Blame is Game.

Master Blame.

Judy Blame is a stylist/designer/fashion legend worthy of some space in your brain. I hate to make an ass out of you and me and assume that you don't know Mr. Blame, but he's more of the behind the seams type here in the states than he ought to be. His career was born in the '80s in London. Working with a group of like-minded rabble rousers who went by the name of Buffalo Boys, Blame helped pioneer a look that encompassed hard, soft, masculine, and feminine (think combat boots and lace on boy toy-era beefcakes). The look leaked to pop culture and made a pro-stylist of Blame.

He's worked with musicians like Neneh Cherry, Bjork, and Boy George, contributed to ID and added his accessory design skills to haute houses like Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, and, most recently, Comme des Garcons. I appreciate his pile-it-on aesthetic and love his repurposed materials (toy soldiers? Yes, please.) You want some of the Blame too? His current work can be found in CdG boutiques and online via dobedo.

Yummy/crazy/colorful. Like a bag of Halloween candy for your wardrobe.
