We often hear this expression: "you're living in a fantasy world". This could mean the person being told by this statement finds it difficult to cope with reality so all he can do is withdraw himself from it and simply imagines a better world. For realists, this act is considered an escapist attitude, something that is not encouraged because we are taught that in life we have to face reality head on.
But I cant blame people who lose their will to fight/to live, because honestly it is very difficult to cope with a world where reality is harsh, cold,hurtful and most of all painful.
For myself, I dont have the luxury to live in fantasy world. To face reality, I must learn to be stronger, like a shield. Its a difficult task but I must do it.

About the look:
To be like a shield means to be like a superhero. Thats how I see myself in this look. Part insect, part alien, part sci fi, part bad ass but deep inside the same old geeky me.

Andre, I love the minimalism of this outfit - it just proves that you're able to make a powerful visual statement with very little. I see this as a wonderful (somewhat futuristic) reinvention of "black & white." You continue to inspire me, Andre! (:

ANDRE!There is an expression of "being on the shield", which means victory!!! you're "the shield" of your creativity. Creativity is your shield in the world of reality, "Knight of fashion"!!!!! This shield is heavy burden, but at the same time, it is your defense!!!! I love you !!!!!

Omg Andre i love this look and for so many reasons!!!!!! Its modern,edgy,minimal,sleek and chic!!!!!!! I love the volume of your trousers styled with the platform boots and that silver shirt is simply stunning and they way have layered un the black short sleeved shirt is a great play on lengths!!!! I love how you kept the accessories minimal but at the same time they make such a bold and strong statement !!!!! This is defiantly another favourite,though i probably say that like every time!!!!!
