yo, listen up! there’s a revolution going on. you heard it here first. sexy fashion is being overthrown by elegant practical fashion and it is happening right under our noses. tom ford and marc jacobs, kings of all things sexy and sultry, have abdicated their thrones and fashion queens, clare waight keller of chloé, mary kate and ashley olsen of the row, and phoebe philo of céline – all women in their 30s and 40s- have stormed the castle. with women now at the helm of fashion’s most powerful houses, fashion is becoming increasingly more centered on what is flattering and practical and comfortable and less focused on things that look good only if you are in your 20s and weigh 90 pounds dripping wet. these very modern fashion queens seem to have a better grasp of what the modern woman is doing and where she is headed. and the look is ageless – hitting the perfect note from 20 to 70 and that is an amazing feat. . . i get that you could sell practical elegance to the boomers, but getting the 20-something’s to also buy in? now we’re talking about a revolution . . .
i have hooked you up with my favorite looks from the row and chloe resort collections. these collections stand sentinel – now you know what is coming at you over the next couple of seasons, or years (decades??? too strong??)???
