not for him or her. Stop attaching guilt to every pleasure. Eat good. Make no apology for taking care of yourself.

An illustration I did [for thrills] of the amazing @tavitulle of @RookieMag. A great inspiration to me and the kids of america (wah-oh).

We need to take a brief interlude to discuss/admire this — Devon Aoki by Paolo Roversi, for the first issue ever of Numero, 1999 — because IT IS BASICALLY PERFECT amirite, yes, okay, cool, glad we’re on the same page.
He could have hardly claimed he had the best life. Never really loved by anyone, never seeming really to love anyone either. His eyes always had this uneasy look, like, what now? You don’t see that look in a cat too often.
