maybe the fragments of the future are everywhere, but it takes some time for them to be incarnated as the future.
they are waiting for their complement to come. so some of them can be looking even like old things already.
or they may first appear as expensive useless stuff without being recognized as the future, just like some of CCP inventions do. but curiosity and sacrifices are necessary so that the future can start and develop.
also it can come from a sheer personal viewpoint. so the universality of it cannot be noticed soon.
the last time a designer named maurizio altieri very quietly presented his collection which partly dealt with the
future, the buyers did not order anything from the future line. the work is yet to see the light of the day.
that's usually the way we advance. we hardly leap.
what is quite futuristic is that instead of 'traditional' make up, young people show up to Parisian parties with written messages on their face
in my book, fashion is so out of fashion at the moment
imho the future seems DIY anarchic and fashionably 'unfashionable'
i can totally sense this anarchic/diy thing coming as well
i feel that fashion is just catering to itself at the moment
also with the freshly graduated students who are trying to make 'fashion' and are trying to play the fashion game while they should be out there making ugly weird unpopular stuff and excite us.
but everyone is just making stuff for lady gaga to wear, ugh.
