Sloane Peterson is an 80s babe. No doubt about it. She's got beautiful hair and was a Phoebe Cates-esque brunette beauty that balanced the goofy boyish charms of her costar characters, Ferris and Cameron. But one thing for sure has always been a little suspect: her outfits. WTF: Shorts with a too-thin western belt, with a white leather fringe jacket, with boots. It worked for her character I guess because it gave off a vibe that she was just too cool to give a fuck about what was considered cool in high school — plus she was dating Ferris Bueller, who was the most popular charming kid to ever wear a cheetah knit vest — but having said this, why would Nicolas Ghesquiere think this is a good enough reference for Louis Vuitton Spring 2017?
I swear it's the popularity and effect of the strange costumey Vetements vibe that is so goddamn popular right now creeping it's way into what usually is a really solid fashion display of outfits. I just don't get it.
With Vetements behind the wheel at Balenciaga I'm not really missing Alexander Wang's aesthetic for the old fashion house. The standout shows Alexander Wang did was that marble one with and the runway with mirrors and hair bows, but that's really about it. That being said, I'm not really loving this casual Vetements-Balenciaga either. The oversized hoodies and cool street wear is one thing for Vetements, but I kind of want something more for Balenciaga. Something that Nicolas Ghesquiere always seemed to deliver on. I'm not fashion critic, but I do know that when the above look is my favorite from Balenciaga I know the house is not really itself. Too expected. This could be a look from Chloé or Stella McCartney for all I care, with the fresh-faced baby doll model and the denim. Balenciaga, come back!

I can't wait to share the rest of the images from my shoot for 01 Magazine in collaboration with True & Co. The whole thing was shot by Jennifer Latour at my house in the East Bay this past weekend, which was major inspiration and motivation to get my house a) clean, b) furnished, and c) camera ready. Enjoy this one shot of me figuring out what to do with my hands while Redia adjusted my hair. Yay!
