Mea Culpa – More Awesomeness from Perth’s ZSADAR

I seem to have missed this while I was writing in Toronto.  If you don’t know about ZSADAR you really should as Shane Newton pushes the boundaries as all truly great fashion should.

One can speak of the human subject in universal terms.

Not made for man but for mankind, ZSADAR pushes boundaries by challenging aesthetic interpretations of conventional menswear.

ZSADAR’s experimental approach constructs raw and muted collections: minimalist, yet meticulously detailed.

The natural lines of the body are referenced through slim-cut fits and draping which contribute to a dark and androgynous mood.

ZSADAR moves beyond conventional approaches to Australian menswear with designs that have international appeal.

Add him on twitter at @ZSADAR . It’s important to support young artists who challenge the conventional.

Inspiring and disturbing all at once.

So a Twitter friend pointed me to this interesting video of a young poet discussing  being young, black and gay which, in itself,  is an interesting viewpoint to hear. I am sure it is the sort of thing that would make a lot of people stop and think and might even inspire other young, black LGBT people.  This is the video:

What I find disturbing is the horrifying hatred and ignorance in most of the comments on the original site that I viewed the video on. If you have the stomach for it and better blood pressure control than me you can view them here. Simply sickening.
