The realisation that you don’t need to be skinny nor young to be perfectly beautiful. For years now, yeah well really ever since Twiggy came and replaced the more curvy models, the fashion industry have been all about being the tallest, the youngest and the skinniest. But now it seems that the industry have had some kind of epiphany, and the rules have definitely been changed. Resulting in some really great fashion moments, such as when Vogue did a sexy (maybe even borderline vulgar) photo shoot with only plus size models. Of course it is not just the skinny gene the fashion industry have started to go away from. The industry that have up into now been a very youth obsessed place, have now also made room for natural ageing. Which could for sure be seen when Celine in January came out with a campaign staring Joan Didion, not only one of the coolest and most fashionable woman in the world, but also a woman who can proudly say that she is no less than 80 years old.
Alessandro Michele. If we go back to this around time last year close yo nobody knew who he was, but after coming out with probably the greatest collection Gucci have ever shown, he have definitely put his own name on the fashion agenda, and I can only hope to see so much more of him. I don’t even want to say anything else, since the video up there ^^ will say more than I could write with a thousand words.
When the airport and the red carpet both where brought to the runway. Every time a new season roles around, the clothing must be shown, and the catwalk must be walked. Of course it must be so extremely difficult for the many brands and designers to keep up with each other cause it is no secret that if you want your clothes to make an impression, a normal catwalk is simply not enough. This resulted in Marc Jacobs presenting his cloths on no less than a red carpet, and Karl Lagerfeld having his Chanel cloths put on models walking around in his all own Chanel airport. These two shows were whit out doubt the most show stopping (haha – saw what I jut did there) show of this year.
Balmain in collaboration with H&M. Not only was it pretty much the only thing the entire world of fashion could talk about weeks before, but it was also an amazing way to give the brand, that into now have had a more excluded and small audience, a whole new group of “fans” if I may call it that. At the same time Oliver Rousting got himself lanced to be the next big designer of the 21st century. That, and then he really also proved himself Kendall/Kylie Jenner happy, posting close to nothing but pictures of himself in their company on Instagram.
