Reading Vogue Collections I came to realize how austerity dominated the majority of winter shows. Houses like Prada, Junya Watanabe, Jil Sander or Nina Ricci who at first are very different aesthetically speaking, converged to show us gothic, sinister and lugubrious collections.
The crisis is not affecting fashion in monetary terms, but the influence is clear when it comes to creativity: black colour and clean lines are the norm.
I also see an inspiration from German romanticism: Werther, Friedrich...you name it. Either way, I'm in love with this trend and all that represents because it's time to be more thoughtful about our consumption patterns.
