I know this may sound like such a cliche but i genuinely feel that life is what you make it. I mean designers such as Lagerfeld, Slimane, Bailey etc are just selling an idea. The fun bit is taking parts you like from various collections and blending them to give you your own look.
Yes, but I don't think the "idea" or "lifestyle" designers are even doing what they do best anymore. Everyone seems to be integrating everything that every one else is doing so that their items can make Vogue's spread on a certain trend. It's like Donatella doing futurism... while it was an okay collectiona had some decent looks, I long for the days of Donatella doing this "wife of a rockstar", dark, moody, lace and sexy goth idea. I felt that THAT was Donatella... And this is the case with so many other designers. Tom Ford never designed for trends, he created his own unique looks and dresses. A Tom Ford look was always certainly, undoubtedly a Tom Ford look. Some may find them tacky but there were so many subtle details and aesthetic choices in that dress that made it Tom Fords. Today, the same dresses could also be on seven other runways and it works so well for magazines and companies that profit on selling the trends displayed in these magazines but it is soo boring for the fashion lover.
