Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Outfit | Black Is The New Black IV


Last post of my black on black outfits. For now. Because I can finally taking a wee break before finals kick in.

終於來到一身黑的最後一篇。到下一波忙碌之前,先暫停此系列,下回再續。

This is probably one of my favorite off-beat look of all time - oversized errrthing. I love everything I am wearing today, they make me feel very comfortable being me. I especially adore the wavy patterns on my top, I am pretty much obsessed with everything with ocean or waves. (I even made a relief print with waves!) Besides that, everything here has been wore thousand times. Sorry if you wanna see the newest trend on this blog - it's not how I see fashion as personal style.

這套穿搭應該就是那一種,穿起來很自在卻又同時感到很自我風格強烈的一套吧。雖然我走的不是嬉皮波西米亞風,但曾經有朋友笑說披披掛掛就是我的風格,我覺得也滿正確的。特別喜歡這件上衣的紋路,像波浪一樣,緩緩地律動。

除此之外,其他的單品都是穿了千萬遍也還沒穿膩。我沒有辦法像很多人一樣,藉時尚之名每天換新衣服,那不是我認為的風格。

I have read an article by Erik Madigan Heck on creem magazine stating that being an artist is truly a labor of love.

Truly, my appreciation for artists has gone to the maximum after I became one. I see art so differently now; every time I visiting a exhibition or seeing any kind of performance, even a movie, I have integrated my perspective to look beyond the surfaces. Because I know how many hard work had put into it to be in front of the audience. The time and effort devoted is beyond imagination... we offer ourselves to the world and seeking to create something greater than us.  

我讀過一篇文章,文中提到搞藝術是一種愛的勞動。的確是啊,那時間與體力,還有絞盡腦汁的創作力,完全不是純興趣可以比擬的。自從自己也開始搞藝術之後,我對藝術家的敬意就提升到無極的境界;每看一場展覽或表演,甚至是電影,一首歌,我都可以看見表演背後的辛苦與心酸。我身邊充滿著認真努力的藝術家與表演者。他們把自己放進創作裡,希望能創造出比自己更巨大,比才氣更寬廣,比努力更努力的作品。每一次完成一個集結各種努力作品,就要馬上歸零,再開始下一個。擁有這樣的朋友,每次想到這裡,我就覺得很幸運。如果你身邊也有這樣的人,要好好珍惜。


Why am I talking about art here? Because that paint or glue thing (I can't even figure out) on the back of my culottes doesn't seem to coming off easily. That's part of sacrifice I made for art.

講來講去就是因為我心愛的褲子上有洗不掉的顏料!這犧牲也太大!(哭著跑走)(超誇張)
