Fashion has a dying trend?
Trends sometimes suck.
But styles don’t.
Because, it’s better.
,,A dress is neither tragedy or painting. It’s charming and ephemeral, not a durabale work of art. Fashion must die and die fast, in order that the trade survives. As soon fashion passes, then it’s more improved. We can’t save that, who is dead” - Coco Chanel (I translated it, don’t judge me)
I agree with her on some points. But not all trends are dead. Wearing black or white is never dying trend. Wearing underwear and outwear is a never dying trend. What is dying, is how they look.
How she said ,,A dress is neither tragedy or painting. It’s charming and ephemeral, not a durable work of art.”. Clothes can look tragic or really good to all of us. Of cousre, there are opinions, who change uncontrollably, but you get the point. Yes it’s charming and ephemeral, but I 50/50 agree that work of art is not durable. It depends if it’s durable or not. Having black is dying? No. Having a painting you like, and has a meaning is dying? It depends, but still no :D. Minimalism is dying? No. Not all things durable, but you can’t say that everything is not durable.
,,Fashion must die and die fast, in order that the trade survives”. Why fashion has to die, because of the trade? I got confused on this point, but with a little bit help, i got the point. If we go with fashion trends, i agree with dying fashion. But there are other styles, who doesn’t follow trends like vintage, goth, minimalistic and others who goes more with older fashion. And trading... trades needs always new fashion trends, for the money and popularity. Because if they going to sell something old and not trendy, they won’t get the income. So, trends can die because of the trade, but styles don’t.
,,As soon fashion passes, then it’s more improved. We can’t save that, who is dead”. Old fashion is, yea, more improved, agreed. And, still on trend side, yea, we don’t save what is dead. But really worthy styles, who are alive today, they are not dead. They still living. Never dying.
Trends. They always die. Styles - never. Because trend is a trend. They live a bit and they die fast. Styles never die. They are born, and they will live forever.
