Sneak Peak: The September "New York" issue of V Magazine features the supermodel looking very downtown
I’m a downtown girl through and through…
Self-expression rather than cloned perfection is more my thing. That’s what I love most about living in New York’s East Village.
The neighborhood maintains its sense of edgy self-made style and uniqueness. Sure, punk stores on Saint Mark’s Place have been replaced by yogurt shops and dissident rockers gave way to hip Japanese and NYU students, but there’s no doubt that there will be something interesting, insane, or inspiring once you set foot onto the street.
There remains a certain grit and vibe left over from the neighborhood’s hardcore rock days of yore. The super-cool John Varvatos store has replaced the legendary punk rock club CBGB‘s yet it still honors its music heritage and marries it to modern fashion.
And that edgy mix is exactly what this fashion spread is about.
The promo for V Magazine’s "Saint Marks Place" spread featuring modern supermodel Agyness Deyn comes with the tag line,"The Secret of Downtown Style? Anything Goes When the Attitude is Right. If these East Village Denizens Look Right At Home In Their Magpie Mix of Knits, Mesh, Denim, and Velvet. It’s Because They Are."
Well, yes sort of, but frankly, the Cheetos and acid washed jeans look more like "middle of no where trailer" to me but then again that is the East Village vibe– take anything and make it look cool!
