I don't mean to be all old media here but do you think stuff like Everlane or that denim brand that blew past its kickstarter goal are sustainable? They seem to me more symptomatic of the retail moment than retail future. Plus, those sorts of brands that sell basics are pretty universal in their appeal (upgrade your current X to a slightly better X)--anyone doing design that doesn't already have a built in customer base would have a harder time selling things.
but then the best designers will start being bought by LVMH and the other majors and indie clothing will blow up and become corporate, defeating the whole purpose of the scene that started it, causing the whole thing to collapse in on itself and leaving the fashion equivalent of boy bands and britney spears in its wake
Taylor Swift has become one of the few pop musicians whose public persona has made it difficult for me to enjoy her music. That, and a lot of her lyrics are trite even when trying to clear the modern pop music bar.
I'm not gonna lie and I'm not even ashamed to say that I love Taylor Swift. Her music is great if you're into the occasional nostalgic middle school feeling. Also whenever she is on degeneres it is fucking hilarious Edited by g transistor - 2/27/13 at 3:19pm
