EXPERT OPINION: OUR FASHION MONTH PREDICTIONS
A designer’s job is to present a good collection, but the most iconic creatives go above and beyond their title role to deliver inspiration, surprise, and if we’re lucky some serious shock factor. It’s what keeps the fashion world engaged and fascinated, always looking for opportunities to out-do themselves and make waves that ripple out to create a frenzy. Karl Lagerfeld has taken us from under the sea to blasting off to space, Vetements has collaborated with just about everybody, and we’re all going to be wearing red head-to-toe before we know it. This time of year always gets us excited about what’s coming next and reflecting on our favorite moments past, so we’re sharing a few musings around the office for the Spring/Summer ’18 shows at Fashion Month, kicking off with NYFW next week. Sure, some of them may seem far-fetched, but the greatest part about fashion’s current state is that they just might be crazy enough to come true.
Vetements X ???
“For the past few collections Vetements has made the uncool cool, resurrecting Ed hardy-style designs, Juicy Couture velour track suits and even the humble DHL shirt. I think for this next season they will collaborate with none other than … Walmart! I’m also predicting collections with A/X and Jimmy Choo (which I believe is in a lull at the moment). Overall, I think we’ll see a lot more of the influence of the early aughts on the runway in the best/worst way.”
