Let me start off first by reinforcing that I have never claimed to be a writer, if I am anything at all then I’m just a humble wearer. Alas I know clothes not words. And for lack of better words I feel that for far too long we have been indulging in a little fashion fantasy but haven’t been able to express my exact conflicting feelings for the sweetness of the current aesthetic until a certain male designer summed it up in a interview this week when they described the current climate as ‘sugary’. How true. Everything at the moment just feels so cute, delicate and sweet – thanks in part to Gucci’s massive influence on the industry over the last 3 years with its feminine tinged vibes. But that doesn’t mean I’m against a little lace or pastels or in this case pink stripes by Stella McCartney, I just think maybe it’s time for a little balance so that things don’t feel so artificial and contrived. Why can’t we have a little more naturalness? After all, don’t forget too much sugar is not good for anyone.
