Choose your sides! Are you a pile-it-on pack rat or a stripped-down neat freak? For fashion this season, it seems as though you fall into one of the two contingents: opulent or minimal. Over the top or bare bones. Romantic or realist. Any other parallel examples you have for me?
Breaking News: Hella Bus has just gotten information that Kanye West has been quoted AGAIN saying some “oh no he didn’t” words about Jay Z.
“”I’m really happy for you [Jay Z], I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”
Oh poor Jay Z. He thought his “On to the Next One” futuristic music video would win the heart and soul of our audacious “Power” hungry musician.
Okay back to the nitty gritty here. Turns out Jay-Z, Kanye, and their split-fashion personalities are just the tip of the iceberg. Observe:
We have the forever King of Opulence Alexander McQueen showcasing his Fall line which includes a long-sleeved gilded embroidered dress.
On the other side of the coin, Jill Sander (above) continues to give us clean and slick lines that combine to create a sophisticated look.
Turns out Burberry is on Team Jay-Z, using minimal shapes and basic lines reminiscent of its classic style for the Autumn 2010 line. History lesson: The Fishtail Parka was first developed by the military in 1951 to protect soldiers from the elements and during the 1960’s in the UK the fishtail parka became a symbol of the mod subculture.
