I think the most exciting thing for me, though is when I see a certain style of clothing that has suddenly become normal or boring, and then I see it worn or presented in a different way. Basically the uncool is cool again, and the cycle is so fast.
It seems like fashion culture as a whole is really focused on vintage, and also the past as well...At least it seems so, with the constant regurgitating of images on tumblr, to designers collections featuring vintage to not-so-far-away fashion (even from the late 90s and early 00's).
It kind of makes me wonder if we've all just digested it too quickly these past few decades or so?
The rate at which decade oriented trends are coming back seems to be escalating at a quick level.
For example, web sites like Etsy have a policy that vintage must be at least 20 years old. But for anyone familiar with street fashion culture is well aware that trend starters are already wearing many pieces normally associated with fashion from '98, '99..etc.
I think for me personally, part of the fun in vintage fashion is the nostalgic aspect of it. The idea that when I mix certain pieces I'm into at the time, it expresses the complexity of who I am, and things I have enjoyed in the past...But I wonder if this shift in trending vintage will have a major counter cultural term in all things "new" and "avant-garde."
But maybe the new and avant-garde is actually a hyper-mixing of meeting yesterday with the future.
