Fashion is a living breathing thing. It grows and learns. It experiences and looks back, improves its self and absorbs from its past to perfect its future and adapt to the present. Things might be repeated, but they are also modernized, "improved" to fit the now.
While walking down Michigan ave yesterday I came across a jacket from the Versace for H&M collection. It rivaled the Alexander Wang jacket vest I found at Barney’s but didn’t carry the same finesse or clean cut look. One had leather sleeves and was relatively cheaper, the other was sleeveless but the looked and fit perfect with an immaculate finish.
So at the end of the day it’s between the Alexander Wang vest ($695) and this Versace influenced jacket for H&M ($299). I think I’ll just wait for the Barney’s sale.
