A DASH OF RED

Shirt - Cheap Monday / Trousers - April 77 / Leather Braces - Zara / Socks - H&M / Creepers - TUK
Bag - Copenhagen Fashion Week  Official Tote
In the spirit of V-day I wore my newly purchased leather braces from Zara yesterday. I got it at the sale rack last Sunday at a ridiculous unbelievable amount while perusing Zara's latest collection at the men's section. Who would have thought I'd find this red leather braces here in Manila. I have to admit that at one point I was undeniably obsessed with Hedi Slimane's red leather braces from his SS06 collection for Dior Homme. It was indeed one of the most sought after runway pieces from his "The World Was A Mess, But His Hair Was Perfect" Collection. Too bad it's just quite difficult to locate this holy Slimane grail. So now I have to settle with my not-so-bad Zara version. 

Dior Homme S/S 2006 

Hedi Slimane will always be my fashion hero. Hedi absolutely revolutionized menswear. It would have not reached its status today without his strong influence. No wonder Hedi and his work continues to serve as a point of reference to many of today's successful menswear designers. 
 I would have never ventured into fashion if it wasn't for Hedi.
So, today Hedi is my Valentino!
