I finally got a hold of one of the shiny triangle shirt from Paradigm Shift's latest collection, SHINY. Since the designers, Karl and Mike, are both my close friends, I got to see the sneak peek weeks before they released. I was also in the shoot although the only help I did was to eat the pizza and look pretty.
From Paradigm Shift: An attempt to combine 2 opposing elements: Bold silver metallics and grey drapey garments were condensed to form this collection. With a specific focus on shirts, jackets, waistcoats and pants, an elaboration of different and usual forms , fabric and silhouettes are presented. Entitled Shiny, our fascination with hardwares and metallics has translated in creating a new measure of fun and transformable clothes, making each piece a personal experience... an extension to one's body.
I love how they combined their forever aesthetic of drapes with metallic silver sheets. It feels like Japanese street space wear. I tried to achieve a galactic space skateboarder look. Here's what happened:
Yeah I know you can't really skate with creepers unless you want to stumble and fall all the time. But what the hell.
