I was recently invited to pay a visit to a cool shop by the name of GGrippo art+design, for their Green touch of Spain event. Although illness and scheduling conflict disabled me from visiting the press launch proper I really wanted to pay a visit to the popup shop and see what it was all about.
Those of you who follow me on other social media platforms know that I find sustainable, eco, and up-cycled fashion of upmost importance. Although I find it frustrating how inaccessible it can be for most people due to the cost, I hope that with time it will become the default option for fashion (and therefore more affordable). Really, how often do you need to hear of a certain resource running out because of overuse or overproduction ? Or how many animals are being displaced from their homes, or worse, killed for the sake of goods, accessories, and fashion ? How about how our own planet being polluted all because people don’t want to consider change ? We have a long way to go, but with every step we take change is made.
I like the addition of fashion illustrations on their facade.
In lieu of the Met Ball’s theme this past week, today’s art features punk style as interpreted by me. If you tuned in with the event you probably took note of the varying influences of punk as worn by the guests. It was in celebration of the Met’s new exhibition Punk: Chaos and Couture. So far I’ve read that it’s a hollow exhibition that somehow missed the heart of the punk movement, however I will still be paying a visit this weekend. Update soon to follow !
The punk style has long influenced fashion since its inception. In its true form it is a movement/aesthetic that has seen a dramatic decline. However there are still those who keep true to it, such as noted designer Vivienne Westwood. Westwood is one of the few people in the spotlight who has retained the rebellious nature and visual flamboyance that made this style so memorable. Although in her words “Punk folded when the Sex Pistols folded and Sid [Vicious] died”. That was quite a while ago, what of the ’80s punks ?
For those with an interest in this scene, here is a link to a late ’70s documentary on the early days of punk.

Today’s blog soundtrack: Heroin and Your Veins – I feel Everything
I recently had the pleasure of working with an online vintage shop by the name of Untitled Vintage. Lily, the owner, is an amazing person with a great eye. These images were shot for her Etsy store, so if you seen anything you adore I suggest you take a look at her shop. ;)

If it seems like I’ve been featuring this hat a lot, you’re not imagining things. It’s pretty much my go-to hat for days when there’s a fair amount of sunlight but not so much warmth. The look in today’s post is pretty simple. We planned some play time in the park, so I dressed to allow for movement as well as sun protection.
The outfit features a F21 blazer, Asos maxi dress, Miss KL wide brim hat, and House of the Black Wolf – Moon Howl Necklace.
Today’s art looks a bit muddy, I blame my laziness for that. Sometimes I just don’t feel like scanning and resort to using my phone and in this case the pencil just wasn’t going to let me get away with it.
