I decided that in 2013 I will experiment more and try to say YES as often as I can. I wanted to include MEN in my blog and I even created a special category for them, but I didn't know where to start, what to write about. So when Superman offered to help with some topics, I said YES with excitement.
So, dear men all over the world, here is my first-ever-serious-men-topic:
Truth to be told, I didn't know what a goth ninja is. But I felt that it is something cool and it was about time someone would appreciate a ninja outfit-dark and mysteriours. started with the basic google search and with the first click, I instantly thought of Rick Owens. Ok, Rick Owens is THE goth ninja!
The Goth Ninja started somewhere in 2006, but the trend isn't related to a brand, designer or a celebrity. It somehow developped with the help of japanese street wear combined with high fashion designer items, in a natural, original way.
Goth Ninja essentials are: black, mystery, oversize, neutral tones, layering.
Wait, did you think it's that simple? Well, no it's not! All you need to add is:
-Confidence. How many men you know would pull off a skirt over skinny pants? without being drunk. or high. and still look extremely cool.
-Imagination. Black is the foundation of goth ninja looks, but a total black outfit can look totally boring. A juxtaposition of different textures like nylon, cotton, leather needs imagination.
-Talent. Are you still with me or did you already clicked the x button? The goth ninja is all about proportions. Wearing different proportions, unusual cuts and oversized items and still look light and slim (you know, like a ninja!) needs talent.
Bottom line, the goth ninja is not for everyone, that's for sure. But it's just so so cool. Even the name is just so so cool. If you're a girl and consider dating someone who dresses like that you may take in consideration that he may be getting all the looks and attention on the street! But I think the price is worth paying, after all you're next to a contemporary ninja on the streets, right??
Some good Inspiration you can find at designers like: Rick Owens, Maison Martin Margiela, Alexander Wang, The Viridi-anne.
The style is also super Tumblr Famous, you can find a lot of inspiration on Tumblrs like: fuckyeahgothninja , theycallmesickboy, peoplewearingrickowens.
