The Monkey Shirt

Leave it to Miuccia to take an apostle of non-color into the bright side. Her secret weapon: monkeys.
long arms like a chimp’s (monkey print shirt by Prada)
There was just something so compelling about that Prada spring 2011 show—in the convoluted mix of colors and curlicues, and creatures, all shrouded in the haze and heady daze of a 1920′s Cuban burlesque club of the future—that I had to have a souvenir of that collection. Indulgent wordplay aside, for a collection so garishly colorful, it had a sense of history and an almost-darkness that made it infinitely more intriguing than today’s throw-away color-blocks.

gargoyle-gray monkeys with pink bananas swinging upon ornate wooden cornices mounted on a Tigger-striped papered wall. Note the tone-on-tone fabric buttons, very much appreciated.
These multi-hued brown vintage lace-ups look like something a patron of that 1920′s Cuban nightclub would wear, only they’re from nearly halfway around the world. (vintage lace-ups from Latvia)
I thought the curvy lines on my Y-3 backpack echoed the curlicues on the shirt’s print.
