Anywhat, the inspiration for this post was their latest issue – the Word Issue – which features models in smart and serious wear as Fashion156 address the geek-chic aesthetic. I must admit I find the labelling of a particular style as ‘geeky’, ‘nerdy’ ‘swot-esque’ or any other adjective pertaining to smarts, as just that bit lazy and I vow to avoid doing so at all costs. Don’t you feel it’s somewhat stereotypical or simplistic, to write off all cardigans and thick-rimmed glasses as ‘geeky’?
However, I do appreciate that one has to effectively and efficiently describe the theme and the content within so perhaps they couldn’t help themselves. Now, forget I said anything and feast your eyes on these which more than redeem any generalisation committed.
Also, be sure to check out their competition which could fetch you some fantastic fashion reading material. See here for more details.
