Can there ever be a rebellion in fashion again? Or has every new trend been done, a slightly more modern twist added to the original, but still the basis of the trend remains. The main trend that springs to mind when I think of rebellion is grunge, but how many times can a fashion designer reference Kurt Cobain, youth and plaid shirts before it is essentially a re-run of a few seasons ago. An example of this is Saint Laurent, although the collection is amazing, I think the fashion world expected a little more than a re-run. Especially since the change to the legendary fashion house' name and the promise of a new modern take on the brand. But how modern can the 90's be? Especially when its already, well, been the 90's, and its already been covered more then a few times after that. Sometimes calling something a rebellion can doom it to fail. How are you rebelling if its already been done?
Fashion each season is already a rebellion as it stretches our perception of what to wear, its progressive and rebels against the norm. So with that point, every new season is a rebellion and no one trend can really be labelled this. In keeping with the topic of this post I decided to wear all black and rebel against the 90's grunge plaid shirt. What do you think of the rebel trend? Do you feel its just a re-run of previous seasons?
