At the same time, the fashion world looked on with awe and confusion as Hedi Slimane showed his first collection for Celine. Celine, previously a fashion house celebrated for creating clothing that women felt powerful, put together and sexy in — and by their own terms — became just the opposite, as barely-there pieces dripping in sequins strutted down the runway to almost universally bad reviews.
Today, from local boutiques to big department stores, women’s sections boast oversized blazers, wide-leg pants, high neck shirts, and increased diversity in shapes, gender representation, and race. Women’s fashion was once defined for us as sleek and skimpy, but today we get to decide for ourselves how we want to look and feel. So, don’t be surprised when the women in your life start dressing like David Byrne.
