SS14 Top Trends – Shawna Simpson
The pop movement challenged the traditions of art in the 1950s and is now emerging into the fashion world stronger than ever. Though the trend appears too eccentric for the typical young professional’s everyday attire, it is most favorably worn when worked with classic tailoring and traditional pieces.
Christian Dior stamped slogans like “hyperrealness in the daytime” and “primrose path” across his dresses.
More conservative brands such as Celine and Alice + Olivia incorporated the pop art trend by bringing in bright-coloured palettes.
Prada’s Diego Rivera-inspired Spring collection caused a huge excitement on this seasons runway that both Vogue fashion editors, Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo, were already seen wearing these coats.
Since pop art refers more to the attitudes that led the concept than the art itself, many celebrities and fashion leaders have taken to this trend too.
