My friend Nancy and I were spending an afternoon strolling around SoHo and Nolita, and we spied these flyers posted on a wall. The quote “Shop Less, Think More” is credited to Vivienne Westwood, and the more densely written blue flyer lists a few fashion-related affirmations:
I’m a big believer in the power and significance of dress, and at the same time I’m resistant to most trends and dictates. I don’t really care that metal studs, or the color orange, or gladiator sandals, or studded orange gladiator sandals, are “must-haves” at any given moment. I won’t be wearing any of these trends, because I already know my own taste and I understand what will work for me and for my life. (But will I buy another black dress, or another rose-tinted lipstick? You can bet on it.)
Now that I’ve checked, it turns out that these flyers are guerilla ads for the book Fashion Manifesto: The Guide for the Style Savvy by Sofia Hedstrӧm and Anna Schori. I haven’t seen this book yet, but I’m curious.
