"When I was a little pre-teen, one of life’s rarefied moments was just getting inside of a girl’s bedroom—not to do anything physical in particular, just making it out the family room and up the damn stairs was prize enough. This kind of thing only happened during a secret rendezvous under the cover of night or when a girl’s parents were out of town and she had caught a wild streak. Because getting into a girl’s bedroom was such a rare occurrence, the bedroom of a woman took on a kind of mythical quality in my mind. When I was crushing on a girl, I’d daydream endlessly about what her room would look like. There is still something awe-inspiring to me about femininity expressed in such a personal spaces, where everything is super ornate and vibrantly colored and all the little pieces parts have their own place. Dion Lee’s latest collection looked like something straight out of the walk-in closet in one of the imagined bedrooms of a long-lost boyhood crush of mine. There were soft pinks and creams and bold blues. Everything felt effortlessly flow-y and sexy in a reserved sort of way. Sure I caught a few glimpses of some nice model nips and buttcracks, but it wasn’t a smack-you-in-the-face with sex kind of affair. Instead, it felt elegant and got my imagination running away again, high off the power and mystery of beautiful women and their fancy things."
