Comme again?




This is Gabriel everyone. You can all ignore the super lame title.
Well i haven't posted in quite some time, not having a cameria is quite the inconvenience. Well happy new year and happy holidays. Over winter break i went to China, that was exciting. The grocery stores are like walking into pet stores, theres jellyfish and bullfrogs and turtles. I went to the comme des garcons store and martin margiela store, i almost had a heart attack. I tried taking pictures in the comme des garcons store but the lady told me i wasn't allowed. All the workers wear the clothes and they look so cool, i totally wanted to buy everything, but the cheapest things were from play and $12o for a t-shirt is not very reasonable, even though Rei Kawakubo designed them. My most exciting purchase was my panda hat, i received strange looks wearing it today. Someone asked me if they could touch it and cars would slow down as they drove by me. I also bought drop crotch pants and this big knit pod/caccoon. I actually don't know what it is but it quenched my henrik vibskov knits obsession, oh the shoes that the buddhist monks wear, i thought they looked like tao. China is quite exciting, hardly anyone in Shanghai knows english and there not very familiar with the word hello and just say good morning at all times. The street vendors are quite familiar with english, and quite a few know spanish, its quite shocking, they also never leave you alone.
(please excuse my horrible collage making)
I realized that Renata and Ava basically never post any runway stuff or street style stuff, and being as i have far too many street style/runway pics on my computer, you get lots of henrik vibskov, comme des garcons, Alexander Mcqueen, Gareth pugh, and marc jacobs in the next few days. Sorry for the awkward post set up, i don't exactly understand how to get the picture in the middle of the post and im in the midst of studying for finals so i shall save that for later.




Heres what i wore today: pants:h&m(they need altering), black lame hoodie(yes im wearing two jackets, a long sleeved shirt, and a furry hat in florida)American apparel, polka dotted hoodie:h&m, white shirt:Zara, bow tie: came with my band uniform, Black oxfords(not visible): some store in China called 5cm, hat: street vendor lady that nearly attacked me to get me to buy it
