All in fashion

Non-trends and novelty at FW 2019 

Before the fashion deities congregate and distill the trends from this seasons runway shows, I found a few looks that tip the scale in favor of novelty. After all, subtle surprises can be more impactful and subversive. These looks are not meant to administer shocks to the system, but rather to inspire, to appropriate as you will with the hope that there could still be life in them yet.

A million reasons to love tights

Where would we be without tights when the sun sets at 4:30 P.M. and the temps drop? Surely, the answer is both poorly dressed and freezing, relegated to the likes of denim day in and day out— which isn’t necessarily an offense. But for those who seek a bit of variety, tights provide an economical diversion to what can otherwise be the winter doldrums.
