This week, the S.O.S. – Selected On SHOPenauer column is dedicated to Halloween, with a focus on avant-garde fashion told with a pinch of (black) humor.
“Here it is another article about Halloween”, “Ah, that’s original”
blablabla … STOP!
Ok yes it is true, this time we are talking about Halloween (as everyone else anyway) and I can already hear those sentences coming out your mouth.
So rest assured, no psycho dramas. You will not read anything taken from Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde or from Frankenstein (although … if you wish you can always look at the Prada show about this theme).
Indeed, we think that traditions as such should remain, true. But now everything is contaminated, the food, the heart, the mind, the air and obviously also the fashion … For this reason we have decided to propose you for this Halloween, a style a little out of the box: the AVANT-GARDE.
What is the avant-garde?
According to the dictionary, the avant-garde represents an invention that fights in opposition to the traditions already identified and accepted, suggesting a revolutionary formulation. In several sentences, one could also think that this avant-garde is a progressive inventive movement, which has emerged from a spirit of denial and revolt in opposition to safe traditionalism. And all this has grown to become synonymous with innovation, progress and rebellion.
In the fashion world, the avant-garde is characterized by a strong character. Many designers were asked to represent this fashion and what came out well or badly was a refined, mysterious, intimidating, intriguing, captivating, sophisticated, unusual, non-conformist product. In short, everything and more.
To make it simple, I put it under a rather elementary equation:
avant-garde fashion = theatricality.
In fact, if we want to be honest, avant-garde clothes are more a piece of art than anything else. They are unusual, catch the eye and don’t let you go unnoticed.
But the truth is that some of these are not even so suitable for walking down the street, also because among us, I don’t think it is so comfortable to sit wearing a skirt made of spikes (then oh, there are those who like it, but I would go into that more about pornhub…). BUT if you already leave home knowing that you will be standing all evening then … why not ?!
I mean honestly, if we consider the fact that every time we go out, some force us every day to see their “jumbles of stuff outfit”, we certainly can’t be shocked to see one with a skirt with spikes rather than …
Where there is no imagination, there is no horror – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
So go ahead with the avant-garde style, always remembering to wear them in special occasions, such as Halloween!
Wanda Witch who?
Wanda Witch you a Happy Halloween!
