Wearing A Jumpsuit Is Always Fun

 

A jumpsuit will not only hug you all day long, but will also keep you warm and help you spend less time in front of your wardrobe and more time in the bathroom. There’s no one funnier than one wanting to pee-pee (as my 4 year old niece would say) whilst in a jumpsuit.

I wore the one below on a Saturday noon to my favourite coffee shop and I’d been drinking / I’d been drinking coffee and water. The cardigan and the faux fur vest layering the jumpsuit turned a typical way to the ladies room into a What-are-you-doing?-a-friend-drinking-coffee-also-asks way. I’d started to unbutton everything from the moment I got up and when the question popped out, the eyes popped out also and the answer was immediate: I have to pee! and there wasn’t anything truer on the planet at the time.

From the moment I’d shut the bathroom door, Cream could have started and by the time the song was done, I was the nakedest one can get while one alone in a bathroom without any thoughts of bubble baths whatsoever.

Aside from the experience one can only live with this particular piece of clothing, the jumpsuit is as versatile as the pajamas we all love are and we could wear one from dusk till dawn and not only get away feeling comfy in it, but also be super hip for anything.

And excited! Girls, am I right or am I right? There is something about jumpsuits and they know that we know and we know that they know. No?

Yes.

1. Layering one with a cardigan and vest makes a whole rollercoaster ride out of the jumpsuit on its own in the ladies room. Jees, the multitude of stories one can use a jumpsuit in! I wonder what the next one will be like.

Sneakers are here to make it all more comfortable while stripping down.

2. It’s all much easier when wearing a double-breasted jacket and glossed-leather brogues on. For some reason, it will make you want to look only to the right. Never to the left, to the left.

3. And to the right we went. This time around with heels, socks, denim jacket and the vest. All pulled together by a waist belt. If you can’t find one (though you know you have one somewhere in your house), wear a strong string of something. This one here is a leather one I can’t remember where I got from, but it’s just perfect when nothing else around.

I think it’s from a bag or smth. Or someone’s huge shoes who lost some really big leather shoelaces.

We have been stripping while Dave Gahan was singing.

Now let me see you stripped down to the bone.

FW16 Fashion Ad Campaigns That Will Make You Cry Tears Of Joy Or Drama (Thanks To Kanye And Kim)

The winter is so not around the corner and it is, obviously, so far away anyway. Yay! But. But! Having my Facebook account used for my daily fashion feed I could not not overlook the Balmain fall winter 2016 campaign shares of my apparently pretty fashionable friends.

Who I knew were pretty, but didn’t quite expect to be that fashionable.

But. But!

Then I watched the video and I got it. It was Kanye West’s video Wolves that was used as the fashion ad of the brand’s fw16 campaign. Or was is the other way around?

It is very interesting how, lately, all these worlds collide and you never know what is going to be next. The next collaboration, fashion trend or Taylor Swift relationship. You never know what is going to be next regardless, but, nowadays, it seems like Kim could, any time now, sing along with Kanye and become a band called “Kimye“. They sort of have already. For this. So there.

The cast (Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, Sia, Vic Mensa, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jourdan Dunn, Sasha Luss, Joan Smalls etc.) is all wearing really expensive Balmain clothes and crying. Why so sad though? Steven-Klein-directed-it-and-Olivier-Rousteing-(French and romantic)-creative-directed why. That’s why.

This, initially, started as an article about the upcoming fashion campaigns (see title) and how we have so much until winter yay bla bla (see intro) and it got to already two paragraphs of only the Balmain ad. Well, this is precisely what the whole combination wants us to do. To become curious, to see, to share and write. And, ultimately, buy the clothes? Flushed face emoji.

We’d already forgotten about the clothes. It is about high fashion (tho’), Kanye West’s latest video, Kim Kardashian, famous supermodels, drama, tears, black and white footage all, glamorously, put together by the notoriously praised photographer Steven Klein.

How come North and Saint West didn’t make it in? Because you know what they say in theatre: don’t ever bring babies or animals on stage.

The video is said to be shot right after the Met Gala, so while everyone was enjoying Instagram and food at the party, Olivier Rousteing (and the whole marketing department) was working on having us all talking (three months past the event) of, yet another, media boom. They did, in fact, brought animals on stage, in the end. You with me? You’d better. Because other wise, you will end up with the wolves, ma’ friend.

The following fall 2016 ad campaigns are the ones that have been in my drafts for a while now, the ones who actually made me want to write about this huge trend right now. Trend amongst trends, yes. The video presentations of the imminent collections of the biggest fashion houses.

Because this is the world we’re living in, it is running at full speed and we can not but ketchup. Just like the baby tomato in Mia’s papa tomato, mama tomato and baby tomato joke in Pulp Fiction.

And we can not but like the world, the life and the joke.
