Walking by a shop window in a USA capital city, I saw the rooster.
Printed on a tee, the rooster was skating carelessly.
Should I be embarrassed to feel nervous inspiration staring at that rooster?
This tee is from VANS, the 1966 Californian born brand, super-hero for the Slip-Ons, worn also by Sean Penn in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”. It was in 1982 and ever since the brand has been through a “victorious” bankruptcy that challenged a whole new range of products as well as sublime partnerships with star-designers of our times.
The skater look is more than perfectly cool…
The Cure sing “But what ever I do it’s never enough”…
So also by VANS… the fabulous, very navy, straight, seven button reefer jacket. When buttoned to the top, it can look rigid and as protective as a roll neck.
The benefit of “façon” tailoring is to twist street wear. Open-up your reefer jacket to reveal this burgundy tailor-shoulder jacket from COS.
Then comes the rooster from VANS. Determined, arrogant multi color, skater rooster, printed on a chambray grey cotton fabric.
Scruffy bleached denim slacks from VANS. Focus on the stain-dots. Rugged & real.
Bi-Era beige leather & grey wool statement shoes by VANS.
Unabashed Intello-clash with the MCS multi-function bag and the PERSOL eyewear wonders also sunburst foresighted.
