Shameless Self-Promoter

New Zealand fashion journalist Isaac Hindin-Miller is currently blogging for The New York Times. Hindin-Miller says trends move much faster in New York than New Zealand. “Fashion stores will bring jumpsuits out for two weeks, and then they will be the big new-thing. But then miniskirts will be in right after that. In New Zealand things don’t move as quickly,” he says. In a recent blog for the Times, he discusses Swedish design collective and fashion line Acne. “Although Acne might be best known for its jeans, it was two non-denim pieces that spurred my love for the brand. The formula is basic: Take a couple of classic garments, throw in something that pops, and you’re ready to walk out the door.” Hindin-Miller declares himself a “shameless self-promoter and stone cold East Coast thug.”
