Palazzo Story

I think that today's fashion is going into very wrong direction. Creativity is exhausted, and new trends are deprived of any sense of style. 

I would say that trends in the fashion industry are pretty much aligned with the direction in which today's society is going - following wrong values and lack of the appreciation for the things that matter. In other words, consolidation of the consumer society where big systems are directing our behavior. Where everybody likes the same things - at least they are convinced that they like them. Or, they have to like them, in order to feel accepted and as a part of the community. Individualism became such a rare and weird thing. 

To me, there is more than just a trends, when it comes to fashion. In general, trends are good - they are directing society to the more forward state of mind. But also, trends represent very powerful weapon for destroying individuality, through a faux sense of belonging, and a great method for controlling masses. And fashion (or better said, personal style) is one of the most powerful ways for expressing the one's individuality. So how can 8 out of the 10 girls wear over-the-knee boots in the very same version: fishnet tights and short dress/skirt? Or Levi's T-shirt, right after seeing zillion others wearing the same damn thing? And there are so many other ways for playing and expressing yourself through it.

All of the pieces from this combination look so different and unmatchable when observed separately, but very interesting when put together. When I was choosing this combination, I started from the pants - and then randomly choosing the pieces that would just click and not get me into overthinking mode. And this is what I mostly love about fashion. It is like an art. Through fashion, you can ether create the copy which would look cheep, no matter how much money you've invested in it. Or you could create the master piece, which maybe not everyone would like, but it will leave the impression and express your individuality. And individuals are those who change the world.
