This is an important astrological PSA. Tomorrow, the moon will be at its closest point to the earth, AND, it will be a full moon. This means tomorrows night will be insanely beautiful with an extra big, bright moon. Pause and look up around the beginning of nightfall and behold.
And now, a literal clothing connection. I first noticed this collection on geometricsleep, and then was reminded of it today on Style Bubble.
Jeremy Laing is a self-taught designer based in Toronto who sharpened his skills as an apprentice to Alexander McQueen. I'm intrigued by his work. I would love to save enough money to have either the last dress, above, or the black jacket/tunic above that. Each piece is immensely wearable and strange. This grunge hair and makeup might be getting a little overplayed, and other looks from Laing's collection too closely aligned with specific Alexander Wang or Acne looks. But so goes any trend.
The geometry of the cuts -- circles and varying angles that recall grade school work with the protractor -- combines perfectly with the draping in each of these looks. The long moon print gown is stunning. Ditto the circle-cut knit dress. Styling and a few nods to current trends aside, Laing's garments transcend trendiness because of their singularity, anonymity, and wearability. Now, which piece shall I attempt to save for and hunt down in the next season? (Dreaming.)
