this and that



i rarely get inspired by editorials, especially in a way where i think how i should get this and this and wear this and this is a certain way. but this picture really makes me want to buy a high-waisted wool skirt in black so i can wear my raf simons shirt (yes, i do own this shirt) the way it’s styled here. simply amazing!


i realise i am – and have always been – a person who likes to start “from blank”. and this is, i guess, how je ne suis pas comme des garçons because eigengrau.

Eigengrau (German: “intrinsic gray”), also called Eigenlicht (“intrinsic light”), dark light, or brain gray, is the color seen by the eye in perfect darkness. Even in the absence of light, some action potentials are still sent along the optic nerve, causing the sensation of a uniform dark gray color.
Eigengrau is perceived as lighter than a black object in normal lighting conditions, because contrast is more important to the visual system than absolute brightness. For example, the night sky looks darker than eigengrau because of the contrast provided by the stars.
Eigengrau can be consciously controlled and turned into shapes such as circles and crosses.

i guess i changed, my views, my aesthetics.. and even though i still love comme des garçons dearly, i believe that “eigengrau” is closer to my point of view right now. i guess you can expect to see/read, more or less, the same things that you used to see/read over at my previous blog, yet from a point of view that is a little different, that is a little closer to who i am now.

ps: i am in love with this raf simons archive skull necklace, i never want to take it off!
