Ute Ploier has been making
a name for herself in the menswear market. After starting her own label in 2003,
she was awarded the 2004 menswear award at the Hyères Festival. Her current collection ‘Time-loopers’ is said to
reflect on the modern mans armour – role play, social connotations and issues
of masculinity. I just like her Morrissey t-shirt.
Given the whole
Morrissey vs NME thing, it’s pretty risqué at the moment to even wear a Mozza
t-shirt. People might confuse me with an old ex-pat who spends his time lamenting
the lack of English accents in Knightsbridge. Morrissey’s version of England is
probably filled with monocle-wearing man with bowler hats shouting ‘Pip Pip’ at
each other whilst stopping off to play a game of croquet before getting back to
the old lady. The shirt is nice though.
