Vetements is changing the fashion industry and this time were not only the clothes that got us talking, the cast of models were what impress us the most. All different colors, ages and sizes.
At first glance, this show looks like some regular people in regular clothes, but each one of them were representing a stereotype, we had the punk, the gypsy, the secretary and the list goes on and one. Thirty-five looks, thirty-five stereotypes.
The invitation for the show? Well, attendees at the Centre Pompidou were given ID cards with seating information. But what all this stands for? We all know that clothes can define our image and this is also the closest Vetements has gotten to its mission of being about normal clothing (the name in French translates to just “clothes”). Was this an ode to normal people? A way to get us thinking how makes us humans and what makes us all different? By questioning all of us, Vetements also show us that we people can be the real starts of the runway. In fact, the runway belong to each one of us and true fashion is what people wear on the streets.
