you're wearing a building? no, hot tea. oh. wait. what?

The shape and form of a piece of clothing can be different for every wearer, and it often reveals the time the article of clothing was made--dropped waists, shoulder pads, manly silhouettes all shriek that lovely period of time we know as the 80's. What type of clothing screams the 00's? Or whatever this decade is called...... it doesn't even have a nickname yet does it? The new millenium?

Anyway. Looking through gallery upon gallery, I'm noticing that despite the street style depicting decades past, it's always a more exaggerated version that that of the actual decade. Bigger bows, dramatic lines, that kind of thing.

On the runway this isn't as common for the most recent collections. Of course, it's still there--fashion is a cycle, after all--but now I'm seeing designers concentrate more on the structure of the clothes than on decades to pay homage to. Now, I love theatrical outfits (come on, I dress ''like a gay actor'' half the time, I think it's kind of a given that dramatic outfits = my love). But the change of focus is a welcome change every once in awhile.


ARCHITECTURAL CLOTHES Mechanical Connection Vol. II S/S '08

I love this collection. At first glance, I thought it was bland...nothing screamed out, caught my eye--it was just too simple. And then, you look deeper. The material. The way it moves with your body. The....gimmick, I guess would be a good word to describe it. It's not so much clothing as art, and subtle art at that. It's.....architecture, and that's exactly what the designer wanted. The designer is not so much someone who makes clothes, but clothes that remind you of architecture. And I love it. Going through the line piece by piece, you can see a story. I think it'd look great in a magazine spread and quite frankly, on my best friends.

Ooooooohhhh, I feel so good right now. So satisfied! I just found these amazing, fantastical sketches.... designer or wannabe? Leave your guesses in the comments. :)

I think right now style is so much about past styles and so many quick trends that there isn't one signature look. I like it that way.

I do often wonder what this decade would be classified as once we're old and our children start becoming the fashionistas. :P

Belle said...

glad to know i'm not the only one! yeah... i think we incorporate decades past and make it tighter to the body, but it's different for every one. :)

jessa said...

those shirts are interestsing, the bandage thing looks kind of hospital-chic though.

Wendy said...

The illustrations are awesome!

Amelia said...

I'm really excitited to see what the 00's will be known for in 50 years. It's just too hard to look at fashion objectively while your living it...ok, that's a weird way to put it, but you know what I mean. I love the sketches, too.

Belle said...

I know exactly what you mean; sometimes I can't wait to grow old so I can see how fashion has evolved.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Kira Fashion said...

a kiss and a hug,
