Messages in Fashion

Hey Guys,

Did you get the message?! Why I am saying this because there are many literature and discussions about from where fashion comes. Hypostesis talk about top-bottom and bottom-top influences. For example a top-bottom influence is when big designers (Karl Lagerfeld,…) presents their collections in the catwalks and people in the sector look at them and they try to do something similar.

Today, in this supersaturated world, is very difficult to say from where the influences are coming because there are stimulus everywhere and people take ideas from everything (catwalks, architecture, colours, shapes, movies, music,…) I am observing a clear influence from the social networks and you could see how haute-couture brands also adapt it and it is the presence of messages in t-shirts, coats, and so on. We are living in a society that needs to show how they feeling, where they are, with who,… and most important share it with as much people as they can.

With the social networks people start putting stuff about their daily lives and this arrives to fashion and you can appreciate it in the shops, clothes,… nowadays. It does not escape from the fashion sector and many brands are using it to try to increase sales ┬áhaving the trends in their offer. They are introducing the messages especially in the top parts: t-shirts, shirts/blouses and sweatshirts but also you can see in other garments and places as for example collars, … besides the footwear (keep on eye on it!).

Vivienne Westwood for Opening Ceremony!

Hey Guys,

I hope you are having a great time in spite of the cold weather, actually perfect to show your best jacket or jackets as maybe a nice leather jacket, bomber, fur,…

I am really happy about the new collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Open Ceremony who have designed a 20-piece collection based on the timeless “clothes for heroes” found at her fabled Worlds End Shop in London. I always tell you that you should play and have fun with the clothes and combine them with your imagination and creativity. But also, you should try the clothes from the opposite gender; we are accustomed to know a women looks great in a man’s shirt but why cannot a men look great in a woman’s dress?! I wear so many women clothes and was thinking about the reason and I am happy that Vivienne Westwood is pushing boundaries and experimenting with this capsule and for that she has all my admiration.

In terms of patterns, it is an incredible job as we have difference sizes and bodies; so it is a fenomenal job that the 20-piece fix well to both genders and we have to recognise it and at the same time enjoy the beauty of a good pattern and their shapes; especially with the appearance of the mass market and the loss of the traditional pattern making.

The resulting capsule priced from $95 for a T-shirt to $1,500 bomber jacket and includes reissued garments dating back to the 70’s.
