So take refuge at Waterloo, a t-shirt label and store set-up by three friends in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Waterloo's t-shirts are tributes to classic indie films, and ledge musicians and bands, and the prints are completely unique, so you won't see every Joe and...Jenny on the street wearing the same t-shirt as you. And speaking of Joe and Jenny, they do come in guy and girl styles so you can choose what you want, and if you want to match, you can. The lovely people at Waterloo have also created a special 10% coupon for you guys, just use theapathist when checking out.
(I have serious hair and t-shirt envy for this lady right here. The Amelie tee is my personal favourite.)
I heart Seu Jorge. I heart Wes Anderson. Therefore, I heart this 'Life Aquatic' t-shirt.
PS. These t-shirts will probably stir up feelings of envy amongst your friends and complete strangers. The Apathist takes no responsibility for any cat-fights or riots instigated by your cool new Waterloo t-shirt. 11 comments
I'm going through a sheer period. By sheer, I mean sheer shirts, which sounds a little bit Alicia Silverstone circa '95 but is actaully more Anne-Valerie Hash circa '07. I couldn't ever wear a sheer shirt without something over/under it, so the way AVH presented them on the runway was perfect. She's also apparently bringing back the spat (for the 'how to' on wearing spats, check Kingdom of Style out), and the curve on those shoes would temporarily make me lose my aversion to feet...in fact, I'd probably lament the fact that I couldn't walk on my hands to wave my shoes around in everyone's face.
Alber Elbaz at Lanvin made me pretty damn happy when I saw the Spring 08 Menswear collection, I'm loving the layered grey tones and the different shapes work so well, from the slouchy jackets and wider-cut trousers, to the more fitted blazers and the skinnier trousers tucked into the socks. I'm especially in love with bow-ties at the moment.
We're now a week away from what will probably be the biggest book release in the history of print. Remember to pre-order your copy, otherwise on Monday morning, you'll be the only one who doesn't know what's going on when everyone's talking about it at work next to the photocopier. Can you say social outcast?
My blog won't let me type in a title because it is being childish. If this post had a title, it would be, "Only Slightly Covetous." I hope this isn't a recurring problem, I like having actual titles rather than just the date.
On another note, is anyone else enjoying the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue advert on TV at the moment as much as I am?
And does anyone else text/call people in the same house so you don't have to shout or actually go to them? I think I'm getting freaking lazy.
EDIT: Thanks to my first comment-giver for the title tip! It worked!18 comments
After a weekend spent in a stupor, doing nothing but watching movies and eating popcorn, I can firmly say that Celine and Julie Go Boating is one of my favourite films. Directed by Jacques Rivette, it stars Juliet Berto and Dominique Labourier as two friends (Celine, who works as a magician in a small club and Julie, who is a librarian) who find themselves strangely embroiled in a surreal parallel world via a mysterious house in a Parisian suburb that they take turns to go into. In the house, they 'become' nurses to a young child in the house, and they have to keep replaying through the same day in order to progress further and learn more about the people living there and what is going on. Their friendship starts bizarrely but develops in an amusing and natural way. The runtime is about 3 and a half hours so you need a little bit of patience to watch it but it's worth it. The first time I saw it, I was so completely hypnotised by their strange lives and antics, I bought it the next day, and Julie Berto and Dominque Labourier are just so perfect in it.
