Things on Strings

Things on Strings –Fasionrat
A lot of the time we think fashion is only what goes on in shops. However, a great deal of what ends up as cool really starts with a handful of random tripperkids discovering something fun.
Fashion rarely begins in a marketing meeting. Fashion just happens. It’s fun. It’s silly. And that spirit of irreverence and experimentation (as opposed to the simple excess of the great marketing machine) is what makes Things on Strings so appealing. IT is as it sounds; Take a thing, add string; wear. Done!
1: Lego. Some dude I know connected one BIG piece of lego to a string, so that then he could just add and subtract to it at his leisure. This girl used a lego octopus, which is equally cool.
Really Long Link
2: Lollies (strictly speaking, ‘candy’). Those mad lolly necklaces that you get for about a buck in a 7-11. We know that you’re not really meant to wear then unless you’re aged under twelve, but they’re really cool. So to hell with you, spoilsports.
3. Key chains. So yes they’re made for keys. But by now I’m sure you’ve worked out it’s all about re-contextualisation. How would it look around your neck? Try it. Really Long Link keychain.
4. CDs. Yes, they are meant to be listened too. But CDs get scratched, broken, drawn on etc. When this happens, don’t ditch it! Chuck it on a string, and there you go!
5. Rings. Again, not meant for your neck, but hopefully by now you’ve worked out that if it was MEANT to go around your neck, you really shouldn’t bother. A ring around the neck it a pleasant thing, especially where it shares a meaning with a special someone.
6. Basically anything that has a hole in it can have a string through it; so why wait? Get stringy!
7. 7. draw it. Really Long Link
8. Stuff. Toys. Really Long Link
9. felt Really Long Link
