White and post-apocalyptic deconstruction is what I would describe as the foundation for the trend that dominated the haute couture collection for Dior this fall.
The hipster music festival fashion trend last year aimed to break away from the 50s flower wreath prim and proper trend that dominated the street style level back in 2013. In a way, it is both a satire and an homage on the 2013 trend that the flower wreath became a staple in the music festival crowd; it showed the transition from the vintage pastel clad satchel-carrying bridesmaid to the whimsical, carefree, and edgy Arctic Monkeys fan.
White is the new black and this includes the representation for the gothic and rebellious cool girl. This was sealed by the inspiration that the movie Mad Max Fury Road brought to the designers like Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto and Donna Karan earlier this year.
Earlier this year, Birkenstock-donning manbun-rocking men, mostly in plain white tees and jeans, overthrew the hip undercut-rocking music festival goer. This is the fashion cultural transition that evidenced people’s desire for a more effortless look, even more than their casual music festival style. The town asked to be painted in white albeit adapting the laid back structure-less hipster fashion and deconstructed shapes that dominated last year. This foresaw the cultural transition from looking casual to looking even more effortless hinted by the Christian Dior Fall 2015 Haute Couture Collection.
