Junkie Fashion

Tags

, , ,


I havn’t been on the THE SARTORIALIST blog for a while and was really looking forward to new inspirations as the new season just started and all fashions weeks just ended…

So it’s a dress up time!

But well, looking through his last 6 pages of posting I have realized that I am starving for fashion, as I have not seen one inspirational outfit but I am sick of… Junkies… 60 per cent of the pictures posted were just junkies .. People with messy untidy hair, chaotic und ugly outfits.. Outfits which look like they have been worn by another 10 junkies before this one was captured by the camera…

And I mean, junkies have always been there, let them be.. But I have never seen such a strong promotion of their image. I have even gone to the THE SARTORIALIST archive, to October 2008 to see the difference. And you know what? There is a major difference, only one junkie there.  October 2013 is just a bunch of people who look either very normal-boring, or like they have been travelling in the same outfit for 4 days without a possibility for some fresh up. October 2008 is still a source for new ideas, here is my favorite (on the junkie background)..

It is a very smart commercial project within the fashion apparel world, based on getting maximum profit. Of course a creation of the junkie look requires less quality, it should look just shabby. This “shabby chic” bullshit.. It is easy to be and to follow. You can just wear some unmatching , dirty or old set of canvas, cannot even call it clothes, and the junkie image is complete.  It is also important to have a messy hair, insane tattoos. Sure it is naturally easier to have untidy hair, so following has never been easier.

The quality of the apparel goes down, no one is striving for some esthetic look, clean and elegant appearance.. This is also promoted by the advertisement and even high fashion.

These two look very fashionable, don’t they..?

The best high fashion end junkie promoter is Vivienne Westwood. Her SP14 show is the best example. Models with the dirt all over their bodies and even in the face…Image

This last lady in a crazy maxi skirt print reminds me of a homeless woman, who lives on the rubbish pile, 2 blocks away from my grandma’s house. I swear, her cluttered hair, skirt and an oversized blazer look just like this model.

But London is known for a junkie look. No, not because it is a fashion capital. Because life there is very tuff and expensive, and people travel in a dirty tube for hours daily. After couple years of such live, they just done care what they look like and some confused think they are fashion…

 

People, clean up your looks, stop abusing my esthetical world perception!

 

 

 

 

MiucciaPrada got kidnaped by aliens..

Well, it is the only explanation I personally find to her latest Prada shoe wear collection, Spring Summer 2013.

Following this logic I recon, Celine designer Phoebe Philo met a Yeti, which is also very clear from what see suggested as a Spring Summer13 shoewear.

If this is a shoewear of a future, then I am selling my Loubouton’s stocks asap, as he will be going down..

BOTTEGA VENETA rocks Milan Fashion Week SS13

I never write and comment on the next season fashion shows, till the season actually comes. But there is always an exception to a rule, which means there is always one post from the fashion week, with a show I absolutely love. This time I really had to choose between  Bottega Veneta and Oscar De La Renta, well I chose Bottega. There is still a Paris fashion week to come, but I am very very excited about colors, textures, forms, prints and looks. See yourself..

P.S. New trend to follow.. A beautiful tone matched bra under a see through top, feminine and elegant instead of vulgar.

Are you down to earth? Yes, I wear flats..

According to the prognoses from the Spring Summer’13 on, ballerinas are no longer number one loved and demanded flats. They have been successfully and now officially replaced by loafers. It is a milestone in a fashion history. Ballerinas have been there for us for long past  ten years, beloved and often No.1 footwear for girls, teens, women and grannies. Now, it is time to change the shoes, to move on further and open a new page with Loafers. 

Loafers have hit the fashion market already couple years ago. A year ago at least, they have been wore by a wide variety of fashionistas in all sorts of combinations. Now they are said to be a must have and a choice prior to land on your shoe shelf. 

This statement has been strongly promoted by Tod’s, which now can truly enjoy the taste of growing profit. Spotting the tendency Manolo Blahnik even went down to earth and introduced his first flat line of loafers. 

