The idea behind this cynicism is the Insta genre generic street style that is so out there these days!
The quotes in the downfall of the most amazing celeb street style is the cultivation of the ease of getting out there. With immense filters, influencer techniques and outrageous street wear- people are goofing up on the street as if it were a runway. “No Swati, you do not wear a hideous all fluorescent pink jumpsuit with puffed sleeves. You look at them on TV, look in disbelief and let it go!”
This is the digital media boom, the times of peak peacock fashion! Famous fashion critic Suzy Menkes in her article ‘The Circus of Fashion’ in The New York Times clearly speaks about this phenomena. There is a huge difference between original and show off as she says. Earlier, there was a non-poised woman playing with her scarf, not drawn by the cameras or the pose edit or any stylist, the man that sat on the ice cream shop was real, it was all real!
This digital boom that we are talking about, which is invariably in use by every fashion stock out there- has turned everything camera aligned and a show off pop. The Street Wear as designated is supposed to make you feel comfortable, it should be a smart moment for your onlookers, it shouldn’t blast off like “Hey look a runner from the runway!”.
This unimagination of the new street trends especially the celeb street style proclaiming a shift in the fashion era is a little unspoken for. You cannot do anything in the name of fashion right, there are boundaries when it comes to an appearance- especially if you are the icon. I do not say that you have to be a 100% perfection at all times, but love is it so difficult to know that what you are wearing is wrong? There is a trail of unimagination from the scape of “daring”. Its not daring, its your affluence that lets you dare into hideousness!
This is a profitable time for self promotion, a time to resuscitate your hippie agenda!
Everybody is in a mode of self, but lest do they understand that this is a loss of individualism and a rise of trend. Your reality is exposed when you aren’t posing for the camera! As Sarah Mower puts it in her opinion on the Balenciaga Pre Fall 2018 show, “Well, just a thought, but are the boring tweed pantsuits the most interesting thing in this Balenciaga collection?” We are moving back to the simple in our heads! There is a rush towards uncomplicated, soothing designs.
With the advent of celeb street style stalwarts like Lady Gaga, Anna Dello Russo we have gotten into the picturesque of colors, bold, surreal vogue and so so much of honest advertisement of creativity some amazing, some not so much! But the question remains that how much of it is true?
“It feels real”, is the new sideline the fashion world is engrossing themselves in. There are tides of extremities in all art spheres but the shift is what comes into notice with the change of affections. The era of Gaga and Cyrus is losing fail, it is time for simple plaid, checks, denims and less of unforgiving eruptions!
