We had seen it before, kind of. Not the very chic, high-fashion, embroidery-filled, pailletes-full gowns. But the cool guys between all the high fashion brands. First Acne comes to mind, maybe 3.1. Phillip Lim, Jil Sander, Balenciaga and so on. There were a few brands, where one used to think that they will kind of change the fashion game. But Vetements changed it totally. Making new jeans out of old ones might not be a new idea, but how come paying 1k for jeans is ok or even a good idea?
I truly have to say that i have no true explanation.
It just might be an image created by the designers. It is like a joke. It all started with the famous DHL Shirt, does anyone remember?
It was like making jokes about serious brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Co., who’s famous status symbol is there Logo. Maybe it was even meant critically, concerning the crazy going hype with all the logos on bags, shoes and clothing. The best example is their sweater. Still they have the same price tags on.
I personally think that it just fits perfectly in the ongoing hype of the 80’s and 90’s
which is accompanied by the very youthful and gothic-like looks, especially by using german words like „Polizei“, celebrating being different. So it definitely is not revolutionary, but still gives enough fresh air to this whole circus.

Now that the first flowers start to bloom and the oh so loved insects start to swim in your glass of maracuja juice you just ordered 2 seconds ago, you realize that something is changing. Animals you thought were dead, come back. And thank god for that. We’re calling it spring. And just like a snake, which likes to get rid of his skin every now and then, we like to change our style dramatically or at least wear something that still can not be found in our closet. Good for us, that online shops like to get rid of their clothes as well. The Fast Fashion retailers seem to have a never ending season sale, where you sure might get some cool stuff to. But the good stuff still lies in the shelves of the big fishes.
Here some inspirations to get now:
I know its totally ridiculous, but i love anything with stars and planets so why not get this Valentino beauty at mytheresa?
I’m still thinking to get these, because when would you not look like 1/2 horse 1/2 human and still be centaur cool? Just get them at stylebop.com if you want to join my hairy team!
Last, but of course not least and actually because i have no clue about how to create a gallery with links, i would like to put emphasis on the following pair of not-skinny jeans. I need those Jonathan Saunders red flared pants, because i need to look like a more dramatic Robespierre. The Rachel Comey khaki x jeans are perfect for the upcoming weather paired with a mens shirt et voila! Get them at avenue32.com, which have a super big sale right now.
