Fashion is cyclical, it’s a fact. There are hardly ever completely brand-new trends that surface in this exclusive world of high-powered designers. So it’s no surprise that with the dawn of a new decade, fashion trends from previous years have come back into vogue. Though we spent years ridiculing the dress-over-jeans look that frequented the red carpet during the 2000s, these early years are making a big comeback. However, as the years progress, so does our society and the ways in which trends spread.

From Fit Pics to Fashion Week, Personal Style Is Better Than Any Trend

If the fall 2021 shows prove anything, it’s that emotion and poetry are back. At Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, a designer who popularized total-look style with his stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé in the aughts and teens, pivoted to a more melange look, coupling tulle skirts with hoodies, crystal embroideries with leather jackets, and poet tops with mannish blazers. Over at Ghesquière’s alma mater Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia continues to reflect true street style back at his customers, playing up strange, sometimes surreal, pairings like medieval armor with jeans and sweatpants.

Marine Serre’s upcycled tartans look more like the way real people might clash plaids than the refined Prince of Wales checks popular in the early 2010s. Collina Strada styled its collection in the vein of its designer, Hillary Taymour, while Ibrahim Kamara, arguably

British Style Bibles Are Rewriting the Fashion Media Rulebook | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

Ibrahim Kamara’s new job presents a unique challenge. The stylist, known for his experimental take on high fashion, has been charged with keeping indie fashion bible Dazed relevant in an increasingly digitised and fast-changing cultural landscape.

Kamara, who was born in Sierra Leone, raised in The Gambia and lives in London, is in part representative of this change. His work weaves together a plethora of styles to explore the nuances at the intersection of Blackness, sexuality and gender.

His approach is “about bringing new people into the conversation that haven’t been given opportunities before, bringing in different lenses and being more daring, being able to dream, being able to not look at London, New York and and LA as just the centres of culture,” said Kamara.
