Outfit of the Week: Quiet Riot Grrrl


A pocketknife inscribed with the word COURAGE does her dirty work for her — the better to keep her violet manicure intact as she pounds the pavement in her loosely laced combat boots, blasting Bikini Kill in her headphones. She wears Proenza Schouler's no-frills luxury shearling coat day in, day out, to complete her otherwise offbeat, skin-to-teeth look.
