    Fashion is simply a form of expression. It's not always meant for everyday wear (such as this piece, for example).

    Let it hang! icon_razz.gif

    lol. Well, there is avant garde and then there is ugly and ridiculous. This, would qualify as ugly and ridiculous. Those things are not particularly fashionable....

    Cool avant garde-ish fashion:

    more like Hot guys.. period.

    on that pic one is looking hard for "fashion" .
    every item seems very classic, traditional.
    i'm a great fan od D&G , just that this pic doesn't really show how their stuff is different. But they know how to get sexy guys. icon_smile.gif

    the guy at the top is just hilarious. i wonder if they have circumcised models.

    (edit: i was talking about the 2nd post above )

    This thread is a hotmess in terms of delineating the boundaries of fashion. Let's clear some things up.

    That season of Gucci isn't avant garde. It's pret a porter (ready to wear). Gucci doesn't have couture.

    Avant garde, however, doesn't always mean couture. Avant garde falls under the principles of contemporary academic art. It's purpose is to place a concept, not to adhere to aesthetics or be "pretty" (material is a language, not a tool of prettiness). Just as a refresher Beautiful does NOT mean Pretty.

    Couture has definite aspects of avant garde, however it is ruled by exeptionally superior standards of craft, which avant garde by definition stays away from. The emphasis on craft in contemporary academic art negates the conceptual basis. In couture the core concepts and inspirations are actually quite basic, but the execution is what makes couture, couture.

    @fizzle:

    I LOVE that Prada Campaign..... w/ Sasha Pivovaeova...

    @ciarsolo... The first set of pics is actually McQueen. Its not very avant gard, actually, but its an example of interesting fashion that can be quite pretty.

    Here's real avant gard....

    I just noticed the guy isn't wearing a belt either. It's that a fashion no-no?

    Ok, first the shot you used is from Madrid Fashion Week which is pretty much meaningless. If it were from Paris, Milan, NYC or even perhaps London it may be of some relevance.

    Second, McQueen did do couture collections while at Givenchy. If you would like to see them I am sure you can google Givenchy Couture spring 97 and something will come up for you.

    Couture vs. Avant Garde... most couture that is sold is actually very tame style wise. It is mostly suits, cocktail dresses and eveningwear. These clothes are mainly made by hand (no sewing machines). Couture is about quality... Avant Garde is about a style.

    Couture existed long before Karl and will last long after him. He is a genius, but his death will not mark the death of couture.

    If you remove the crazy hats, some of the clothes aren't bad at all. The penis pants might be good for Halloween...It's probably more of a social commentary. Considering all the threads that mention a guy's bulge, this designer just decided to bring the topic into the open. Ultimately, the clothes she's wearing at the end have character and look pretty normal.

    and probably, like the music world, lots of stuff in the avant garde makes it over into the mainstream because we all benefit from the risks taken by the avant garde artist. quality "commercial" music, i.e., accessible to most people (the equivalent of couture), is relatively safe with just a few edges on it. obviously, some commercial music is pablum, but there is some that is accessible yet challenging (film music has lots of this). but most of the edginess of this kind of music comes from things the avant garde artist has tried before.

    i heard a composer talk about art and i agree with him: 80% of all art is schlock, about 20% is quality stuff.

    i'm guessing this is no different in the clothing world: some efforts will never live to see the light of day, some will but shouldn't, and some won't that should. at least in the avant garde it is more about the risk than about the success.

    I actually really like it...of course no one wears that kind of stuff, BUT, it is artistic expressionism which you see so much in paintings and movies - why not in fashion, you know? It's cool and different.
