All I do is Lin.


Those of you who are in the USA, I'm sure you've heard of the sensation that is Jeremy Lin. My knowledge of the guy started out as a bunch of status updates on Facebook from fellow Asians (apparently they make up 90% of my college friends) writing about some dude named Jeremy Lin. I thought to myself, "Who the hell is this Jeremy Lin guy and why is everyone writing about him???" As the week went on, I gathered more information via status updates that he played basketball. More time went on, more status updates, and I figure out he plays for the Knicks (at this point I'm just being stubborn and don't want to Google him). Then Friday comes and my friend Nikki educates me that the guy plays on the Knicks and they have won a couple of games in a row when he started playing. She provides me with a link of clips of Jeremy Lin playing and then suddenly I have all sorts of Asian Pride and jump on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon. Luckily for me, that night the Knicks played the Lakers and Jeremy Lin played well so I was allowed to jump on the bandwagon. What this story has to do with fashion you ask, it really has nothing to do with fashion.. but, I happened to see these Jeffery Campbell's on Ssense.com which made me think of the Knicks (their colors are orange and blue) - all around the same time I've jumped on this bandwagon and I thought, what are the chances.
