FALL 2014 TRENDS: MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
What’s up with all the STAR WARS references? A couples seasons back COMME DES GARCONS (of course she did it first), went all out with a tribute for her SHIRT line. I even bought my husband the Yoda t-shirt with the saying ‘Much to learn, you still have’ like the one above. I couldn’t resist. Corny and cute. But now for Fall 2014, there they are again, Darth Vader (appearing in PREEN’S collection), Luke Skywalker, R2D2 and C3PO, Yoda and the Death Star all making a grand appearance in RODARTE’S finale. What gives? Is it that we’re all somehow searching for a collective mood-boost with positive messages from the universe? Good vs Evil. Even if that universe doesn’t really exist. It exists on the silver screen so I guess that’s good enough. Or is it that we’re finding vague comfort in childhood references that make us yearn for a better world looking forward into the future with a stylish solar system?
Whatever the answer is, please make it stop. Enough already. I lived through the Star Wars phase once, don’t FORCE it on me again.
