This Fall’s Punk Is About Inclusion Not Alienation
Posted Aug 04, 2011
I’m all about Reinventing Punk, and infusing it into this Fall’s Fashion Round-up. Leather is such a huge part of the 2011’s Fall Season, it stands to reason that the “Punk-Bohemian” look that’s been dominating this Spring/Summer (Think Balmain’s Spring 2011 Motorcycle-Chic) would stay alive, and makes it’s way into the Autumn-Aesthetic.
The amazing Ginta Lapina models these fabulous looks from Dolce & Gabanna, Marc Jacobs, Burberry (via fashiongonerogue), and with the brilliant eye of Dimitri Hyacinthe behind the lens – The Punk Movement is Here.
What I find exciting about this layout and what it means for us, is the variety of pieces involved, and how they are layered. Although this is referred to as “Punk-Glam”, I see it as an elevated version of the look, bringing in cleaner lines and high-end fabrics – for more Fashion-Forward appeal.
Adding Chic Wool-Capes, Faux-Fur Vests, Lace Jackets, and Button-Down Silk Shirts to the more edgy pieces – Leather Pants, Leopord-Prints, and Vertical-Stripes – gives the entire look a Modern-Extreme vibe that allows more of us to enjoy the trend. 2011’s Punk Look is all about inclusion rather that alienation. Let’s all get on board.
