Let’s leave behind for one second the health issue that the human society is facing and let’s cheer up with some fashion inspiration. For this Spring/Summer season 2020 many designers had similar proposals in their fashion shows such as Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Oscar de la Renta, Dior, Fendi, just to mention a few.
Ah, yes, to the days of watching Celebrity Deathmatch, Jackass (and its subsequent offshoots), when listening to Godsmack and Disturbed were cool, then when The Used and MCR saved us, and to the decade that was responsible for spawning the last generation of the now-extinct scene kid. I miss you dearly, for you proved to be the final pillar of hope for mainstream subversion in a world where Miley Cyrus has usurped you.
We’re in the middle of the spring season, and summer is just around the corner. For many of us, with the changing of the seasons comes a desire to renew our makeup, hair, and wardrobe. But with so many trends and new products out there, how does anyone know where to start?
So these are somewhat dark times. Originally, when I saw the 'Unpopular Opinions' contest, I thought I should write something poignant on the nature of humanity ---- something grave yet strangely hopeful. Something that would turn the spirit nobly upwards and cause the reader to reflect, then to smile, fortified by the promise of that which is yet to come. You know, something Aunt Linda would forward you on FaceBook, accompanied by a thoughtful cat gif.
When it comes to the new wave of sneakers—The world of hypebeast is filled with great debates. Hybrid development, known as customs are dealt with a lot of “No’s” and “Don’t’s”. Half of the sneaker world find hybriding Nike with Adidas or any brand as an offense—but yet they wear socks , hats and shoes of different brands unconsciously to the gym. I’ve seen many sneaker heads wearing a Nike shirt with adidas socks or shoes casually or vice versa. Then you have the other half welcoming the new approach hoping the next wave will create a good chaos. I find the sneaker culture in a bit of a never ending twilight zone, specifically with Jordans. The same pair J’s comes out every 4 months with a different color with little-to-no creative adjustment. Opinions fly, fans defend favorites yet there’s an odd double play in wanting what others don’t have and feeling part of the culture of what is known to be part of the wave. I believe mix and matching your favorite sneaker elements creates entirely new silhouettes that people can appreciate from the past of noteworthy releases and bring in forms of it to the modern present with a new twist. Essentially we are doing what the cool kids did in the 80’s but with sneakers. The sneaker-obsessed world scrutinizes new ideas and approaches and is set on believing staying true to one branded look. I believe experimental design and development is the new string of customization that should be considered. People find this gaudy and rather daunting but let’s face it, it brings new creative energy and we are of need of a new Tinker. Remember the days of those kids that wore all black? —and was labeled gothic? Now the cool kids adopted the style and made it there own. It’s the same with sneakers, every sneaker made hasn’t originated solely on its own, there was some form of inspiration or existing design that sneaker designers took from to make it on foot. Why can’t that same approach be taken by the foot be elaborated on the foot? What’s the big f’ing deal?!
I remember de first time in my whole life that I acknowledge the presence of fashion in my life, even though I’ve never worn haute couture clothes or from designers, I used to see it everywhere from the morning show, magazines, books, school and even the mall (obviously).
I was hungry for inspiration on cold winter day. I knew I needed some sort of small project, and I wanted it to involve knitting. The holidays were winding down so it wasn't obvious what to work on next. I had also recently moved, and more than 80% of my belongings were still in storage. The itch to knit was both inconvenient and sensible. I was craving something to soothe the stress of relocation and felt disconnected from my stash.
There is a saying, as long as you think in your mind about a number, whether tens of thousands or tens of millions of dollars, there will be a similar Swiss watch at that price range.
When it comes to ‘style’ we can use this term in many areas like literature, communication, photos, living, and the most common (and related to this noun) fashion. If we go to the grammatical definition of style it’s described as an elegant, fashionable, or luxurious mode of living; Also style it can also be a mode of fashion, as in dress, especially good or approved fashion, also elegance and smartness. So, as a result, style can be linked to anything, we can even find it in nature or anything that surrounds us. But in this article, I’m going to talk to you about the style in fashion (kind of a basic approach to the term) and its evolution through the years, also how fashion style has been embraced by the nowadays generation.
I want to say spring has sprung but, the truth of it is, it’s still in the far off distance. Yes, we may still be scraping ice off our car windshields and wearing jackets over our… jackets, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start daydreaming of lighter colors, layers, and lighter clothing in general. I had the privilege of attending NYFW last fall, where I got a sneak peek of some of the upcoming trends. It’s always so exciting to see what’s going to be the next “new,” particularly when the designers are transitioning from winter and resort lines into spring and summer. I fell in love with a few of the styles, so I wanted to share them, and a few other looks predicted for spring 2020. Here’s a little insight into how to wear these upcoming trends.
