NAME: Spring Things part I
In a matter of days spring will be upon us,and as such it will be time to trade in the parkas and long john under ware for lighter,brighter shirts, jackets and flourishes. That being the case, and since at NAME: we love lists we put together this Spring Things list. Its not a buyers guide more just evidence of where our heads and hearts are at as we hit the vernal equinox.
COLOR- but not gaudy, splashes of bright for no reason, subtle, effective hints.
Does the trick every time, as in belts and pants,color straight up from the bottom.
FLOURISHES-spring time is the rt time for these type of things. There's just something about the new life and fresh starts all round that make you wanna wear flowers and or feathers. Accessories like beads and scarves do a really good approximation of flowers and feathers with their eternal hippie tinge ,but keep it uncostumey.
Lightspeed Champion- with his folk troubadour stance and the best version of the Brain Jones haircut any black man has ever had ever Dev Hynes makes lush sweet music about listening to CRUNK, envying the life of camels, and the existential questions of the value of it all.
Key tracks: Stay the Fuck Away From Me- big, honest, self loathing fuck off to a 'stupid bitch'
and Gypsy- Fleetwood Mac cover as equally, electrically liquid as the original.
