Anja Rubik for Porter Magazine Fall 2014 Issue #4 via Net-A-Porter
One thing I used to do with my old blog, was post random inspiration. It could have been an image, editorial, runway look, or even a random object. However, because of my desire to post as much original content as possible, the section I dedicated to this was left behind with many other things when I started my new blog. Well my style mavens, because I am feeling inspired and also deem to be a source of inspiration to you, I am bringing it back.
So today, I am starting the week out right with this image from the Porter Magazine, Fall 2014 issue. I have to admit that this magazine is seriously changing the fashion landscape with its original content and the total lack of advertising that you usually find in many of your most beloved fashion publications. Not that that wont change as the publication grows, but for now, I prefer to pay the elevated price in exchange for more editorial content.
This particular image was so inspiring, because it combines two things I am absolutely enamored with at the moment- menswear and influences from the East. Kimono sleeves, belts that tie, and longer silhouettes have been on my mind for some time now and have even inspired a February trip to Thailand. However, I am also a menswear fanatic, so this image inspires by beautifully combining the best of both.
