The long awaited second instalment from Melbourne's "The Youth Revolt" is finally here! Their "Workwear collection" is inspired by getting outside and reconnecting with yourself / friends / family.
"Finding the time to do something" - Do something meaningful and powerful for yourself, Go harder than you did last year and find a way to enjoy it. We only have one lifetime and it can be taken away from us at any moment. So live like that, live like you could die tomorrow. Focus on what you want. Take some time to recalibrate and get back to your truth. Set ambitious goals and go after them. This is your life.
The collection draws inspiration from the late & great Virgil Abloh.
The way he shaped the culture through design, collaboration and challenging the norm is inspirational. His legacy will live on through the millions of people he touched.
If there is 1 thing we've learnt from Virgil, it is how to look at a situation and turn it into a positive and learn from it. He showed fearlessness. Not listening to friends or naysayers that said he couldn’t do it. Not listening to the conventional “Norm” about how things “should” be, but creating what was in his mind and giving it to the youth.
“You can do it too” was the caption of Virgil's IG post when he did his first LV runway show in Paris. Even at the height of his career, he was always thinking how to inspire others. the mentality of if I can do it, you can do it too. May we carry this message on and pass it down through generations. RIP King.
