Snap, Crackle, Pop!

It’s been busy around here as we start to kick the Cruise 2015 wheels into motion, so pardon us if we’ve fallen behind with the Fall/Winter 2014 runways. As we play catch-up, certain trends really *pop* out at us. First, there’s your “classic” pop art: bright color blocking, dizzying graphics, Lichtenstein-esque comic book caricature. Dries van Noten just showed in Paris today and is a favorite for sure. On the (sort of) other end of the spectrum, you get low culture kitsch at its finest: advertising, typography, and cartoons. Marc by Marc Jacobs’ motocross, Rodarte’s Star Wars printed dresses, and Moschino’s candy wrapper couture—not the most beautiful clothes in the world, but Andy Warhol would be proud.
