Recently my family paid me the honour of visiting my relatively new flat. After showing them round and receiving the obligatory nods of approval, my sister suddenly, and loudly, gasped. “You STILL have this thing?!” She was pointing to a navy shawl collar cardigan draped over a chaise longue (you read that right) that I’ve had since my first year of University.
Like many others who were (or still are in some cases) stuck inside during this strange summer, I have immersed myself back into the world of cinema. Personally I’ve been enjoying working my way through Spike Lee’s early “joints” (I lost patience after Chi-Raq whilst Da 5 Bloods only just managed to hook me in). As I rewatched a few favorites and ticked others off the list, I suddenly realized something; the sense of style in these films is actually on point. From Mookie’s Dodgers jersey in Do The Right Thing to Delroy Lindo’s shirts in Crooklyn, his characters have got a natural sense of game that just blends into the overall experience.
