Are You Ready To Revisit The Classics?
For an industry as obsessed with change as fashion is, there certainly were plenty of designers thinking about the past this season. Miuccia Prada said she was revising things she did in the nineties (though, it must be said, most of her almost-15-year-old designs look just as modern today as they did during the Clinton years). Marc Jacobs, who told us it was refreshing to stop trying so hard to be new, tweaked signatures like tweedy three-quarter-length coats and long skirts. And at Dolce & Gabbana, a video showing Domenico Dolce expertly tailoring a jacket was a moving backdrop to the parade of trademark sexy suits he and Stefano Gabbana sent down the runway. As far as trends go, this return to roots is about as customer-friendly as they come. After all, how else would these pieces become classics if they weren’t beloved in the first place?
