Look Mom – no clue!
Maybe Danish designer Wood Wood had a different junior high school experience than I did. Perhaps that’s why their 2009 Autumn/Winter collection seems not only to reconnect with but to amplify the awkwardness of personality and incohesiveness of style which so typified that period for me and many other complete losers I know.
And they are by all means entitled to their nostalgia. And their obsession with workboots would seem practical and tough if not for the Gap models wearing them. However I should take this opportunity to withdraw the projection of my own mortification at having my outfits picked out by my mother – I’m sure these young men are picking up at recess like nobody’s business.
