After reading the section in the latest April Vogue Aus edition called 'Vogue Gets Digital', I've definitely noticed a shift in focus towards everything futuristic and digitally remastered.
An epiphany struck at one such quote: 'In the information age, where rapid communication, technological advancements and social  networking have presented us with a new global community, it seems close to anything is possible'. I really cannot debate that. In the 21st century, exclusivity is rare, fashion is immediate, and undoubtedly more fast-paced than ever before. Case in point: runways shows are LIVE-streamed to any dreaming couch potato such as myself and backstage photos can be found (maybe too) conveniently online.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I mean where else would I get my information from? I'm not front row or even industry. It's just this rapid technology has the capability to reach thousands of consumers in such a short span of time. Everyone and their grandma can become a critique. Therefore, designers are constantly caught up in the need to create something so new and fresh, it's borderline thrilling (see Alexander Wang S/S 2013). Shock-value ... I think that's what I'll call it.

Yes... I've realised I'm not talking much about this holographic trend instead going on a rant about something I haven't quite come to terms with myself. The key is not to quote me, but take what I've said and notice it yourself. Personally, I think that we all just want to keep up with the times by dressing like an oil-slicked space martian (go for it!).

  10. This, by far, is my favorite trend for this year. I love apparel that is futuristic in tone, and anything with metallics wins my heart. I love metallics so much that I opted out on paying student loans for a month and procure Alexander Wang's silver loafer heels instead. I know, terrible. The Burberry Prorsum trench coats are my favorite. A girl can only dream, right? Thanks for posting these!
