Menswear fashion week March 23-31
He walked around the shadowy green room, tapping dexterous fingertips against his pale chin...
"What to wear, what to wear..."
Most days, his options felt limited. There wasn't much choice, although, perhaps this was for the best in his line of work. It had to be practical, had to hold all he might need. His vanity wasn't much, but it was there. To get into the places he had to, it helped to look the part, to blend with the fashionable crowd. Of course, once his work was done, he had to be able to get out again, he needed his tools.
Everything he needed was to hand. Pulling on the black combat trousers, their thick material would give some protection should he need it, and of course, their many pockets were invaluable. They passed as regular streetware, noone would ask any questions, and for this job, security weren't expecting anything... They wouldn't be checking too close. Patting the pockets, he felt the handle of the folded switchblade, the innocuous wooden pegs in another, the curl of thin wire, the lighter, his smokes..
Glancing in the mirror he eyed the face staring back at him from his chest, not so smart to have such a distinguishing mark, but he didn't care. He wasn't planning on getting caught, and the the kanji looked hot over his muscled abdomen. Working feet into the heavy but flexible work boots, he bent to lace them tightly. Straightening again, running a hand through his hair, styling it just so, he slid into the thick woolen knit jacket, its shape would comfortably hide what he was planning to take. Catching the fastening, and adjusting the collar before heading out into the night.
This week is Menswear Fashion Week, I was hoping to create a great look to show here, preferably made up from gifts available at the Menswear event itself. Admittedly, I'm not used to shopping for male items, when I've tried in the past, I've always been a bit disappointed about what was on offer - at least in the price range I could stretch to for photo set ideas. The event itself has some great stores, different styles on offer, covering skins and teeny pants to whole outfits. The underwear fashion show last night was something to behold! There are some free or 1L gifts in the stores, but not many, those that there are match the styles of the stores, not necessarily each other, so no full freeish look here unfortunately. But bits here and there add up!
