New York's Fashion Week FW18 Moodboard

The inspirations directly from the catwalks

New York's Fashion Week FW18 Moodboard The inspirations directly from the catwalks

One after the other the weeks dedicated to menswear have followed, dragging behind the circus of editors, buyers, curious, celebrities, models and more or less unforgettable clothes.

London, Milan, Paris and finally New York.

And it is precisely here that hype and coolness have collapsed miserably.

It took three days of fashion shows to raise one big question: why?

Does it really make sense to extend fashion week if designers and ideas are absent?

Maybe from an economic point of view, from that of buyers and models that have to work, from that of bloggers and it people who have to take new photos for their Instagram profiles and show off unlikely outfits that all the other poor people (those who have no access to the fashion system or pretend to have) look with a mixture of admiration and bewilderment.

Take a look also at the New York shows, the creations and ideas that inspired the designers, mostly minor, and find the right answer for you to this question: why?
