#1919 My sole acquisition in six weeks of travel is this little braided strip of leather

My motto is to own as little as possible so that if you need to leave somewhere quickly you can throw everything into a suitcase and run. Thinking I was incredibly clever, I way underpacked in the smarmiest way possible for three weeks in Europe, but the joke’s on me on this occasion – I only have two pairs of pants, a couple of shirts, a few tees and two sweaters here in Paris. But to the point of this post: the only thing I’ve acquired since I left home is this friendship bracelet – it was given to me by Bryan Boy on my final day in Milan. I am supremely detached when it comes to personal possessions, but I’ve become quite attached to this little braided strip of leather. It hasn’t left my wrist in three weeks. Who knows – maybe I’m getting sentimental in my old age. He aha te mea nui? He tangata. He tangata. He tangata.

    Once again i find your posts contradictory, when you give us a taste of your reality (which is so much more ..um realistic!?) it makes all your ‘brilliant’ ‘fresh’ ‘better than ever’ show commentary sound naff..

    However this is what I like to see. When you (or anyone) asks
    themselves, ‘what do I actually want ‘, not ‘whats available?’ not ‘what
    does everyone else want/have?’.  That’s what fashion should be (and now
    actually is) driven by: ordinary people NOT cut and paste media hype.

    I (Greg) like your blog. It’s interesting you are so keen on a capsule, uniform wardrobe. I am probably at the very other end of the spectrum. That is what is so great about fashion for me, everyones unique interpretation.

    Translaion: What is the most important thing? It is people. It is people. It is people.
    He aha te mea nui? He aha te mea nui o te ao? Maku e ki atu, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata.

    I love this blog entirley!
