Why Fall and Winter 2014 is Making Me Hungry

Fashion houses are experimenting with supermarket inspired designs for Fall/Winter 2014, almost leaving me speechless… almost.

Remember in the nineties when we used to boil children’s toothbrushes until they were just soft enough to bend into bracelets? Or when Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids started carrying around metal lunch boxes and soon every high school cafeteria was filled with images of Scooby Doo and Candy Land. It wasn’t that long ago everyone was making their accessories out of duct tape and Mickey Mouse was a fashion statement.

Somewhere, someone started these things to be different and unique. This is where these kinds of fads come from. Not just design houses like Chanel, not just Moschino, or Forever 21 for that matter. However, it’s mostly up to these designers to determine whether something sticks around. That brings me to the question of what is the difference between a fad and a trend, and how do they start?

A fad is mostly driven by the consumers emotional or lifestyle needs and is famously short-lived,  while a trend has the potential of becoming a long-term influence on a certain market. For example, the gluten free diet may have the potential of just being another popular diet that everyone seems to be trying, however “eating smart” is a trend that seems to be here to stay. I guess we’ll find out if the food branded clothing is just something fun for 2014 or if we’ll actually consider inviting the “golden arches” into our wardrobe for good.

Frosties Maxi Featherweight Ebury by Anya Hindmarch - a cool $2,300
As much as I want to hate the new supermarket accessories or fast food inspired evening gowns, I still want one! The Anya Hindmarch Cornflake handbag is silly yet still tasteful… yes, pun intended.
I’m a big contender for incorporating something controversial or contradicting with a simple “no nonsense” piece. This, to me, is what truly makes someone “stylish.” Being bold, yet balanced is key to a successful wardrobe. So those of you out there daring enough to consider sporting one of these babies, try simple silhouettes and neutral colors to match.
So what’s next? Michael Coors? I bet he’s sorry Karl LAUGERfeld beat him to it. Okay, I’ll stop now.

The bejeweled fruit I can totally work with, it’s Tony the Tiger staring up at me reminding me I spent $1600+ on a cereal box is where I get stuck. However, there’s always an internal conflict in a big purchase like that, isn’t there? For now, I may have to stick learning to homemade versions on YouTube.

    I am in love with the WHOLE Anya Hindmarch collection, especially the bourbon biscuit clutch.

    Where’s my mens Tony the Tiger messenger bag? “They’re Great”!

    Speaking of breakfast-influenced styles, check the bowl hair-cut phenomenon from the mid-90s that sort of had a resurgence last year-ish. Not particularly tasty.
