Todd Lynn spring 2010 via Studded Hearts
THIS PICTURE MAKES ME WANT TO BLOG LIKE KANYE WEST but I will spare you the caps-lock yelling. I don't need to yell about this, actually. YES, Todd Lynn put metal armor horn things on the shoulders of his jackets. This doesn't help me Todd Lynn. This only makes your coat more expensive. Do I really want to walk around Los Angeles with large metal impaling implements flanking my head? No, no I don't. If Free People (or any brand, but that was the first that came to mind) rips you off and starts putting cheap metal pieces on the shoulders of THEIR blazers for slightly less money, will I want to wear those? Probably not.
I fully understand that fashion = art. Fashion doesn't HAVE to be wearable. That's definitely a plus, but if you are super fierce Kate Lanphear status, then you can get away with metal shoulder antics.
As you are probably wondering, do I have a point here?
(yes, it is located next to my fancy yellow arrow)
I WOULD TOTALLY WEAR THAT BLAZER WALKING AWAY FROM ME. THE BACK OF IT LOOKS AWESOME. I WOULD PAY $$$ FOR THAT BECAUSE I COULD KEEP IT AND WEAR IT FOREVER AND NOT REGRET BUYING A JACKET FROM THE LANCELOT/BARBARIAN COLLECTION OF CRAZY.
Here's the front:
(nothing too special, but that's why you could keep/wear this blazer for-ev-er. It's like a mullet - business up front, party in the back.)
