Stripes and plaid now share the same timeless pedestal. Only today, the colours it takes on are far more daring and unmuted, and thankfully, less reminiscent of school uniforms.
Sequins against mesh. Curiously, more cohesive in execution than in theory. Perhaps because they operate under the same cluster paradigm. The sequins sparkle with the mesh as a subtle backdrop.
Even the cutouts hint at modern origins.
So this is the fashion of my time. Now, I'll be able to appreciate it in full.
