There will be a silhouette for everyone but the key is to look for styles with an unusual color or print. Of course statement boots are next in trends to follow, and looks will range from playful , irreverent, and gaudy. Anything goes, as long as it makes people's heads turn. Remember in the 80's when people took family photos in matching track suits? Well... theyre back! Track suits have returned and that is because of the huge athliesure trends. Millennial pink still drifts into Fall but in a solid 1 piece jumpsuit. It could also do with the recent utilitarian work ware trend as well. "Twinning", is an actual hashtag that has taken over Instagram as of late. From matching t-shirts and keychains to show the world who your BFF is. Lastly, there will be a disregard in seasonal palette norms. Bright shades of green, orange, red, and blue thrown in a clashing combination. Looking forward to all these quirky trends to come in the Fall.
Fall is here! So that means layers, chai tea, booties, beanies, and emojis?! That wasn't expected, and there are some other wacky trends that are headed your way and will make you question what will be seen in stores and on others. Yes it's true, emojis will be trending and that is because these days we are using emojis more than words. From The Emoji Movie collaborating with ASOS, and to embellished and embroidered accessories filled with emoji icons. Since bomber jackets have seen a decline in sales and trends, designers have came up with a replacement- bonker denim jackets. Denim jackets will be seen in an array of crazy styles, from extra long sleeves, cold-shouldered, or fur trimmed.
There are also Off-White and Gucci grosgrain ribbons that can be made custom to order. Whoever is making these counterfeit goods is obviously keeping an eye out on Instagram fashion hashtags and street style reports. But this country is unique in a sense that its younger generation is obsessed with fashion trends, street culture, and global trends because it defines your status. It seems as if a lot of these young Koreans really aren't aware of what they are wearing , whether if it is fake or not. Because of this huge surge in street wear, South Korea's market continues to grow- in 2012 South Korea confiscated 57,0005 counterfeit goods. The International Chamber of Commerce and International Trademark Association that the global economic value of counterfeiting and piracy could reach $2.3 trillion by 2022 with China and South Korea being the biggest producers of counterfeit goods.
Seoul is known for being a leader as a global fashion destination, but also known for its counterfeit goods. South Korea is one of the world's largest economy, 14th in the world. So why do they partake in the counterfeit culture? There are a couple of reasons why- the first is that the streetwear goods are hard to access and purchase in South Korea. Fake Supreme hoodies can be found on the sidewalk for $25, just outside a Fashion Week convention. There are also huge shopping malls in the area that carries an exact replica of an embriodered Saint Laurent jacket that was worn by Justin Beiber. The only way you can tell the difference between fake and real is that the fake reads, "Classic Fashion".
A fun Budapest apartment designed and styled with primary colors, as its' main source of inspiration.
Boasting spectacular views of the Parliament building, this attic apartment in the heart of Budapest was renovated by Margeza Design Studio. The two bedroom unit spans 110 square meters (approx. 1,184 square feet) over two floors in a building that dates back to 1928 and is finished off with the studio’s signature minimalist aesthetic. White surfaces and polished white floors, paired with large windows, keep the space filled with light. A curated collection of colorful furniture and furnishings are displayed throughout for a vibrant and playful feel. Yellow armchairs from the 1980s rest alongside a custom white rug that’s a map of Budapest with the Danube river displayed in blue. The living room benefits from a living green wall, adding a bit of nature to the mostly white interior. It’s even hooked up to an automatic irrigation system so little-to-no maintenance. The custom designed Corian stairs house tons of storage for kitchen appliances, including the microwave, wine cooler, and washing machine.
