Fashion Charts XXIII

or 'Something like a Spring/Summer 2016 trend report'

1. Power Bottoms (as seen at Vivienne Westwood, Xander Zhou, Moschino)
A new hem line is no hem line. The new trouser shape is no trouser shape. Briefs, put briefly. Shiny, tiny, revealing.

2. Sexotism (as seen at Xander Zhou, Thom Browne, Louis Vuitton)
Dresses for a new gaysianetic Japonism. With Asian silk brocade and tabi clogs, covered in dragons, birds and the Fuji mountains.

3. Little White Number (as seen at Acne Studios, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Gucci)
From boyhood to bed, to the streets, and straight back to bed. Made up (knitted) twin set clothes for making out and staying in.

4. Topless Volume (as seen at Hood By Air, Duckie Brown, J.W. Anderson)
Blown-up wide leg trousers that demand full-on attention, best worn by (almost) topless hookers in heels and latex later.

5. Perverse Touch (as seen at Kenzo, Matthew Miller, Hood By Air)
Three-dimensional fabric manipulations that scream for tactile harassment of their wearer. Scruffy pyramids, crinkly wrinkles and vulgar ruffles.

Trends do not exist anymore. But familarities.
