This post is probably the one that I've had in mind for the longest. I've been speaking on the issue to those around me and almost everyone I come into contact with for some time now and I think that this picture is the perfect depiction to assist me in getting my point across.
Members of my generation:
You have been mislead, what you have been taught to cherish means absolutely nothing. The items and ideals that you have grown to hold dear to you mean nothing in comparison to the bigger picture of life. I'm only able to sit here and type about this because I too was victim to this brain washing. About a month ago someone seen me sneezing in my LV handkerchief and actually said "I respect you". I had mixed feelings about it, did he "respect me" because I understand that it means nothing at all or did he "respect me" because he thought that was so fly?
We have all put too much emphasis on clothing and labels. I do not wish to ignore the prestige of the fashion house because the designers and creative directors have worked extremely hard over the years to establish the name in the fashion world. However I do have a problem with the fact that people are using the labels to recreate themselves into something that they are not. You are not taking out the time to really get in touch with yourself and find out who you really are but you use the fact that you have this article of clothing to make yourself seem cooler. The people you look up to are just as confused as you are; we are all human.
This picture represents the free minds of my generation. Sorry for those that are excluded because I know first hand that there are many more but this was a spur of the moment thing.
Own the clothes, don't let the clothes own you. Be yourself.
