Sustainable development is what people nowadays are chattering about. And let’s be practical, we’re talking about the baubles that related to fashion and style and …something in relevance. Yeh, let’s return to muttons, I’m inferring that it’s of vital significance for all of us to possess a few of the garments which cover the key trends of the moment, while having the acumen to look forward.
To be honest, it was all about perceptible affection when I first spotted this color-block plaid blouse by Equipment. Unlike other prosaic ‘Geek Shirts’ which are seen more often than not on the street, there is something unleashing a parade of sophistication that gives edge to the grungy pattern. And when it comes to color-block, especially with my favorite daffodil yellow, the enticement of it is seemingly too intumescent to get over. Either with plaid pants of similar pattern or plain ones would perfectly work well. And why not kick off a brand new day with this killer? Just casually grab my cropped leather jacket, and that’s it!
I have to admit that a man in leopard prints is easily judged as a sissy something. And it gets even worse when that claimed-sissy guy is dressed in a leopard from the womenswear section. On the contrary, with this leopard sweatshirt by 3.1 Phillip Lim, however, it seems like the steering wheel on his style would do a 180 to drop him off on the corner of mad and chic. Stitching with a contrasting denim sleeves in mottled grey at which contain zipper details, this ‘Wild Lim’ obtains a scent of hermaphroditism that contributes to something masculine. For the styling, I’d simply get myself lightly accessorized on the wrists while unzip the zippers to make them unveiled.
And for this ‘Work Bitch’ sweatshirt, which is printed by myself, you might be either precisely enthralled in it or showing your innate distaste of it. But since it’s a real eye-catcher on the street, just forget about it and do as it says.
Simon Gao‘s show is seemingly an interactive dialogue between masculine and feminine. Mannish or womanly, the collection precisely gives off a fair bit of modern edge from which we can fetch the innovative and refreshing ideas. Plus, in the light of what they call, the lingua franca in fashion, Gao conceives a message of his own interpretation of elaboration, creativity, and somewhat a sort of quirky luxe. There must be something related to multiculturalism throughout the collection, for as far as I acknowledge, the keen insight of Eastern philosophy, along with western tailoring, has far more transcended its stereotype. What’s more, the combo of modern art and futurism just adds another edge to the whole collection.
Besides the innovation of fabrics, we’re thrilled to spot the new, or somewhat quirky ideas of styling. From a ground-length pleated sheer skirt to the structured maxi dress which contains a cut-out detail on the back, or just take a look at that minimal waistcoat and the satin-alike bomber jacket. Yeh, and don’t ever dismiss those chunky clunky Buddhism-inspired shoes! These are the killer pieces we’d love to go for in the next season. It might sound weird to match all of these pieces together. Still, from a wearing point of view, however, with the flexible change of proportion, it shows otherwise. The ovations are constantly high for this collection, and frankly speaking, we are curious to discover what Simon’s next move will do to his design.
With thousands of fashion enthusiasts gathering around at Tin 79, Beijing, the notable Chinese designer JiWenbo, who has just made a comeback from Milan Menswear Fashion Week, throws out his latest spring/summer 2014 collection with his stroke of talent. Minimalism, with regards to the philosophy of ‘the hands that gives gathers’, is my ultimate impression on Jiwenbo Spring/Summer 2014 collection.There is an immaculate quality to the cutting and tailoring that dominated the first half of the show, while a second segment eases up to lightweight printed silks and structured evening wear that oozes .Unlike the conventional form of traditional Chinese costumes, JiWenbo eliminates elements like glare colors, stiff silhouettes, and heavy embroideries. Still, in the light of the philosophy of eliminating and gathering, Ji’s minimalism spirit has nothing to do with a lack of detail. A variety of discernible origami folds, vibrant prints, rich textured fabrics, as well as those signature Chinese ink painting patterns flowing on the garments, are distinctively seen throughout the collection
Alas, a make-over grunge style, especially with plaid patterns (as i’ve mentioned before), resurfaced in spectacular fashion. Not in the conventional sense, however, cheapness and ardent rage are not the main topic we’d like to talk about. And this look worn by Sophie Warburton is an iconic example. None of the elements like leather, plaid, or ducky shades are missing, yet sophistication and elaboration are the spotlight of the whole ensemble. Reworked plaid trousers are in forms of neat and pleasing simplicity, while that pair of booty heels, which is inspired by the silhouette of boots, seems more softening and executed. Lightly-accessorizing is strongly recommended, but just keep it simple and in-order.
Thus, we’ve picked out two purchase lists in the light of Sophie’s urban grungeensemble. One in a more elaborate and high-end way, while another offers you a more affordable choice. You may go for either or come to compromise according to your preference.
