What are you guys liking from Fashion Week so far? Moschino is p cool but who the hell is going to buy this
ladies and gentlemen, the reason why /fa/ is a shithole filled with edgy streetwear highschoolers
>liking Jeremy Scott work in Moschino
kek, i bet you liked the pizza hut merch garments
No one buys anything from the runway shows. When's the last time you saw anything like this shit even available for retail, let alone on the streets?
Fuck outta here
>ladies and gentlemen, the reason why /fa/ is a shithole filled with edgy streetwear highschoolers
Whatever dude, listen, no one ever said that /fa/ had to be full of wannabe fashion designers peddling ridiculous concept clothing that no one will ever actually wear.
Thought it was Jessica Jones villain
You're thinking about this whole thing wrong. Very, very few people even in fashionable circles in fashionable citiea buys runway designer gear. That's not the point of runway fashion.
Runway fashion is for designers to show off high concept looks and abstract thinking about where clothes are going. Some details may get watered down into certain aspects of made-for-market clothing, but obviously not all.
i´m not asking for Vogue editors, ipm just asking for some taste and basic knowledge, prasing Moschino stuff like if it were some Dior shit is just ridiculous, i can see the aesthetic appeal, i do like the texture of the collection but the whole aesthetic and style is just horrid
I can't tell what's print and what's real on that suit. Also I wonder if he can see out of those glasses or if it's like driving to work late in the winter before your defrost kicks in. p. dope look either way.
Unfortunately, since Jeremy Scott has made Moschino very very very very obnoxious, spoiled rich kids with too much $$ will eat it up.
I hate to say, though, if the clothes were in less obnoxious colors, I would kind of enjoy the concept.
what are the point of runway shows? none of that shit even gets produced or sold, and nobody would ever even wear 99% of it anyways. isn't it all just a giant art show? but how do the designers or models actually get money when nobody buys anything?
Your average consumer will buy into the permanent collection basics, accessories, bags, and cosmetics that a brand might also produce in order to attain some form of the fantasy presented on the runway. A girl from suburbia can't afford the $3000 Dior dress but she can pop over to Sephora and buy the same shade of Dior lipstick they used in the show, or buy herself a Dior wallet from the department store. Even with Rick Owens, what's everyone on /fa/ buying? It's not the draped metallic leather tunics, but mostly the shoes, jersey t-shirts, pod shorts, etc. People bought their own little piece of that fantasy because they probably saw the runway show all over the internet and thought, "hey, I like what this guy's doing. It's kinda crazy, but there's some wearable stuff here and there." The really crazy pieces that never hit the shelves are for the serious collector who has built a relationship with the brand/designer over the years and gets invited to order such pieces at trunk shows and such, those people can be kind of eccentric like they invented baby carrots or something. Those pieces might also be sent out to fashion magazines to be photographed in editorials, which someone will see in the magazine and then might check out the brand's offerings on ssense or something to broaden their fashion horizons. Nobody would look at a runway show or buy fashion magazines if every model wore leggings and ugg boots.
I honestly believe that London and New York FW have been incredibly disappointing for multiple seasons now. Tokyo and Paris are the only big ones that actually manage to meet (my) expectations, Milan often is hit or miss.
The vast majority is being sold. You simply dont see these pieces at your local mall. The only things that arent being sold are the really extreme pieces, but those make up for 1% of the collection. If they are made by the 'right brand' then they are almost always being sold in sales.
Runway exists for inspiration, to sell ideas and explain the concept behind a collection. They also have artistic value, just pay attention to some of the venues. High fashion is way more about single pieces than it is about entire outfits. When you see a catwalk show youre not look for outfits to buy, but for single pieces that might serve as an addition to your wardrobe. Be it a pair of shoes, shirt or coat. Buying an entire outfit is an option, but many people simply lack the confidence to do so.
>get money when nobody buys anything
The sales-people at my local Prada store tend to tell me that I am one of the few people there who actually buys pieces from the catwalk collections. Most of the money is made by selling shit like bags.
The catwalk collections give the brand a certain reputation and make it possible for the brand to unload shit loads of overpriced garbage. See all the big French and Italian houses. Hermes probably sells more shitty belts, LV more branded trash bags and Burberry more 'Made in Taiwan' raincoats than anything else. All you need is an 'exclusive' reputation and all of a sudden people will fight over your shit. Keep in mind the vast, vast majority of the mankind (including new money families) sees designer-clothes as a status symbol. And thats the thing: As soon as your brand is a status symbol you can do whatever the fuck you want. Catwalk shows help to uphold your reputation and pull in new gullible retards.

What shoes is the model wearing in that photo? If you can't give that info atleast tell me which collection is being shown in image or what type of shoe is shown there?
Am i claiming this isn't ready to wear? A lot of items on shows are wearable. Some of the more experimental items won't sell good, but it's still there to tie the whole show together.
I'm actually a locally known live painter and get invited to literally everyone's fucking party. Even the artiest are full of people wearing the streetwear and millennial core that you faggots don't understand because you sit here wanking at runway models instead of actually living life.
No one wears this bullshit
Cardigans also fall under the category sweater. You can literally buy it at H&M womens department.
I'm not saying the fit is bad, I think the joggers and shirt look good, but I think when it comes to JW Anderson WOMENS is considerably better then MENS.
>how do the designers or models actually get money when nobody buys anything?
the models get money for sleeping with Hedi. Hedi gets money for sleeping with Karl. Karls gets money for dressing rich old women who have no purpose in life
>The really crazy pieces that never hit the shelves are for the serious collector who has built a relationship with the brand/designer over the years and gets invited
You can literally buy all the runway pieces in the Paris/Milan/London stores after fashion week. You don't need "special invite".
retards, people do buy runway pieces, it's fucking ready to wear
pic related, all ended up in his antwerp store
>ready to wear shows
>not meant to be worn
I like how this fat mexican cuck lord seems to get stupider by the day too
for the better I guess so it's easier to just ignore everything you say this way
ofc you caan buy it, no one stops you from buying fleece pants and pink fur coats, but the main objective of these garments is to show off the artistic and technic abilties of the designer and brand, its like doing an interesting gimmick just to show off your skills. A collection without these garments would be bland and boring, ofc people will lean more to more conventional garments due to their versatility as this dude (>>10836297) explains it
damn, you ignorant plebeian faggots now really rustled my jimmes, nobody cant be this stupid, i cant comprehend how some of the many kids here even get to dress socially acceptable
