Meghan Collison by Mason Poole for JALOUSE, 2011
After going through some quite intersting shows of NYFW, LFW and PFW (so far), it
was too obvious - A/W 15 Smells like Teen Spirit somehow! And I can't be happier
about this (return) résumé if you ask me!
After the strong influence of Fifty Shades of Grey we're all lusting to show up our
darker side this fall! I've always been an admirer of punk elements and
"I don't care" - subcultures, the Kurt Cubain-esque plaid, oversizing, worn off and
ripped gear! And let's be honest at that point - all of you have at least one piece in
your closet which might satisfy these criteria.
But before your run to occupy your wardrobe - watch out! This trend gonna be
different this season: It's Wang, Lim and Tisci who surprised us with a mix of goth
and grunge by using opulently textured fabrics like velvet, mesh, tweed, silk and
mohair. Which color(s) is out of the question of course!
"I wanted to challenge the authority of the system of pretty,"
says Lim. Some might say it's a rebellion, others it's a reaction of the missing
commecial sucess. But one thing is certain:
It's better to burn out than to fade away!!!"
