Fashion Statements

February 23, 2015

Political statements on tee shirts are not new. People often take to tees to show their support for various causes. This season, designers are using the runway to get the message across with oversized graphic treatments expressing thier points of view.

It started with Alexander McQueen’s menswear collection, when he showed pinstriped suits and chunky sweaters emblazoned with virtuous words, such as honour, and valour.

Just a few days later, Acne Studios made their statement on long fringed scarves bearing the slogans ” radical feminist” and “gender equality.”

Marc Jacobs continued the trend, featuring the words, “choice” and “solidarity” in his Marc by Marc Jacob women’s collection, shown in New York this week.

This kind of gives a whole new meaning to the term fashion statement, doesn’t it?

Send Up a Flare

October 8, 2014

Step away from those skinnies. There is a new silhouette in town, and it’s very flattering.

The recent runways were rife with 70’s references, and designers were inspired by the era creating homages to haute hippies and establishment types alike.

Flare legged silhouettes popped up across continents, elongating legs in a way those rolled to the ankle skinnies never could.

Derek Lam mixed his sleek khakis with a soft lilac leather jacket:

Paul and Joe cut their flares in a whimsical print for a sharply tailored take on the suit:

Acne made the look edgy, with a dare to bare it all vest over flared pants:

Denim flares were seen outside the show venues at Paris Fashion Week:
