Simon Doonan Declares The End Of Trends

Barneys Creative Director Simon Doonan has declared...wait for it...the end of trends! In a post for The Observer, Doonan writes, "Fashion is no longer icy and aloof. Fashion is a massive, forgiving, ambiguous melting pot where people and trends can dig in their Lee Press-On nails and hang on for years and years without ever being out." He offers some concrete examples, like:

1. Uggs. Style pundits may have broadcast their out-ness for years, but last week's snowy streets were packed with Uggs-sporting fashion plates.


3. Skinny jeans. Despite their supposed out-ness, they have managed to become a fashion staple, especially when tucked into riding boots. Tally ho!


5. Military style. It was in 18 months ago, and now it's allegedly in all over again. Was it ever really out?

Could we be experiencing a fashion apocalypse where in is out and out is in and everything in-between are acceptable forms of dress? Stay tuned...
