    Fine, fine...you may be right. I was taught that Armani invented deconstruction and this seems to be the general opinion of the British fashion press. Maybe later designers have mis-used the word 'deconstruction' because the term was originally coined to describe Armani's debut collection? I don't really care....it's just what I have always been told.

    I'm pretty sure that Helmut Lang revived the minamalist movement which would fit with minmalism's roots (Bahaus etc.)....

    Well everyone has their own interpretation. Minimalism by Bauhuas standards may be related to Lang but it was also more geometric,graphic and architecturally inspired than what the Italians were doing. Just like Deconstruction,although the Japanese and Belgians have it common,I think it's a different approach.

    Absolutetly true chick, i fidn this a utterly inspirational movment. :heart:

    i knwo many people here dis liek juicy couture but In LA people ahve started mixing Juicy with chanel and dior homme, its very intresting casual meets formal look. :heart:



    on a note on Deconstruction I think we are forgeting that Rei Kawakuboa nd Vivienne westwood's punk clothes where also very early deconstructionism. :blush:

    My favorite? Making informal formal. Luxury paired with grunge. This kind of relates to the "mix" thing Chick was talking about. Casual attire never used to be accepted as stylish. And, I absolutely love to pair fur with jeans... or stilettos with jeans... and I can't stand tennis shoes!!

    I love that - it makes casual wear so much more fun, sort of like laid back luxury, if that makes any sense :blush:

    I'm just glad I can now find a pair of flat shoes that look good.

    I don't know if this is good or bad. We can now shop all labels no matter where we live (Gap, Zara, Prada, Gucci ) but I miss going to a foreign country and seeing different clothes and fashions. I miss buying something in Paris that caused a sensation back in Madrid. We all dress the same, albeit with more freedom that ever!
