WHY CAN’T I BE YOU? VOL VII: CARLOTTA ODDI

My latest sartorial girl crush is Carlotta Oddi, major babe and assistant to tits-mental Vogue Nippon editor Anna della Russo. Stylistically, (and for her sake, I hope mentally, have you seen the ‘Fashion Shower’ video?) the polar opposite of AdR, Carlotta’s outfits encompass all of my favourite things – heavy menswear and streetwear influences, prints, I also love that unlike a lot of high-profile streetstyle favourites, she’s loyal to a piece and not precious about piece repetition – for example, her Opening Ceremony varsity, and Balenciaga leather biker, which when I was considering buying it, upon trying it on made me look more like a badly wrapped barrel, SAD TIMES.

AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

If you’re Americally inclined, you may know that today is Independence Day. Isn’t America great? It’s many gifts to the world include some of my all time favourite things  – Proenza Schouler, the McNugget, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Pop Tarts, Andre Leon Talley…I could go on. (Also, #AMERICAFACT: My German aunt moved to America after the Second World War and got so fat that she couldn’t eat any salt as her heart would explode)

In celebration of this #importanthistoricalevent, here’s a selection of America-inspired looks.

SS13 TREND REPORT / WOMENS / THE CLASH

Patterns spread like wildfire across both the mens and womens SS13 collections, but womenswear was all about the clash. When I was a young man, clashing prints were the proviso of ~wacky~ art teachers whose questionable sartorial choices could be blamed on inhaling too many “paint fumes”. Fast forward to SS13 and florals, plaids, geometric prints, marbling and every other combination imaginable is one of the most prevalent womenswear trends. A great way to break up an outfit, accentuate textures and layers, this is also a great trend for those of us whose attitude to getting dressed in the morning is a ‘throw everything on the floor onto my body’ approach…

ORANGE YOU GLAD TO SEE ME?

Orange is a colour that generally I avoid like the plague. It tends to remind me of my time as the world’s worst waitress at Yo Sushi, constantly tripping over Hare Krishnas in Soho and the headache I get from looking at Kat Slater’s face if I’m hungover. However, orange pops up on the catwalk with alarming regularity, so facing my fears,

As someone who generally prefers black to pretty much everything, it’s definitely going to take me a long time to learn to love orange. Maybe if I tape this to my desk it’ll work like aversion therapy and by the end of the week I’ll be head to toe…
