Something strange happened to the world in the early 2000’s, maybe it was the economy, the rise of the almighty Internet, or the turn of the century, but people started to lose their sense of style and taste. I was very young at that time, but I remember older girls from my town wearing crop tops and jeans so low cut, that you could actually see the wearer’s natural hair color. Not a pleasant memory, don’t you think so?
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.”
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 San Francisco born hip hop boy, one of my personal favorite designers showed us once again, that he is making the coolest clothes right now. Everybody wants to be #WANGSQUAD.
His show was held on 10th September in New York, was mixture of his old and new collection. While the guests were all wearing clothes from his Fall Winter 2016, the models walked the runway in next year’s biggest trends.
Although summer is slowly coming to its end, Alexander makes us to pack our bags and go live somewhere tropical. Somewhere you can wear his very cool surfer shorts and rock those beachy waves.
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.
