GIA SEO’S PICKS:

“Favorite piece in Oak right now would have to be the slouch romper in black. I love the fleece-lining and the zipper that falls just above the knees. Not only would it look good with any given leather jacket, it also provides warmth in a cold New York winter while keeping a naturally comfortable cool. Paired with the Oak grey leather cap it reminds me of the street conscious, greasy haired, grungy skaters in Lords of Dogtown.”

“The wool version of the Drape Front Parka gets  me o____o. Not only does the offset zipper create a sense of delusion, but the cut of the jacket with its swoop hood constructs a look of devastation for anyone who does not already own this piece. To top it off, the asymmetrical hem gives to the balance of the jacket as a whole, and falls on the body like the crisp creases of a paper crane. A classic.”

Favorite Video:

“My favorite video is called “The Last Daydream” by Chris Milk. Most people reference life as something to survive, but this video reminds me that life is given day by day to those who want it.”

Favorite Image:

 “This image is a still from Alejandro Jodorowsky’s film “Holy Mountain.” This particular still for me embodies the cement walls that are monumental to each individual’s being, but also implies that even cement walls are penetrable with the fitting tools.”
