It’s one thing to singlehandedly convince the internet masses that we need to add pom pom shoes, a feather vest, and a flamingo named Pete to our lives immediately (no small feat!). Then again, it’s another thing entirely to DESIGN these man repelling pieces yourself. But if anyone can do it, it’s Leandra Medine, aka the New York blogger Man Repeller who’s gaining as much notoriety for her daring mishmashed street style as she is for her sharply-penned website. The 23-year-old has already dipped her hands into various aspects of the fashion industry outside of blogging, such as modeling for Uniqlo, curating collections for ASOS, and scheming collabs with Dannijo. Now fresh from New York Fashion Week Leandra has just announced a new clothing line (!!). She’s teamed up with PJK on dresses, skirts, tops, and knits in cotton and silk. The collection is called “MR x PJK….Just Sayin'” and we hear it’ll be “wearable insanity — in the coolest sense of the word.” OK, who’s excited?!
The MR x PJK line will range from $198-$398 and will make its debut at the Coterie trade show before hitting select retailers in the spring. No word yet on where you can score the clothes yourselves, but DO know that the launches will be accompanied by events hosted by Leandra herself. Oh, and get this- each piece will have a special tag with a “Repel-ometer” to say just HOW repelling it is (um, genius). So whether it’s tomboy army vests, graphic tees, and loose minidresses, dudes of the world, you’ve been warned.
