The great Oscar Wilde once said that “fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” How about every second? That would be even better, no?
Someone made a video that accomplishes just that, showing all (or many) of the styles the fashionable people of East London have worn for the past century, all in the blink of an eye. Plus, there is dancing. We’re having a movement-filled day today, aren’t we?
I have to cringe a little when they get to the nineties, because a lot of those styles weren’t great the first time around, and now they’re back in a big way. That said, I see almost all of these eras of dress on the street each time I walk around New York City. Have we reached the End of History? What horrid trend will they think of next to keep things moving along? OH GOD, WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
