6 Six Years of ConsciousNess

cons

For six years, H&M´s Conscious collection has grown into beautiful art pieces.  These wonderful designs for S/S 18 are inspired on Swedish artists Karin and Carl Larsson.  Of course, we cannot forget that being from the Conscious line, these fabrics are nonetheless from recycled materials  of Econyl a 100% generated Nylon fibre from nylon waste.  Some of which is recovered from oceans such as fishnets and other plastics.  Unbelievably so, theses neglected materials in our ocean floors have become beautiful fashionable pieces such as summery maxi dresses or even this high-neck lace-imitating wedding dress.

This year’s collection also includes recycled silver from scraps such as these earrings to accessorise this great example of sustainable fashion collection.

Denim Rips Dare to Bare

asos-jeans-1226321

Ripped jeans at the knees are old news. Rips are moving upwards to the derrière and in some cases leaving nothing to the imagination in the case of thong jeans or crotchless jeans from The Ragged Priest. These last ones haven´t had a good reaction from the public and were highly mocked. Personally, these just don’t seem to grow on me..

However, if I had to choose between these buttless jeans and the thong jeans, my decision is clear. Thong jeans look trashy and are pointless strings hanging down legs, which leave not only nothing to the imagination but say nothing in the name fashion.

Tie-Dye Springs Back

The irregular intensity and shades of tie dying are back for Spring/Summer 18. Pharrell Williams´ collaboration with Adidas and Michael Kors have bet on this 90´s trend. While Kors has used this technique in trench coats, summery dresses and pants, Adidas have coloured their sportswear with bold colours and traces of this ghostly print. Harmonious purple hues and strong powerful colours combine in the latter and give off the essence of, which it is based on, the Indian Festival of Holi.

However, this has back fired for Adidas as they have been accused for appropriation by the Hindi community and believe they are using this spiritual celebration for marketing purposes, which in their eyes disrespects the religious act.

On the other hand, Michael Kors has simply turned this once almost-hippy-looking print from 20 years ago to a more sophisticated yet casual look as we can appreciate in his beige tie-dye trench coat or light blue airy dress.

Gucci´s Sans Photography Campaign

I can’t love Gucci´s S/S 18 campaign anymore than what I do. They have gone sans-photography and have used magical illustrations from the Spanish illustrator Ignasi Monreal and I simply find the colours truly hipnotizing. Maintaining Gucci´s strong retro colours but blending in these romantic hues takes you to Utopian Fantasy, as this campaign is called.

Forget about covering your pins with boring plain tights anymore. Thanks to Gucci, we´ll be seeing shimmery legs from now on.  Not only can we avoid shivering on a girl’s night out but can also dazzle as never before! At Gucci´s Spring/Summer 2018 show, models wore these all cover crystal tights (worth a grand!) which are now available to buy.
