Style Actually

Style. We all have it whether we realize it or not. But what exactly is style? How can we define something so simple, yet so complex?

There are many definitions by famous fashion people. Diana Vreeland said that “Style helps you get down the stairs.” Gabrielle Chanel stated that “Chanel is above all a style.” The great beauty Lauren Hutton may have said the most accurate definition for style : “Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. Style is what you choose.”

Burberry Fall Winter 2017

Wait, is this Haute Couture or Ready-To-Wear? I’m confused…

The deconstructive collection had it all, pearls, feathers, nylon, lace, knit, wool, you name it, Burberry had it.

If the brand wanted to tell us they can do arsty, they did.

The show began with a very daring trench coat, succeeded by shirts with Mucnch-like portraits, Basquiat-like faces on sweaters, Elizabethan ruffle collars, metal capelets and statuesque outerwear. The bags were outstanding as ever.

Alexander Wang Fall Winter 2017

With a collection as dark as a moonless night, Alexander showed us again that you can never own too much black. Making it his official color, it’s almost unbelievable how the designer plays with one particular color, season after season.

The party boy of Fashion with this collection tells us that there’s no after party, pants should follow the figure, over-sized jackets are still in and chains make the best bracelets.

The Originals

Back in the days when there were no Instagram, hashtags and followers, the fashion industry was not like it is today. The term “social media” didn’t even existed, unlike today when it’s very important for a model to have 300 000 + followers on various social networks. Models in the 90’s didn’t have to take behind-the-scenes selfies and couldn’t tag the makeup artists and hairdressers. But they were Supermodels, and that was far more important than likes, comments and shares.

Those who seek beauty will find it – Bill Cunningham

Fashion Week. A full month dedicated to clothes. On the runway and on the streets. Fashionistas from all around the world gather at four different cities and show who they are through their clothes. And there are the street style photographers to capture their identity. Whether you wear a Dolce gown, Chanel suit or Balmain dress, it doesn’t matter to them. What matters is how originally you chose your outfit and with how much confidence you wear it.

This subject was on my post-it notes for about a month now, but I have all these exams, and so little time for fashion. Today, the pioneer of street style photography passed away, so I have to pay homage to him and express my gratitude towards the greatest.
