PUNK-ISH IN SOHO

Pictures by James Chardon

MY LOVE FOR TARTAN Or should I say ”how I got influenced by the tartan over-dose in shops and magazines”, oh yes… I am just another little lamb following the trends this time… And I LOVE IT! Yes I do! I love how fashion makes me try new things from time to time and pushes me re-invent myself in a way I would have never tried before. And in fact it also leads me to another conclusion : I should push myself more, without the help of fashion or a whatsoever trend out there. I think back into my childhood when I used to drape myself with the living room’s curtains and imagine it’s a glamourous lady gown. What keeps me from doing it now (I do secretly dream of hanging out at NYFW with a curtain on the back)? It would be so insane. No, but honestly, what if the only fashion reference we had out there, was us. Just ourselves, our own brain, our own hands and nothing else? Would we think about wearing the perfect Chanel bag? Would we even find the ”boy” pretty?

Because I feel like all these trends and the fashion industry in general have such a huuuge influence on our perception (which is kind of the point isn’t it?). One day we looove prints, the next day we swear on black (ugh, I hate colours… I’ve been super grungy lately *smoking an electronic cigarette* huf huf… D’uh Hedi Slimane told you, you would be grungy). The new strategies and concepts are building up ”the new modern men/women”, some are taking in consideration what people are really, actually aspiring to wear, but yet some labels want to shock, make a mark (ever heard of yellow fur heels?). I watched this Jimmy Kimmel video and laughed my bum off. Seriously! Watch it and ask yourself the question? I am also just a little lamb? My point is, we should invent our own trends, our own fashion and style. We have the huge chance to have all these geniuses, incredible designers who offer us daily inspiration and a gigantic choice of clothing to build up our own dream closet. So this doesn’t mean you shoulnd’t adopt a new trend you love, but clearly never wear something you hate just because it’s trendy (Birkenstocks, I really hate you guys… even though you’re ”in”). So I do LOVE my tartan pants, and this whole new punk-ish look. As always my thing is to add some elegance and classic details to a rock n’ roll look, and this vintage Chanel bag is simply perfect. What are you thoughts on all this?

Sometimes I really do feel girls are a bit like lambs, following all the trends. Like the skort! It came and absolutely EVERYBODY wore it, just because it was in … I’m not even sure many of them liked it. Your idea is amazing and something I’ve also thought abot – why not just take my own imagination and create outfits :) Of course trends are great and it’s good to keep an eye on but I’m not going with the flow – I’ll do it only if I really really love the trend! :)

I have to say I don’t like it.. I feel like when you changed your hair you change your whole image and now I see you totally different.. I’ve really liked the old Kristina better.

love your outfit :) and I get what you mean about fashion and following trends. For me i always try to stick to my guns on what I want and dont want to wear but sometimes I do get caught up with the bandwagon esp if my favorite artist is wearing it :)))

Very insightful post here…I watched the Jimmy Kimmel video and also started wondering ‘are we slaves to the fashion industry’? People try so hard to be ‘in’, when the more important thing is to enjoy fashion and wear clothes that make you smile, instead of blindly following trends to show that you’re ‘in’ but you don’t actually like what you’re wearing. That is so sad!

Hi Kristina!! I realized that one of the things that I enjoy the most of your blog is reading you. You know there are a lot of amazing fashion blogs, with great style and great photography, but you do a lot more that share your fashion throught the pictures, you also share with us some of your thoughts and I love it, and also the way that you do it. It is a real pleasure to come here every morning and read you and enjoy with your pictures with a cup of coffe. It’s hard to believe how smart and mature you are only with the age of 19. This makes you unique, please don’t stop explaing us all what your think.
keep doing!!!

Great style – I’m totally in love with your pants, love KK ♥

You are beautiful. But I don’t enjoy the grunge, punk, rock style anymore.

Great trousers! This looking is very much coming in.

I absolutley agree with your opinion, and think that video is hillarious! But it sometimes happens to me that I don’t like one trend so I don’t wear it. But when I see a lot of this trends, ideas how to wear it i slowly start to love it! It was like that with tartan, at first I thought ughh that’s ugly, but now I’m craving for A-line tartan skirt! Guess we really are easy to guide!

I think what I like most about this blog are:
- the lifestyle articles, the whole vibe you’re sending while traveling around;
- the exquisite photos, very high-end magazines like;
- you casually natural and discreet.

I like it hat you wear only small, tiny, meaningful jewelry; that you stick to your hair color and only enhance it, but just a bit, I like it that you have distinction written all over everything you wear, be it punk or classic.

If you feel like wearing punk one day – so be it, because there’s always the same message sent out, guiding the outfit: distinction.
I’m sorry, you would stand out in a punk crowd for not being angry, mad, spiked enough. :P
It’s not the clothes, you’re too classy, baby. :)

Hey folks! Thank you so much for all your awesome comments. I am really glad about your reaction as this is something quite different.

And actually I really do enjoy writing, so much in fact! It’s a real passion and is very relaxing too (you should try! free your mind bla bla bla)

P.S How funny is the Jimmy Kimmel video. I am still laughing

LOVE the navy bag!
