So I took these photos of two young fashionable men.
The first had a very cool “Death” cap on.
And the second had the reddest pair of sneakers, I’ve ever seen.
Both were stylish standouts!
To me, the hat confronted the scariness of death head-on (excuse the pun) or that the person is themselves, in a sense, death to anyone that starts with them or gets in their way–it is not only bold in terms of the big white letters, but in terms of the courage to face the harshest of all our realities.
Then to the shoes, going red and untied, spoke to me in terms of looseness, comfort, and ease with yourself–you are who you are and the world be darned!
Both the cap and the shoes are in your face and make a statement of cool nonchalance and the daringness to confront “whatever.” 😉
