frayed jeans / john himmelfarb / silk bandanas / the western spirit

I’ve been interested, lately, in the western spirit as an aesthetic. the romantic (or simply romanticized) relations between liberty, individualism, and lawlessness–wildness.

jeans cropped rather than tailored, with cheeky raw hems. a bandana rather than a necklace. caramel-colored booties and cream-colored silk and a mussed mane of hair. felt fedoras, lucky rabbit feet, denim on denim.

there are little stories told through a certain vibe, a cohesive style, a mood or color story. this one evokes the prairie sky: marbled, with high winds, riding toward that big, pink-crested horizon atop a horse or a hog.
