Window shopping at Oki-ni...

I was wondering where I was going to get me some of those beautiful grey Nom Des Guerre Redwings so I went for a look at Oki-ni and whadda you know?
So while I was there I thought I would take a look around and the following are what we shall call sub prime purchases. Stuff I couldn't really afford but getting credit would be easy.

Raf x Eastpak
McQueen pearlised belt with the beautiful silver buckle
The Margiela blank cowboy belt.
The knitted McQueen tie
I am still holding out for the sick Lime Green Half Cabs, but these grey badboys are a close second
Mandals Son! I could see me chilling riviera side in these Jil Sanders.

I love the shear simplicity of these Jil Sander apron Derby's. They look so comfortable.
Not many people can do hobo elegance anywhere near as well as Maison Martin Margiela.
And let's finish where we started, with a pair of badass grey boots, this time channeling the entire westcoast pioneering ideal. Maison Martin Margiela again. Who else?

Speaking of Love...

Brothers and Sisters...

Mr. Hare took time to visit the Sibling showroom in Paris and take a close look at their incredible knitwear. My favourite was this cashmere jumper embroidered with tiny glass beads. Totally channeling Carrington Colby Dynasty chic except when you look closer they are black rats with red glass beady eyes. Totally weird enough for Mr. Hare.
I may splurge.

Low End Theories

In 1991 there were Air Jordans and Tribe called Quest's album Low End Theory. That was all I needed that year.

To the effect of nothing, effective fronting
is what I don't allow so let me tell you something
I am a bon-a-fide
Not too modest and not a lot of pride
Soon to have a ride and a home to reside
if my momma is sick I'm by her bedside
Used to watch the show on channel 4 called Riptide
Wash my wears in-side, cause it's too damn cold
out-side, that's how the runnings go
If there ain't no dough then there ain't no show
So take your roly poly fat promoter (ass)
to the Chemical Bank, and get my cash
If you wanna see the people scream and laugh
You best Quest you ass, Quest you ass real fast
Cause I don't wanna see em, start buckin
Throwin chairs in the air while you be duckin
what what? Don't step to me with that
If you promotin the show make sure it ain't wack

Or else I'm leaving ("let me tell you")
I'm leaving ("let me tell you")
I'm leaving ("let me tell you")
Your wack show

First verse of 'Rap Promotor' the heaviest track according to Mr. Hare.

Old shoe shuffle

Check out this marvelous feature on ACL about old American shoe stores. you can almost smell the cardboard.

Ponystep Paris @ Regines

The full details and sequential accuracy are hazy but Mr. Hare does remember
The view from Justus' apartment.

This Guy!The Awesome DJSibling Jumpers

Anouks leggings (and her eyes).

And the kitchen.

More stuff i'm digging...

In no particular order.How fierce is this outfit? I shall discuss the boots later in detail but Mr. Hare is strangely uncomfortable with just how fascinated I am by this look.

Don't really know what I like about this Miharayasuhiro offering...I think it's the boots and the freefalling layers.
Unlike this look from Viktor & Rolf where I know it is all about the Billie Jean socks.
The kid is not my son!

Sometimes it is all about the shape and this oh so elegant, simple look from Hermes is calling me. Like wise the look below.

These two just put a big smile on my face.

I wish I could remember a clever line from Buffalo 66 to put here, but I can't. I hope to cause trouble next winter looking like this.

Angles, angles, angles!

I want this Givenchy scarf.

Mr. Hare is a simple guy who likes a bit of elegance he doesn't need to be precious about. Hence why Lanvin keeps making it on to my blog.
