Now which ones of you all obsessively keep notebooks. Which ones of you all have a stack of stenopads 10” high that are all half-filled. It’s important information but there’s not necessarily a place for it yet. I peeled the plastic off a new five-pack of them this morning. More for the pile.
Sorry if you came to this blog expecting pictures of anything but a deranged mole-person.
Anonymous: What are the sash looking things that hang from the DRKSHDW pieces that Rick Owens makes?
Just hangtags. They’re grosgrain strips sewn onto the shirt with the DRKSHDW pentagram and logo stamped on them. Until a few seasons ago Rick used them on all the DRKSHDW garments, and when you actually purchased something the cardboard tag would be attached to those. If you look at the carrying straps on old DRKSHDW jackets, they’re actually just hangtags sewn onto the piece at both ends instead of just one.
It was your choice whether to cut them off or let them hang. Why anyone would get rid of those is your guess. Rick doesn’t do them anymore anyway, to my eternal dismay.

The text is the Mathilde Wesendonck composition Wagner chose for the fifth verse of his Wesendonck Lieder. There are five of these shirts, each printed with the English translation of the corresponding poem.
