Homeless Fashion and So Much More

This get-up comes from the new collection by InAisce, designed by a New Yorker called Jona.

Here’s how Trendland describes the collection:

 Jona of InAisce developed a unisex line of clothes that melds the lines between mythical and avant garde fashion. Drawing on homelessness as inspiration for the collection “Seeking Aether” transports us to multiple landscapes. 

And here’s CoolHunting, raising the stakes:

The line’s sinuous draping and streamlined silhouettes, however, effortlessly melded into androgynous geometry, garnishing a unisex following and establishing InAisce as a transcendent force. Blurring the lines between sartorial ingenuity and mythical intrigue, InAisce explores “homelessness” as a transient quest in search of one’s origins with “Seeking Aether.”

Note the difference between homelessness and “homelessness.” Subtle but telling!

I’m going to “garnish” the CoolHunting “writer” with the Most Pathetic Journalism of the Week™ award, for not knowing the meaning of the word garnish.  She was thinking of “garner” but even that would have been pretentious. Better to stick with “earning a following” or “acquiring a following.”  In any case, G words are not interchangeable, girl!

Can somebody make me a cute little MPJOTW™ thingie that I can use for this coveted new award?* Just send it to sisterwolf666@gmail    xoxo

    Wasn’t this look all ready mocked relentlessly in the movie “Zoolander”? How embarrassing….

  2. Andra says:

    I am quite intrigued by the model’s pointed head though. Great cheekbones too.

  3. Bonnie says:

    If I ever go on a transient quest in search of my origins, I won’t be doing it in a frayed sheepskin rug.

  4. Suspended says:

    I wish these fanny holes could grasp just how utterly fucking distasteful this sort of idea is.

    I remember Galliano doing this about 20yrs ago, the models all wearing junky looking necklaces made up of used Champagne corks. What a hoot it must be for the 1% to spend vast amounts of money on such bullshit. How thoroughly depressing to be so detached from humanity.

    Hahaha, transcendent force, my ass. For some strange reason the fashion writers produce THE most pompous, pretentious, full of shit prose ever. As for Jona – he/she deserves to be kicked out to the street with a stapled tongue, sheepskin rug and absolutely nothing else but a few pencils to sell (an idea from a SF book, can’t remember which one, apologies to the author). Then he/she can go on a quest, in multiple landscapes.

    I’m with Cricket9. Brilliant.

  7. Suebob says:

    Maybe the following was covered in sprigs of parsley. You never know.

  8. I thought everyone knew better these days? Would I be right in saying Jona is probably some over indulged Gen Y prat who considers those less fortunate as nothing more than chimps in a zoo?

  9. Sister Wolf says:

    Madam Restora – I believe you have nailed it.

  10. Yes, Zoolander spoofed homeless chic with its Derelicte (say with a French accent) collection. And more earnestly, the designer Erin Wasson noted how “homeless people have the best style.” Sigh.

    Erin Wasson – another serious candidate to have her tongue stapled, so we wouldn’t hear these inanities anymore.
