"A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste—it's hearty, it's healthy, it's physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I'm against."
T hat said the unforgotten American fashion journalist Diana Vreeland, who knew how to set herself apart from all the other women of (media) society with her stylish, extravagant wardrobe. A motto that probably inspired a number of designers for their collections in the current autumn/winter season.
Whether in Milan, New York, Paris or London: bright colours, opulent fabrics and daring material combinations dominated the looks down to the smallest detail. Much is now being combined that was previously considered a faux pas. Glitter trimmings with endless layers of tulle, brightly colored fur with animal prints, checks and stripes. What works easily on the catwalk, especially on 12-centimetre heels, quickly exceeds the fashionable pain threshold in real life. Not everyone suits the granny look or flashy pink.
