While a big trend coming out of fashion week is 70s, I'm feeling much more of a 60s vibe. Of course, fashion weeks around the world have perhaps never been more diverse and less easy to trendcast than now. Some collections are paring down, showing fewer looks and less extravagent clothes at lower price points and others are going the opposite; more looks, more embellishment, etc. While I'm certain in ten or twenty years we will be able to look back on this time and pick out some predominant styles, at the moment things seem more geared towards the individual than the mass than ever before. It's so easy to identify a photograph from the 50s or 70s based on dress--how easy will it be to indentify those taken now by the same markers? It's not that people in the past have never clinged to trends past their expiration date, but that mass fashion seems less uniform than ever before.
