Tag Team: The Graffiti Trend via Aaryn West

Graffiti is often considered an eye sore or public nuisance, but you and I know better than that. And so do a whole load of high profile artists and designers, from the likes of Manish Arora and Moschino, to more mainstream companies like Ikea. In fact, it was the d.i.y. graffiti dressers that were styled into their most recent catalog that sealed the deal on finally getting around to this post!

I love this trend both in practice and in theory; brightly mixed colors, hand drawn typography, urban surfaces, and it’s reference to low-brow art that was traditionally rejected by the art elites and mainstream culture as a whole.

Also, is anyone else already singing the theme tune from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, or is it really just me?

Head to Toe

cdior-fall11

I have noticed a rising trend spanning multiple runway designers and retails stores lately, although I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. Printed maxi dresses are fairly common but now we are seeing other ways of wearing head-to-toe print: rompers and tailored suits. Anytime I see a matching printed suit I can’t help but picture the fabulous elderly women I’ve seen at the grocery store, you know, the kind that wear leather driving gloves when they go into town. I’m not sure whether this printed pant-suit trend will catch on among my generation, but I’m kind of hoping it does. I want to be that little old lady wearing flamboyant, printed suits one day.
