FAUX BOW TIE

Henrik Vibskov is one of my favorite designers. I'm particularly obsessed with his womenswear and his quirky hats! Last year, I was lucky to wear one of his runway pieces from his Fall Winter 2012-2013 collection at his show in Copenhagen. It was quite a surreal moment - sitting on front row decked in a Vibskov obra! Of course, it wouldn't have been possible without my friend Rune Park!
Anyway, today I wore this red pinstripe Mandarin collar shirt with a quirky faux bow tie from Vibskov's The Solar Donkey Experiment collection back in 2010. I like the mix of wit and humor. Fashion is supposed to be fun after all, right? Aside from this fabulous shirt, my Helmut Lang nylon messenger bag debuts my blog as well. Next time I promise to take more photos of this sick utilitarian day bag that I couldn't get enough of. Don't we all just miss the genius that is Helmut Lang!!!
