Technology in Fashion and Wearing Digicon
February 1, 2013 § 3 Comments
In fashion, everything old is new again as trends fade and time ticks along, eventually all things coming back around for a repeat visit.
Much like literature, which many believe has a finite number of plots (that writers continuously repeat), so too does fashion repeat its own basic themes.
Last spring, the influx of printed denim reintroduced the idea of covering your body in crazy prints, as I’d already done back in the eighties.
Since then, designers have hopped on what appears to be a continuation of the theme, artfully moving into what feels like new territory with the advent of digicon; digitally created prints and patterns (on fabric) cut into all possible shapes.
New bodycon means that women are seen thanks to photographic prints that scream, “look at me!” The shapes can take on whatever form of any basic theme, but the clothes are different because of the technological influence.
These clothes cover and show; highlight and hide. You can wear the galaxy on a kaftan or leggings with swans kissing at your knees. From high fashion to street styling and every price point in between, designers have embraced what might be a brand new twist on a brand new plot.
What do you think? Would you wear any of these pieces?
