Diane Keaton | Pin Obsessed!

 

SHE IS ON PINTEREST!

THE REAL DIANE KEATON IS ON PINTEREST!

As you may be aware, I am a big fan of Diane Keaton. She was my monthly Style Icon for September, and I was locked in her wardrobe. Her Pinterest is very quintessentially her; very stylistic and greyscale. Now we can see the world through her bespectacled eyes.

Sorry, I am going to be busy for the next few days.

September’s Style Icon | Diane Keaton

I have a terrible confession to make; I have only recently finally seen Annie Hall.

It is one of those movies that has been referenced so heavily in pop culture that it felt like I had already seen it. Until my sister called me and told me to watch it- that I would fall even more in love with Diane Keaton then I already was from The First Wives Club.

Within those 93 minutes, I was introduced to a bona fide fashion icon and a whole new way of looking at fashion. Modern androgyny typically highlights how masculinity has evolved to become more traditionally feminine. Jeffree Star and Eddie Izzard, men who adopted makeup and Ruby Rose and Héloïse Letissier are women whose style is classically masculine are good examples of this.

Diane Keaton, on the other hand, introduced us to the “Granddad-fashion”. Taking those key masculine accessories: a fitted blazer, a wide-brim, and those ties, her looks were quintessentially her. She reminds us that “fashion” is not about following trends or trying to dramatically push limits, but rather just pay attention to what is available around you. She quite literally wears the suits, the suits do not wear her.

I still can not figure out how Diane Keaton made a public school English teacher look so chic. Since watching Annie Hall, I am desperate for some cinched, high-waisted, over-sized slacks. That floor-length white coat from The First Wives Club? It’s been saved on my eBay searches for the past 5 years. To quote Man Repeller,

“She’s probably one of those people who can say the same thing you “literally just said,” that everyone ignored, and yet everyone internalises her remarks with the reverence of a royal bow”

But you do not need me to tell you.

Look at her!

Festival Style | Pride

Obviously, Pride has a deeper meaning than just a fabulous festival; it acts as both a celebration of modern progress, as well as a remembrance service to those who spent their lives advocating for LGBTQ+ rights. I am not the most qualified person to talk about that major facet of Pride. I am here to highlight the pretty clothes. If you want to learn more about Pride,  I will link some resources at the bottom of the post.

Please feel free to add any more information or resources in the comments!

4 Ways to Wear Zendaya’s Size Inclusive Collection | Elleyro:Styling

    Zendaya’s size-inclusive collection is one set to turn the fashion world on its head. The trail-blazing Disney star has famously clapped back against the industries seemingly natural inclination to body-shame and marginalize anyone not on-trend. Now she has put her work where her mouth is.
     Now she has put her work where her mouth is.
     Dayas by Zendaya is a size-inclusive collection, designed with different body shapes and different races. The minimalist set is predominantly made up of street-wear pieces, although with a twist of elegance that we have come to expect from Zendaya. Here are a few looks featuring some of my favourite pieces of the Dayas by Zendaya collection.

Is Fashion Finally Changing? Zendaya’s Size-Inclusive Collection.

The fashion world has always been accused of ignoring and devaluing the marginalised.
If your body shape was not on trend or your bank balance is abstract at best, then you may have felt excluded from the fashion industry.

01-charli-howard

Even those who fit within the mould are starting to feel the squeeze. Charli Howard, the 5-ft-8, size 2 model was fired from her agency for being ‘out of shape‘, a story common in the modelling industry. Howard argued that the limited sample sizes drives the exclusion facing the fashion industry. A black model will have different measurements from an asian model, who in turn is unalike to a white model’s proportions.

 

socialfeed-and-she-s-a-shoe-designer-daya-by-zendaya-available-online-nordstrom Well Zendaya is bucking the trend with her size-inclusive collection, Dayas by Zendaya.
Zendaya has famously drawn attention to the industry’s seemingly natural inclination to body shame, and has since been supported by many other influential women, including Gigi Hadid. Well now she is putting her designs where her mouth is.

Dayas by Zendaya is prominently a streetwear collection, with a smuttering of some smarter evening pieces. The collection averages between $40 – $160 per item (about £30 – £129), and with sizes ranging from 0-22. There is no gender specification outlined in the companies manifesto so although there are a couple of traditionally feminine silhouettes, there are also an equal number of androgynous items, allowing a certain psychological freedom for gender-fluid or non-binary people, as well as physical freedom for different body shapes.

Zendaya’s collection fits in with the anti-body-shaming murmurings across the industry. Maybe fashion should tailor itself to us, as after all, it is meant serve us. All of us. Hopefully this inclusion trend will extend itself to become the norm and we will all be able to express ourselves freely and inexpensively with the same designs and same collections.

 

 

 

 

 


 

Do you think fashion is becoming a more inclusive industry, or is this line just too small of a step to make a difference?

KENZOxH&M and how to actually wear it IRL

     The KENZOxH&M collab is only a matter of days away and if you’re anything like me, you’ve been scouring all the sneak peeks and interviews to catch a glance at all the beautiful clothes (before they all sell out and you contemplate eBay). When the official lookbook released last week, I could barely believe my luck. My Pinterest was a-ready and my calculator at hand.
     And oh boy, this collection is worth the hype. Say goodbye to boring gray hoodie with a printed logo,or sloppy imitations of trademark looks, KENZO’s creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have filled this collection with 5 key prints and colour combos, and has an eye-widening number of statement pieces from an oversized leather coat to a  bright pink, leopard print hat with a bow.
     Although the bright colours and complex prints are fun to look at, it is hard to see how such extravagant pieces could be ready-to-wear. I’ve cobbled together a couple of ways you could wear some of my favourite pieces in the KENZOxH&M collection whilst picking up some milk on your route home from work. Hope you like it!
