The self that signals

What signals are you giving out? Everything from your wardrobe to your attitude goes on display in to convince or dupe others of who you really are. #gif #selfawareness

What signals are you giving out? Everything from your wardrobe to your attitude goes on display in to convince or dupe others of who you really are.

Led by imaginings, you chase the perfect external note. But sometimes the creation of the ideal self sends you in the wrong direction.

Trying to change from outside in, the internal battle succumbs to inauthenticity. Acting like somebody you’re not is exhausting.

By listening to yourself, like a trampoline you can bounce off and out real such signals. Once you free yourself from the false expectations that may be limiting, the world becomes your oyster.

The most fascinating designer on the planet

“The genie is out of the bottle. I’m never going to be niche again. I’m commercial establishment. I would love to be weird and unattainable again. That’s what I wanted to be—to live in poverty but be like Giacometti.” Rick Owens

What a dataset of colors, rather a barcode of colors.

Mr. Rogers sweaters started off neon vibrant in the 70s, red dominated the 90s, and the palette got darker as time went on.

And his thoughts were just as beautiful.

Helmut Lang became the first fashion brand to advertise on New York City taxicabs in 1998. Such spots were typically reserved for Broadway shows.

Twenty years later, the brand is bringing the mobile ads back on 275 New York City taxis along with an exclusive globally-promoted taxi hoodie on its website.

Check out the video of the Hong Kong cabbie sporting the new top.
