They are two things which could easily make fashion shows unpleasant:
First, they force us to look ahead and to ignore the delightful notion of “carpe diem”.
Second, models are often turned by designers into sulky aliens. Wasn’t it more pleasant when models would show a bright smile? Forget! The word “smile” has been banned from runways a long time ago.
Let’s be positive: fashion shows are above all a unique opportunity to discover the coming trend(s) …
Though my blog and my scarf CD are mainly dedicated to women’s scarves, I also like once in a while to share news about men’s scarves.
What is true for women is obviously true for men: Fall-winter 2013-14 will see the come back of men’s scarves. Not exactly the kind of classic scarves Gary Grant used to wear…. Judge for yourselves: here is a first selection of what fashion designers have imagined. More to come.
If you like bulky scarves, Yohji Yamamoto or Kolor - a young and succesful Japanese brand – are a must. Who wouldn’t be cozy with such warm scarves?
Trussardi has invented a new concept: the all in one turtleneck scarf – an extra large and cozy wrap which will keep your neck warm. Show off? No. Fashion. Just fashion.
Collars up! Gucci prefers small flowery scarves discreetly tucked into a coat, a sweater, or a jacket. A little touch of feminity in this, don’t you think?
Vivienne Westwood remains under the charm of her last trip in the Sahara desert… Get one scarf and receive a free camel…
Georgio Armani and Dries Van Noten both think a flowery scarf is the best way to survive a cold winter
And Dolce Gabbana is / are still in love with barocco designs - and carpets…
Now… Killing question… Gentlemen, please tell me : what is your favorite scarf designer? Ladies, please tell me : which of these scarves - if any - will your hubby wear next winter? Mine hasn’t made his mind yet… He (and I) are still working on it!
Cannot wait to hear from you.
