As times progress, people are getting jaded and we simply had enough with things that we have already used to. Nothing seems interesting anymore and the same goes with fashion. We have pretty much seen it all. It feels like we have caught the “been there and worn that” syndrome. So we are always on the lookout for something different, something fresh and something new to cure our little disease.
Fashion designers for one thing, always know what people want. They push the envelope to the very core every season with their collections. Everything has to be innovative and looks like nothing that has been showcased previously to the runways. Some manage to balance out that element with the terms of wearability, but there are certain designers who come out with designs that are very ambitious that they fit better in the art museum than the fall/winter runways.
Here are the low-downs of fashion innovations for the past few seasons:
Bernhard Willhelm’s H2T print
It’s hard enough to pull off the graphic sweater look but heavy print from top to toe? We have to say it’s impossible. Even those crazy fashion-blog posers can’t get away with this one.
Walter Van Beirendonck’s pastel leatherman
This is just too weird. It’s like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre gone Broadway or something. Okay, maybe the shoes are acceptable.
Gaultier’s skirt over pants
It’s a look very debatable even on women. Just decide on one. This one looks like a skirt not even a kilt.
Givenchy’s heavy nose ring
Riccardo Tisci’s designs are definitely very high fashion. There are some very gorgeous pieces from his Fall 2012 collection but these nose rings are just too crazy. It ruined the total look. Instead, it was the only thing that you could see throughout the show.
Jeremy Scott’s plastic fantastic
Let’s not even mention the bindi and nose chain. Would you wear plastic sweater and glittery pink kilt?
