Mode operandi

Beware the dictates of fashionTime: We tell time by dividing it into styles. (More on this later by popular request.)

Keeping time: We’ve chosen to replicate ourselves for the time-being. Or do we stretch ourselves onto the apparatus in the penal colony, then await branding with the word on the street?

Vox Populi: Calvin Klein is but one couturier spelunking the archive of modern humanity. Good sports wear. Bad sports bare.

No style: To be strictly objective and devoid of the affectations of style in terms of word-choice, ideas, political or social trends.

12 Observances:

  1. I will wear no more boring clothing.

  2. I will be true to myself, moment by moment.

  3. My words, thoughts, deeds and appearance will be in perfect alignment and never be the cause for gossip or embarrassment.

  4. I will be new.

  5. I will not be modern.

  6. Anything can be said in the Lingo Franca.

  7. Anyone can be anything in the Pax Kapital.

  8. I will be one with the Street and will try my best to find the right street.

  9. Some things you’ll always get used to.

  10. Every time I’m used I will be paid.

  11. Make way for intimacy.

  12. Recognise that to be seen is to be judged: Judge others, lest I be invisible.
