Who Can You Trust?
Because much of our daily interactions occur virtually, we connect to and identify with people and material goods differently than their physical compatriots. While our pants don’t have Facebook profiles, bestowing certain garments with a proper name suggests that pursuing a relationship with trousers might not be completely bonkers. In personifying the inanimate through unique monikers, brands such as J.Crew and Warby Parker are capitalizing on our search for authentic relationships with the Named garment. Buying into Named garments like Minnie reflects a vulnerability perpetuated by lives spent in the virtual world. As we abbreviate our selves down to scheduled tweets of 140 characters, we long for something that feels just real enough. And what is more quintessentially human than a proper name?
love this skirt soooooo much.
Today only, Fringe t-shirt. I'm broke but I thought you might get a kick out of it.
