If you know me well enough, or if you’ve been at least checking my Self-portraits for the past couple of months, then you have probably noticed that I wear slim shirts, slim suits, slim T-Shirts, and skinny jeans.
But all of this has changed recently.
First, I bought two oversized coats which I’ve been addicted to*, and I just love how they keep me warm when the temperature drops down.
Then, I came across the Yohji Yamamoto store in Rue Cambon last week, and let’s say that love at first sight is an euphemism. I knew this brand before, but you have to see the clothes in person. Yamamoto’s oversized/wide shirts are so eccentric, but still, they’re the most beautiful ones I have ever seen.
And if all of this wasn’t enough, I read the Wall Street Journal’s article on wide-leg trousers the last week, and it was official: I decided to start my quest for the perfect wide-leg trousers, the ones that are perfect to wear and that don’t make you look like you come out of a 90’s rap song.
I decided that I’ll wear them with a slim white shirt, or else I might look a garbage bag.
The same trend is hitting the feminine world. Not that I am particularly enthusiastic about women’s fashion, but if you come across Beige Renegade’s or Margaret Zhang’s Instagram accounts, you will see what I’m talking about.
But at the end, it’s just about a fashion cycle, and in the next few years, everything oversized will be outdated. But seriously, who would have thought that the Wall Street Journal actually has fashion articles in it?
*Literally, I’ve been wearing my Zara oversized coat every single day of the week, and I don’t even take it off inside
