I'm going to propose something that may defy the laws of gravity (or woteva it might sound a little blazzay) ... well maybe not to the fashionistas out there. What do we think about 60's High school vs 80's Reebok retro.
During my bi annual read of WAD magazine, I stumbled upon a rivival (i'm praying that the next Air Jordan is reading this) because my thinking is that were defiantely due a pop culture trend that matches the days of Andy Warhol and The Runaways! Im thinking that shoes are the way to go, who remembers the eighties fall of the fittest 'Nike Vs Rebok' showdown? When fashion was all about the highest of the high tops and more colours in laces than Vivenne Westwood has seen in her hair lifetime! Were talking multi dimentional, space invader, ranibow/skittle/ M&M colour conversions and moreso they had to be Rebok!
Recent runways have seen what?? Pixelated prints/graffiti modernist from the likes of Alexander McQueen, oooo what about Gareth Pugh and his modish approach to punk? From season to season the pallettes are integuing similar to the repertoir of the last- all we get now is silouettes/style. Of course this makes fashion yes, but what ever happened to the days of colour clash madness, Sonkia Rykeil and Mr Marc J. see to have the same concensus as I!
Any one noticed the D&G high tops, all plain white going for the high school feel?? When did fashion get boring, theres a totally massive difference between classical and just plain well................ plain. Running the risk of sounding like a naive clueless writer, fashion seems to have lost its ability to be fashionable, as a trainee buyer myself, all were forced down is numbers this, negotiate this, better margins for that and as a business yeah, why not trends + consumer demand x margin = 16 holidays a year plus a nice Merc/ or if your me an Aston.
Reflecting back in the times of the high top when kids didnt have ipods/mobiles that didnt reflect bricks, fashion was at its peak. The only way to be truely original was to have brighter tongues, paint by numbers trainers, 16 different pairs of laces in one shoe!! And you know what all recession proof!
WAD magazine 'j'adore' French produced with its English language side kick, is the most unique mag ive laid my pretty little hands on since Purple Mag joined the ranks of Fashion bibles everywhere! Have to say the 10/10 issue really old school, packed full of fashion forward ideas, CSM students- Monik is going to be massive with his futuristic take on drama dress! Look out for that one!
