This little 1960s top was on sale at Mercy as well, and such a steal that I immediately had to 'gram it. Someone on Instagram commented that it looked very Louis Vuitton S/S '13—that's definitely what came to mind when I spotted it, but I loved the force and simplicity of that whole collection, so it was a no-brainer to pick up something so referential to it. But of course, that collection, which is new, is actually referencing the era contemporary to this shirt, which is old... so... there's a bit of fashion-reference-ouroboros occurring here, and I'm afraid the space-time continuum will collapse if I elaborate any further. Some critics don't seem very excited about the impending umpteenth wave of mod-inspired fashion, but graphic prints have always been near and dear to my heart, and they're so hard to find when the trend is in low tide. I could do a whole series on the multi-faceted nature of my love affair with checkerboard—oomph, I just freaking might.
After all, black + white = duh.
