In the contemporary world, trends born and die quicker than a mayfly which, has a general lifespan of a only 24 hours. But no matter how fickle the lifespan of these emerging fashion trends may be, if you are a fashion enthusiast, they are still simply worth noting, experimenting with, and trying.
Trends are arguably the trend these days. But even within fashion trends, there are classifications. There are trends that will not last for more than a week, trends that will take the market by a storm, and trends that are making a comeback, a blast from the past. But if there is one trend this year that has proved to be a dominating force on runways across the globe as an overarching theme for many lines, look no further than streetwear.
THE COLLISION OF STREETWEAR AND HIGH FASHION
Gone are the days when streetwear and high fashion were considered opposites that would never meet - this combination has shown that it may just be the trendiest collision in the fashion industry to date. We are halfway through the year and the love for street luxe only seem to be growing, especially due to the fact that it is extremely accessible for anyone. It has opened up a brand new world of experimentation and contrast in which anyone and everyone can participate.
The streets on fashion weeks are truly an insight to see where the marriage of streetwear and high fashion has come about. It is a fun and exciting trend because it is something that every teenager and young adult can relate to and also something that we greatly draw inspiration from here at Paris Club.
STREETWEAR: RULING THE RUNWAY
Streetwear has undoubtedly become the theme of 2017 as many high end fashion designers and brands are realizing the potential behind the amalgamation of haute couture and street style and using it to propel themselves further in the minds and tastes of the young audience.
Tokyo’s fashion week for the Fall 2017 was a proper homage to the heavenly combination of high end fashion and streetwear as the runway zealed with oversized jackets and exquisitely deconstructed street style on swaggy, slender frames.
The street fever has not only affected Tokyo, but has taken over a number of designers as model after model walked out wearing grunge hoodies akin to our Foret Rose Forest Hood and the minimalistic yet street trendy Broken Heart Cap. From Vetements to Louis Vuitton, all have been quick to jump on this bandwagon and ride this fresh wave of the fashion world.
What do you think about this explosive collision? Has it inspired you or do you think it will fizzle out sooner than later?
