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.

It all started with some Hooligans in England, was adopted by the Punks and now we see every other girl or boy wearing them. Its the bomber jacket. The great part about them is, that you can wear them to every style. The one that appears the most, must be the casual style. Wearing some Jeggins, sneakers and a bomber over it. And no offense at all! It looks super cool and comfy. But when you don’t like seeing others with your clothes on, you might not want to wear bomber jackets that way anymore.
Gucci had some sequined silky ones and ultra metallic ones, in their last show, which i guess all of us know thanks to social media.
I really like what Alessandro Michelle did here, even if some people think he just copied the Tennenbaums. I just do not like these silky blousons too much with the japanese prints or other flower like looking prints. I did wear these kind of blousons like 3 years ago? From h&m i guess. So not that revolutionary for me. But still good-looking.
These are the more ladylike versions of the „bomber“, i personally like the original version best. Wearing a navy or khaki bomber over a blazer, or girly dress can make your look go from a 24 to 1000000. Here have some inspos.

Good options here are the Alpha Industries Ma-1 Jacket, which is a all time basic.
But many many designers do have bomber jacket models right now. Philipp Lim had a very cool one, and so many more that i don’t even know.
This one here is my personal favorite, just waiting for it to get in stock again.
Haven’t seen anybody with this one before. Its just an advice, but don’t get the khaki one.
