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
