Remembering when my reaction to a picturesque moment like this one was far more existential than “oh my shit, I have to (insta)gram that.” (Taken with instagram)
It’s difficult not to have a small crush on anyone who happily quotes, “if it looks like a vagina, then its probably couture”. Through the infinite amount of beige content being blogged and reblogged by today’s ‘new editors’, there’s the occasional show stopper. Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner. Meet Leandra Medine, the (sometimes) lady behind cult site The Man Repeller and heavy weight champion of relevant irreverent man repelling recommendations and fashion opinion.
With more commercial collaborations than one can count, it’s clear her content has struck a chord with her forever swelling dedicated audience of tumblr, instagram, twitter, blog, slash every other digital orifice bank of followers. She doesn’t take herself to seriously, she has a point of view and she can write (well), winning.
When she’s not ‘outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex’ in ‘such garments including but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls, shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs’, you’ll find her enthusiastically propping up the local economy, favo(u)ring such brands as Proenza Schouler, and occasionally turning to the EU for support, insert Isabel Marant here.
One savvy lady, if you’re not following her this week, I’m sure you will be next.
