Trend-spotting F / W 13.14 ; Type and Rebellion

Uncategorized

The influence of Punk has been found in all areas of fashion, majorly due to the fact that the Metropolitan Museum of Art has chosen it as the theme for the yearly costume institute. There were a mix of different interpretations on the Fall runways — one being graphic / punk-esque slogan t-shirts. Whether with abstract letters spelling out in-your-face text – as Jeremy Scott’s ‘Rescue Me’ jumper — or a design that’s more subversive and sequined — Ashish presented a top reading ‘i’m having a shit day thanks’ — typed out tops are sure to be a major trend for the coming fall. It’s a great way to channel that punk attitude without feeling like you are donning a fancy dress costume, and these pieces can surely be conversation starters. Or, in the case of the aforementioned Ashish shirt, perhaps a conversation avoider —

Here are some more examples of rebelliously  inclined graphic t-shirts from the international runways ;

Simple Minds – Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2013, Milan

Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2013 Milan Fashion Week

Opened, Sasha Luss – Closed, Elizabeth Erm

Authenticity and familiarity were the aims of this collection from Alberta Ferretti. There was something a bit simplistic but without shying away from Ferretti’s trademark romantic details.

A few standout trends included a tendency towards shades of blue, black and white, traditional tartan, the use of rich velvet silks, and a mixing of bright jewel tones. The combination of which marked a standout collection from Ferretti, a departure from the wholly sequined looks from spring, and a hint of fresh modernism that’s sure to be trending come Fall.
