We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it."
The whole article sadly hits very close to home.
I never really get to show my appreciation for Marni because they don’t do traditional runway shows—which means I can’t Textbook them up. But nevertheless, I always love it. All the clothes are approachable but have that same “Shit, where did you get that?” quality. As per my usual opinion, the outerwear was tops (#2) and I would definitely pick up some of the separates. Maybe this year I’ll actually be able to afford something from them. Good show Marni.
