the anti muse; colonel sanders


i'm a bit of a one for championing an anti-fashion hero.
it's why often I'll find myself drawn to characters in films, or odd characters from books and cartoons.
for the past couple of months ago, my latest anti muse has been colonel sanders.

the stringey chicken buckets and meat stench I can do without, thanks, but take a closer look and you're left with a very ashley olsen-esque white blazer, clear clubmaster glasses and the coolest little cravat, which is rather western chic.

similar accessories have popped up on the catwalk at rag and bone and luella over the past couple of seasons, and they're the perfect accompaniment to a little androynous finery, just how colonel sanders likes it.
