Last week I watched an episode of “Bachelor” (which could be “hate to see” as a better term), but the most astonishing thing I’ve seen is not that Annaliese collapsed from a traumatic bumper car. This is fashion. In the first appointment with another girl, Becca, Arie, she was surprised by her private engagement with Rachel Zoe. The stylist’s designer made a brief guest appearance and helped Becca try a dozen glittering, seventies-style gowns – and finally, Arie announced that she had everything saved. Later, he was nowhere else to pull out a huge box, revealing a pair of Christian Louboutin stilettos emitting five inches. At dinner, he told her to keep the diamond earrings “borrowed” from Neil Lane. And they say money can not buy love!
Of course, this pile of designer gifts has nothing to do with the plot, but for the “bachelor” it is a new feeling. (My theory is that producers are trying to relate these young women to fashion brands early because most of them become “style influencers” at the end of the show). However, what struck me most is that there is nothing to do with fashion in 2018. Bachelor and single girls have 35 seasons combined and they are one of the most popular shows ever. You do not expect them to have at least one basic understanding of what is fashion?
Obviously not. I can even say that most of the Cheap Halloween Costumes you see on television today can not reflect modern fashion. For starters, the “fashion TV” era is over, with the exception of “reality show” such as “Project Runway” and “Next Top Model”, even those series are also jumping sharks. When Christian Siriano won the “Project Runway” project in the mid-1990s, all the fashions were about charms, red carpet dresses, and runway shows. Needless to say, it has become more casual since then. The girls are investing in hoodies instead of party dresses, while designers perform shows on the streets. More importantly, fashion has become more accessible. As early as the early 1990s, the premise of Fashion House was to give you an insider’s perspective, who brought you backstage to Stephen Sprouse’s new series, and before you can find the stories online , To show you Naomi Campbell’s beauty procedures. But in 2018, the best way to discover what people are wearing or what’s going on Fashion Week is on Instagram, not on television.
Of course, the exception is if you want to see the fashion completely from another era, be it the eighties or the nineteenth century. Now many of the best television shows are over: Victoria began in 1837; the fantastic Lady Messer In the fifties, the second season of The Crown took place in the 1960s, with luminescence and unfamiliar things in the 1980s Tonight, the assassination of Jenny Versace: the American crime story will recreate the late 90s. You can not talk about these shows without talking about clothes. Maybe your friends are addicted to Nancy’s cute style in strange things, or they are drawn to Victorian clothing. The fashion industry is curious about The Assassination of Gianni Versace and how to pay tribute to the designer’s iconic and highly influential collection. (Vogue’s Laird Borrelli-Persson recently digitized Gianni’s final show if you wanted to preview it.) Originally, since the house was not involved in the production of this series (and was explained twice based on the book on which it was based) The division did not have the luxury borrowed from the archive; they traced the original 90s at consignment stores or reality copies.
When the plot around Jenny was murdered more than his fashion influence, the assassination came just as the 90s had a fever. Nostalgia is the driving force behind all these shows, so it is no surprise that they made the best outfits; we’ve written down fashion obsession with the past, and if you’re looking for inspiration in sewing, you’re in the crown “Find it, not” None. ” In fact, the only place you actually see the “now” fashion is E! Red carpet coverage, but never out of touch with the Cheap Halloween Costumes we actually wear. Perhaps the real problem is that today’s fashion is made up of two extremes: You’re not wearing a fashion celebrity at the awards ceremony (or on Instagram), or you’re a “real person” in sportswear. Where is the middle? Maybe this also returned to these nostalgic TV shows. Nicolas Ghesquière showed a “stranger” T-shirt at the recent Louis Vuitton show, which was a clever styling trick at the time, but it might simply outline how most women now relate to fashion And where do they find their inspiration.
