The name says it all - don't think classic but edgier, modern, and non-traditional match ups. “New Wave” means you should be ready and comfortable pushing the fashion envelope a bit, and those in more traditional positions or companies or more formal work environments would do well to admire from a distance.
What I love and hate about this trend:
- (+) It's a chance to push the envelope from what we know
- (+) There's lots of leather!
- (-) Can't be fully embraced by most folks given their everyday work
- (-) It requires a full closet redux to do properly
Designers/brands you'll see run with this trend are likely Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Dannijo, and Isabel Marant Etoile.
