I Spy With My Big Red Eye

I spy with my big red eye.

I'm not going to lie: I'm a trend follower. But wait–why should I feel ashamed for liking trends?! Yes, following trends just to be accepted by society can be really silly. However, if you feel that you genuinely like a trend, why pretend that you aren't interested in it? Originality isn't about staying the same. In order to find your style, you have to go through a lot of phases and trends by picking up the ones you like and leaving behind the ones you don't. Your style is essentially what you've curated over the years after trying out different things.

In this case, I love red, and I'm glad that it has become a hot color (lol) in the fashion world which means more red options for me! I'm pretty much obsessed with anything that is red. The Y2K trend is also continuing to grow, and while I initially disliked this comeback, I am starting to embrace the fun behind it (those tiny sunglasses though?!). It's so ugly that it's kind of cute... I recently finished Gilmore Girls which ran from 2000 to 2007 which might have helped me warm up to the trend. Am I the only one that isn't into the Gilmore Girls revival?

Kenzo Featured An All-Asian Cast For Its S/S 2018 RTW Show

Recently, Kenzo featured an all-Asian cast for its S/S 2018 RTW show which I find interesting simply because of the lack of Asian models found in the fashion industry. The show featured not only Japanese models but Korean and Chinese models as well. According to Kenzo's instagram, the designers kept muses Sayoko Yamaguchi and Ryuichi Sakamoto in mind as they were designing this collection. Sayoko Yamaguchi was Kenz┼Ź Takada's original muse while Ryuichi Sakamoto is the house's modern inspiration. According to another post, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim "felt like it would be really beautiful and poetic to cast a full Asian cast and celebrate the heritage of the brand." I, too, think it is beautiful.
