Status Anxiety – do you have it?
In 2004 a fellow named Will took to his hometown Sydney on foot, hitting up local fashion boutiques to pick up a few wallets he had made for their stores.
The first question people want to know is “what is status Anxiety”?
Put simply it is the condition caused by comparing one’s self with those around them by measuring our jobs, our appearance and our possessions. Status Anxiety do not make light of anxiety but instead draw attention to the potential effects of the condition.
Status Anxiety focus on and produce high quality minimalistic goods that last and are timeless. Leather goods that reflect the ethos of simplicity and value rather than poor quality, throw away items that focus around fast fashion fads.
Their minimalistic goods are all still designed in Sydney with an emphasis on quality not quantity and although the goods have a broad appeal they are definitely not produced for the masses.
