All things fashion and consumption are about our identity, and how we choose to present ourselves to the world. Shopping for anything is an exercise and meditation, or self examinations and confirmations on what we need, who we are, etc.
Moschino’s Spring 2013 show paraded bad and good girls side by side. Fashion and character fusing to emphasize joyful individuality. Reds, blacks and whites represented intensity, darkness and purity, and their permutations the stereotypes of both good and bad. Being an haute couture show all fabrics were luxe and/or production standards at their highest. Link to Moschino show – http://www.nytimes.com/fashion/runway/moschino/spring-2014-rtw/1
“La classe non e ACQUA” written t-shirt style on a white maillot ended the show, its closest colloquial translation to English would be “Class is not nothing”.
With these thoughts in mind the Dries van Noten show in Paris is GEORGeous . Link. http://www.nytimes.com/fashion/runway/dries-van-noten/spring-2014-rtw/1?...
