After a few weeks I can finally examine with a cold mind how fashion week looks have changed over the years. Today I will tell you what I saw together with The Fashion Mob team.
Fashion week looks have undergone several changes over the years and today I want to tell you what I saw different from my experience a few years ago and that of September 2019.
In these photos you see the total look by Disbanded that I and the crew of The Fashion Mob, the team of Italian fashion influencers to which I belong, we have chosen for the second day of Milan Fashion Week. Bold colors, artistic prints but in any case nothing transcendental. As well as the rest of the street style we saw on the streets of Milan.
If we make a quantum leap in my past and we go to read together some of my old posts on the Milan Fashion Week of 2012 and 2013, the most common word, referring to the fashion week looks that I saw on the streets, is … circus!
Yeah, because the thing that struck me most during those two experiences was the big band of people dressed so as to make even a drag queen blush.
You can see the fashion week looks I had chosen here and here. Very simple compared to the one that circulated, so as not to deserve even a shot by photographers who instead were hunting the so-called “Martians”, or strange people dressed with whatever had been stuck to them!
In the end the show was more outside the fashion shows than inside.
For 5 years I was away from fashion weeks but then this year I came back with The Fashion Mob and I was really impressed by the Milan Fashion Week 2018 street style. No “Martian” around, we were the most colorful ones !
What happened? How come the fashion week looks I saw are so far from those of 5 years ago?
In my opinion there are two factors:
Milan lost its power as many designers chose other cities to present their collections
Street style fashion is losing grip. Fewer photographers shoot outside the fashion shows and people get tired of hanging out on the streets dressed as Barnum’s circus.
What do you think happened?
