Vice’s “DOs & DON’Ts,” revised by someone who is not high or cool
via Vice [original]
Sorry, sorta annoyed by Vice‘s “Do and Don’t” series, in which urban fashion is qualified under so many layers of kitsch and irony that the DOs often seem provocative for its own sake, and somewhat unbelievable. I try to appreciate this, as some social commentary, far more than the Dos and Don’ts of corporate fashion glossies like Us and People, yet it feels like Vice here is the emperor chasing our image with mirrors, telling us of special fabrics only they can see, until we too see it. Be careful: punk sounds a lot like drunk, and only one can be dissent. Dear people, there’s always a sale at Ross. It’s okay to be invisible.