Are you loafering hard? What have you done to your ballies?

No fashion beyond THE LINE, how Fall Winter’12 Season killed fashion

Tags

There is a thing LINE between fashionable and ridiculous, stylish and tasteless.. Every day we meet people who have crossed this LINE. My friend calls it ‘eyes cancer’. Well, I do believe that if you look at the tasteless people long and often enough, the diseases might actually get you. Fortunately, it is easy enough to avoid those pictures.

What I find truly unbearable is when the high fashion designers cross that LINE. As firstly, ridiculous and tasteless clothes hurts yours eyes and feelings anyway, whether it is on the street or on the runway. But I find it is even worth, because a bag design brought once on the stage, will follow you everywhere for at least several month, before the season ends. And secondly, it ruins my visual perfect  imaginary vogue world.  I open my Vogue and bAAMM, horror everywhere. Instead of liking and desiring those pieces I flip through pages in a hope to find something pleasing for the eyes….. and nothing comes, only design failures… ahhhh 

So, where is this LINE, and is there any LINE at all? Till what extent are designers allowed to make fools of us? Fashion makes a bit of a fool of you anyway, as when you follow it, you become a victim of someone’s funny fantasies and sometimes even a  lack of knowledge and a sense of beauty. People find a word ‘fool’ too harsh and often prefer to use a ‘clown’ words instead, but is it so much better? The most famous fashion lover ever, Anna Dello Russo admits herself, that she does have a role of a clown, as you have to wear whatever comes up and just hope for the best.

Most of the time, those dressings look at least pretty, at least they match to the Vogue and live in a harmony within photo shoots. You would wand those clothes, but of course you don’t have as it is too expensive, too pretty, a bit unpractical and way too fancy. Unfortunately, this season high end luxury fashion has crossed the LINE. Now, those pictures look just as ridiculous in Vogue as they do in live. Look at the last German Vogue shoot. There is only one positive thing about it. It proves, that I spotted all main Fall Winter’12 Trends right.  Here you can find Babushka, and Overly Oversized.. additionally comes Harry Porter and couple more creepy figures, who look like druggies, but where is fashion? It is a famine of beauty. And it has only been 1 month only since a new fashion season started. I am desperate. Never I felt so unmotivated to unpack a new Vogue, to flip through runway shoots, to check those ‘favorite looks to copy’ again. 

What I find even worse, is that designers feel comfortable enough to do that. Not only they make a world of fashion unattractive activity for amateurs, they seriously shake a passion for fashion of the faithful ones.

There is however still a plus side. There are still couple pretty collections in this immersive failure amount, which is easier to concentrate on and get a spotless look. I also am very excited to see which of this trends are going to be picked up and promoted by the mass suppliers like H&M, Zara or Mango. Those eventually define which trends are wearable and beloved, and which will never take a place in our wardrobes, not to mention our hearts. 

To be fair, this is what homeless people look like in the Ukraine..They also have their stuff in those plastic squared bags.. :S

Have you heard of Dereon? No?Then you havn’t heard of Beyonce…

Deréon is a fashion line from Beyoncé Knowles.. Yes, she has her own fashion line.. Yeah, I also did not know that.. Somehow I missed it.. Nowadays every second public person does something with fashion, wether they have an idea or not..

Well, I gotta say there are couple good fashionable wearable pieces I would wear.. Actually all pieces are absolutely wearable and fashionable enough.. The current collection includes quite a bit of leather and leather patches, leopard print, ethno colors and prints, feminine dresses..

Now Dereon comes to Germany, or better to say, the shoes from Dereon come to Germany. JustFab.de has an exclusive right to sell them now. The sire itself has a very attractive offers and couple pretty styles. Flats and wedges from Beyonce can be bought at a price of 59euro, which I think is very reasonable. So now check two things out> Beyonce’s collection and JustFab.com (you can also find from Avril Lavigne).
