Messages Are The Message For Spring ’14
In the age of Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and RSS readers, our news feeds are more flooded than ever, and the latest collections gave us even more to process. On the runways, models were transformed into walking billboards with clothes that were quite literally statement-making. Whether the message was political (see: Kenzo’s “No fish, no nothing” manifesto against overfishing) or just plain weird (Jeremy Scott’s “Earth Sucks” transmission), Spring is all about wearing your status update on your sleeve. In the streets, novelty T-shirts splashed with tongue-in-cheek phrases like “Sorry for Partying” or “Bite Me” also commanded attention.
