Throw Back Thursday Trend:
By Nefertiti Moore; Fashion Stylist, NYC.
If you are a fan of fashion, like me, you recently saw the Alexander Wang collection for H&M. I was excited he was going to do something for this chain. I loved his Spring 2015 show and I think his work for Balenciaga is wonderful. This H&M collection is so fun.
I saw the ads and lookbook for the Alexander Wang collection and my brain screamed HEALTH GOTH! As I read and saw the ads for Alexander Wang’s H&M Collection all I could see was the retro shapes of the late 80s early 90s. Let’s face it the 90s are back with a vengeance! From Iggy Azalea to Rihanna it’s apparent.
The new Alexander Wang H&M collection reminds me of Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation era with the black on black.
It felt to me that Wang was channeling Janet’s look and embracing the Health Goth trend. Why not? Everyone else is. Beyonce’s Halloween costume was Rhythm Nation JJ and apparently Rihanna is one of the lucky people that were able to get some of the coveted collection.
If you don’t believe me Google the hash tag #healthgoth, you will not be disappointed. Here are a couple of photos of my friend Bianca Alexis and her signature #healthgoth looks.
I immediately started looking to the streets for hints of these trends. I found a bevy of people were already on this Black is the new Black thing. I was so excited I had to ask them to take photos of their outfits.
