i'm feeling the sun and the spring, and quite honestly cannot wait to get out of my winter gear. in my case, nothing radical is to be expected: i'll go on wearing black, grey and white with the optional small splash of color.
while my energy levels cumulate, sportswear i normally steer clear of gets back into the picture. a touch of sci-fi nerd keeps the look less street and more me, and i combined a spacey ktz top with rope inlay with american apparel leggings and nike dunks in patent leather. imho, the look is very much "space cadet ready for takeoff".
the street ninja would be too complete a comic book character without a touch of distraction -- be it color or material -- and although my foremost springtime yearning is for ankle exposure and sandals, in the meantime must settle for a flowing jacket. i found the linen parka earlier this spring at h&m and loved the floppy shape of it, the slit-like folds on the pockets and the double zips.
i look like a mushroom wearing it, but with a streamlined ensemble underneath the exaggerated slouchiness remains apparent. it is a play on proportion i really like when it comes to outerwear that i can just slip off; as we discussed with anna, narrow or slight shoulders can be an asset one may want to emphasize and oversized garments actually tend to do just that despite adding volume to your upper torso. unfortunately, the result may also take a rather hilarious this-kid-shopped-at-mummy's-closet -form.
i'm ready to shroom my way to spring.
