In the face of another economic crisis, one said to be worse than before, escapism is on the fashion mind.
I’ve noticed a lot of dance-related trends. Longchamp’s new ad campaign centres on the free expression of dance. Dancing With The Stars just completed its 13th successful season. From Gucci to (the new remake of) The Gatsy, the flapper is clearly the girl of the moment.
Frills and fringes, we’ve seen aplenty and adapted many. What’s curious is another fashion trend emerging from the dancehalls: the mullet dress.
The drama of the dress makes for a showstopping red carpet statement. In 2010, January Jones made her presence felt in a blue Versace. Later, Jessica Alba had her turn in Valentino.
The trickle-down effect is much faster than expected. S/S 2012 runways showed a slew of the mullet dress, but adventurous dressers have already gone to town with it.
