Another outfit from Marlon Rivera's aw 2011 collection. I was eyeing on wearing this for a long time now since its runway debut back in May.
for fashion week, I wanted to incorporate color to the look because the silhouette is almost floor length and its black, so it might overpower my not so tall height and built. To create proportioned upper half and lower half visually, I chose a bright blue color as a shirt. For the pants, I wore super low leathery trousers, skipping my daily skinny jeans uniform in favor for a more directional carrot fit trousers with folded hem. Since I wanted to wear these rocking pointed ankle booties gifted by my sister from her recent Japan vacation I decided to pair it with a bright purple sock.

The jewelry was as dramatic as the cape and the hair...oh i just love. A swirling massive curl of hair resting in the middle. I felt like a caramel swirl on a cone. theres something delectable and fascinating about its shape.

The overall look of the stylized hair, the dark dramatic cape and pointed shoes were somewhat reminiscent of quirky characters from Harry Potter. Like I was somehow part of another house in Hogwart's. It felt otherworldy , almost academic too in the toga type of fuzzy wooly cape. But I massively love my look. Its comfortable, dark, moody, yet quirky, fun at the same time. Im always a sucker for dualities in dressing.

And of course the title. One of many spells in Hogwart's that i cherish. For a few members who read my previous posts, Im a sucker for the idea of flight e.g. flying things whether imaginary or real flying objects. So the cape wasn't spared from the flying tossing trick and I love how the fabric unudlates when it floats in the air:) Maybe Ill try flying on my own next time?:) What say you?

Andre, there aren't enough men's capes being worn these days. Your look without the cape would be fantastic enough, but it's the cape that brings it all together. It's like the period at the end of a sentence. Except in this case, it's more like an exclamation mark! :-)

I always enjoy browsing through your looks, though.
Andre Judd
