STRIKE

A few things of importance.

ONE.

I’m sorry this has sucked at being a fashion blog for the past few weeks; college, as I mentioned before, both requires comfortable shoes (boo) and affords few photographic opportunities other than the photobooth pictures I sneak in the library when I’m supposed to be reading about the use of montage in early Russian silent films…

[Exhibit A:]

At least I’m wearing my Rick Owens jacket in these pictures… it’s seriously the best item of clothing ever. In absolutely every way. Here are some slightly less sucky pictures…

Photo 28Excuse the faces… it’s quite difficult to take a decent picture whilst pretending you’re doing something more productive than attempting to take a decent picture in photobooth. Trust me.

Okay… ONWARD to number TWO.

Every one of you should, if you so desire, download Clipse’s unreleased first album, Exclusive Audio Footage (yes, yes, the obsession continues. Don’t judge me). I’m in love. Seriously, it’s a classic.

THREE.

The bright side of being in college is that I get to watch *incredible* films FOR HOMEWORK for my Soviet and Russian Film class. This weekend, it was Eisenstein’s “Stachka” (or “Strike,” as it’s known in English). It was definitely one of the most visually captivating and stunning films I’ve ever seen, and I found its stark, raw aesthetic quite sartorially inspiring…

StachkaHave I mentioned that the early Soviet period is pretty much my favorite in terms of graphic design? STUNNING.

It was hard to find good screen caps (and I couldn’t take any of my own because I had to watch it in the library), but…

strike2 I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. These shots don’t even do it justice. If you have Netflix, apparently it’s available there…

FOUR.

Sorry this has been so longgggg. I applaud you for making it to the end of my ramblings. You can really tell how much I’m trying to avoid reading right now. BETTER PICTURES COMING SOON I PROMISE!!
