He never would have imagined you would like him. You never would have imagined he would like you. And yet somehow, he became Daddy, and you became his most beautiful, most precious Babygirl.

Yoongi doesn’t hate grocery shopping.

He just “highly dislikes” it.

It’s Sunday and he’s at the supermarket, pushing his cart along amidst the rest of the various other shoppers. In front of him the fruit and vegetable displays are a hodge-podge of colors, but Yoongi can’t help but feel absolutely nothing.

All he’s thinking about is you.

Because I'm A Wild Animal: Affordable Wes Anderson Inspired Looks II

Damn, coming up with Wes Anderson looks is harder than I thought. When it comes to the costuming in Wes Anderson movies it’s always very specific and in many cases custom made. What you’ll also notice is that if an outfit is a bit more traditional, let’s say a blazer and trousers for instance, it has very specific details that can make it harder to replicate or even catch the vibe for. Because the outfit (like most of Anderson’s work) is defined by the details. So this is my attempt going forward. This is what I can throw together based on what’s currently in my closet.

Mr. Bunce from The Fantastic Mr. Fox

Sport Coat: Topman ($110)
Shirt: H&M ($25)
Knit Tie: J Crew Factory ($15)
Chinos: Levi’s 511 Trousers ($45)
Boots: Jeffrey Tyler ($75)
Watch: Momentum Square One ($200)
Belt: J Crew Factory ($15)

Total : $485($285 without the watch.)

Whole lot of earth tones in the Fantastic Mister Fox. I actually don’t really wear that much brown so this was a pretty difficult movie to put together. I’m going to watch it again soon so I may come up with another look from that later.

(Not Really) A Fantastic Mr Fox Look

Jacket: J Crew Factory ($50)
Sweater: Polo Ralph Lauren ($40)
Shirt: H&M ($15)
Herringbone Tie: H&M ($25)
Jeans: J Crew Factory Driggs ($45)
Boots: Steve Madden ($150)
Watch: Orient Ray ($150)
Sunglasses: $10

Total: $485 ($335 without the watch)

So this is not really based on a specific outfit from the film. It’s more based on the overall feel. But I think it has the color palette and textures to fit into the movie. I can see one of the characters possibly wearing something like this.

Clothes Make the Man

I have previously analyzed how the colors of both Elsa and Anna’s clothes represent parts of their personalities. But since making that, I have realized that the same can be said for the clothes of both Kristoff and Hans.

Throughout much of the movie, Kristoff wears his traditional Sami ice harvester clothes. While almost all of Anna’s clothes are brightly colored to reflect her cheery, vibrant personality, Kristoff’s clothes are darker in color: gray with some brown, and very faded. The darkness of them are primarily meant to reflect his cranky, grumpy, and closed off nature. But they have other meanings of his personality as well:

  • Gray is commonly interpreted as a neutral, detached, and depressing color, and it can also attribute to loneliness and isolation. These definitions are perfect to describe Kristoff, because he grew up in the mountains with relative isolation from and little contact with humans, and had only Sven and the trolls for company. He is a loner who has purposely chosen not to interact with humans, having the belief that he can’t trust them.
  • Brown is friendly, warm, and approachable. This does not seem to be what Kristoff is like at first, given that he doesn’t like people and acts very rude and unfriendly towards Anna when they meet. But then as he grows close to her, he slowly reveals himself to be a genuinely friendly person. It also displays him as being an honest, genuine, practical, and hardworking man.

Even when he is wearing the same clothes, Kristoff’s personality is also reflected in different scenes based on how much of his clothes cover his body. In this sense, he wears many (mental) layers/walls that are gradually removed when his true nature begins to show. He goes from putting on a mask of hostility and gruffness to becoming very kind, awkward, and shy. Such scenes that best describe this transition include the following:

  • When Kristoff and Sven are shown in Arendelle the day of the coronation, Kristoff is wearing a fairly dark blue shirt. Because he is alone with his best friend, Kristoff doesn’t hide his real, good (and somewhat silly) side. He plays along with Sven by pretending to talk for him before they share a carrot.
  • When he first meets Anna, Kristoff is almost completely covered in snow and frost, since he just returned from the mountains. He looks like a big scary snow monster and only his eyes are visible. Not interested in making small talk, he acts very gruff and rude to both Anna and Oaken.
  • While in the barn with Sven, Kristoff is not wearing his mittens or hat. This reflects the idea that part of his mask has come off. Again, he speaks for Sven, and is shown to be comfortable being himself when they are together. But then he returns to his hostile mode when Anna enters the barn.
  • As he races Anna back to Arendelle, Kristoff willingly puts his hat on her head. This represents him removing one of his layers and starting to reveal his real, caring self. He doesn’t care what happens to him; all that matters is that Anna gets safe and warm again. He knows his hat may not help very much, but he wants to at least try for her sake.
  • In the final scene, even while in Anna’s presence, Kristoff is being his true self, including showing his gratitude for the sled. He becomes awkward and shy when he expresses his desire to kiss her. But still, it’s part of who he really is. The shirt he is wearing is a softer blue than the one he previously wore, showing that Anna helped uncover his soft side.

