Fashion a reaction on society?

It is often said. Fashion is a reaction to what is going on in society. The Flemish political scientist Helmut Gaus underlined in 1992 the relationship between an economic crisis and fashion in his study People and Fashion.

Maximal-ism thrives since 2010, when the world began to recover from the most serious economic crisis since The great Recession. The past fashion month however, displayed a tendency towards minimalism. This trend was first noticed during the European Men’s Fashion Week in January. Designers chose darker, more muted colors for their garments. Designers like Alyx and Ermenegildo Zegna emphasized neutral colors and their collections were more subdued than in their previous collections. [read more in this fashionunited.com article]

Gimo’s

Gimo’s is a composition of the founding fathers’ last names: Renzo Girardin en Antonio Moschino. These men decided mid 1960s – when leather jackets represented freedom, to produce leather jackets themselves. Soon the brand grew to become an international manufacturer of coats in more (high quality) fabrics than only leather. Today Renzo’s children Sabrina and Massimo hold the fort. “We are not a total-look label. This results in the fact that we can focus on just the production of coats and leather coats in particular.”
