Decorator bandages

To Mr. Brown, 24, who works at Esquire magazine in New York, the
colorful strips are an important accessory, and he’s careful to
coordinate them with his Kris Van Assche sweater or his Balenciaga bag.
He generally wears one on his left hand or arm and balances it out with
two or three on his right leg.

He doesn’t put them on his face because, he said, “I don’t want people thinking, ‘What happened?’ “

Some call it creepy.

“his Kris Van Assche sweater or his Balenciaga bag”……
I work in the media, about 5 blocks from this guy and have no idea what he’s wearing [carrying}
besides it is HOT in the city
Is this really a story or a “fill the feature hole!” sorta thing
weren’t Teenage Ninja Turtle band-aids popular 20 years ago?

I love that he doesn’t want people to wonder what happened to him if he puts them on his face, but slapping them all over his limbs is obviously totally normal and okay.

Modern “beauty spots”. Such things have been out of fashion for a couple of centuries.

If Mr. Brown wants to set a new fashion, I reckon he has called it wrong. It will never take in an economic slowdown. If he is just marking out a personal territory in the “long tail” of modern ways to amend your appearance (like the very boring guy I once met who had an ear pierced for 17 ear-rings; with simgle or chained paper clips in many of them), why not?