On the other hand, Hans’s clothes are a completely different matter. In being a prince, of course, his clothes are much more formal with detailed designs and several different colors, though some are more prominent than others. When he is first introduced, Hans’s princely appearance is meant to deceive viewers into thinking that he is another heroic Disney prince. This is especially because, unlike many Disney villains, Hans does not come off as the villain at the beginning. Even though his clothes do have some dark colors, there is not an excessive amount of one single color to make him look like the villain, along with the fact that he does not have dark physical features (including his facial expressions or hair color).

  • Hans’s coronation suit is the outfit that best disguises his true colors. It primarily consists of a white (cream shade) blazer, pants, and stockings.
  1. White is known for being a color of perfection, as well as purity, innocence, and wholeness. (His blazer also has some gold on it, which represents the wealth and luxury he has in being a prince.) The joke here is that this suit’s color helps fool us into initially thinking that Hans possesses all of these traits, that he is a picture perfect prince. But because he is actually evil, and evil is traditionally represented by dark colors, it is very ironic for him to wear white.
  2. This suit also reflects Anna’s warmer-colored clothing; in other words, he wears a bright-colored outfit just like she does. It is part of his plan to reel her in by making her think that they are so alike, so it would mean they are perfect for each other.
  3. White is also the color of new beginnings, and this relates to the fact that Hans wears this outfit when he and Anna sing “Love Is An Open Door,” in which he discreetly sings his desire to take over Arendelle and become its new ruler.
  • The coloring book Journey to the Ice Palace says that Hans is a naval officer, and even his traditional formal attire, which prominently consists of navy blue trousers, black boots, and a light gray-and-black blazer with patterns, is reminiscent of a naval uniform (a reference to royal siblings of lower birth traditionally entering military service). During his first introduction with Anna, he wears it during the day, when there is light, symbolizing how it helps make him appear good. When Hans reveals his true nature, he is once again wearing his normal formal suit. As he reveals his entire plan, he puts out all the light sources, turning the room dark and giving his clothes a darker shade, symbolically reflecting his inner “dark” nature.
  • While he is in control of the kingdom, to protect himself from the harsh winter, Hans wears a dark gray cloak, which has wavy patterns and a purple interior. In his traditional attire, Hans’s blazer is also gray, but a much lighter shade. When gray grows closer to white, it becomes more lively and illuminating. This is illustrated of how Hans isn’t set up to be the villain when he first appears onscreen. However, when gray becomes darker, it grows closer to black and becomes more dramatic and mysterious. Hans wears the cloak while still continuing his charade, including after he reveals his real nature to Anna only. He wears it as he is about to kill Elsa, which makes it is the best moment to show how its dark shade reflects his true, evil nature.

As a side note, while Hans’s clothes, particularly his white coronation suit, initially give the impression that he is the hero of the film, at the same time, the Duke of Weselton’s clothes help give the impression that he is the main villain. This appears to be supported by his black coat and boots, because black is the traditional color of evil. However, the fact that the Duke is merely the red herring is symbolically (and literally) represented with the red sash that hangs from his left shoulder, the red shirt underneath his coat, and red cuffs at the end of his coat’s sleeves. Lastly, his gray pants symbolize the fact that he really is a neutral character, rather than an evil one.

1ST PAT-RN SS16 Pitti Preview

Having a chance to stop by 1st PAT-RN is always a pleasure during my walkabout around Pitti. The human aspect that the event presents, has allowed me to build strong relations with people I admire, to the point where they are no longer just the designers of that particular brand, but true friends as well. This is just the case with Cristiano, Silvia and Alessio the creative trio behind 1st PAT-RN. Our shared enthusiasm by the reshaping of vintage and Ivy garments and the military universe brought us together 3 years ago and hopefully, for years to come. 

The unique mix of inspirations on which the trio works is now highlighted by distinct lines: the timeless preppy inspired International Trad, the Italian and European Workwear and finally the military grade Fatigue Garments. This unlikely combination results in a merging of influences that seamlessly blend the boundaries between Ivy League and workwear, in a way that combines aesthetic with functionality. In fact, this practical nature of Ivy style where particular garments served different purposes or occasions, is remarkably portrayed in 1st PAT-RN’s approach to its creations. A striking example is their take on the traditional 2 button blazer made from a trademark knit twill, an interpretation that conveys the blazer as an everyday, go-to jacket.

For SS16, the brand established a series of ongoing models and lines, set to maintain a continuity throughout collections, with subtle changes to pattern, trimmings, color and fabrics. Regarding the latter, the “Hopsack di Maglia” is a debut, while the use of raw and over-dyed selvedge indigo denim makes a comeback. As usual, the color palette is limited to the authentic shades used in the original garments, presenting a carefully curated selection of navy, off-white, olive, beige and steel grey. Last but not least, the buttons are made from real horn, bone and corozo, with a special brass version produced in the same suppliers of the Italian navy.

anonymous asked:

Luua as a cute Kohai & Vain as her cool Senpai? Ps. Would Luua be in a blazer or traditional seifuku? ^^

Luua is a blazer type, fits her body shape more/better and 
gives her a more feminin look than the seifuku so- 100% blazer!

Vain & Luua have an age gap of 7 I bet Vain haven’t passed a few 
classes plus  his grades are pretty shitty since he doesn’t give a fuck about school, doesn’t come to school. he always starts fights and sleeps during lessons so that’s why Luua is giving him private tutoring to help him 
pass his exams-
