Love the Internet & emojis? So do I. I know this aesthetic is a little polarizing, but I really do get a kick out of it. I generally don't like Vaporwave inspired clothing like #7, but I guess this is like Vaporwave seen through a more minimal and mature lens. The Internet is a fundamental component of postmodernism, arguably leading us to where we are now: the unimodern. But that's just theoretical art babble. The point is that the clothes I've picked out here features a lot of Internet graphics like HTML or the iconic www. of a URL. It also takes from pop culture icons like Britney & Bey, as well as things completely banal like that all-over fish print. 

It can definitely seem a bit strange. But even if you hate it, it can at least make you appreciate all the other "prettier" prints you have in your closet!



Have a fresh start to your spring quarter!
