High Fashion Magicness right??
There is a direct correlation between those styles and the styles some of our younger generation wears as street style:
Baggy Pants, Wife Beaters, Members Only style jackets, grunge type shorts.
JG has just brought these looks together and added his genius, now I know you have to be on a different
wavelength to flow with Mr. Galliano, I guess I am there cause I get it!
Loves John Galliano he is always all over the place in the right ways.

The flare leg and bell bottom jean are timeless looks that will never go out of style. The carefree dresses and patterns are also very popular and have changed and gained in popularity. We still see colorful fabric and beautiful embellishments in our clothing today.
There is even a “haute hippie” movement that brings more modern coolness to the hippie aesthetic.
Yves Saint Laurent’s style was very unique and had amazing style. He created masterpieces from fabric, his pop art and Van Gogh designs were like nothing anyone had ever seen. Le Smoking was the most awesome take on an androgynous suit. Simply fantastic.
His collections were misunderstood at times with tradionalists not understanding the collections and younger people thinking he was ripping off kid’s street gear, they also complained about how expensive his clothing was. I really think when it comes to influential style, street style is an obtainable part of fashion everyone can relate to in their own way.

The POWER SUIT!!
Initially women began wearing suits to show independance and to show individual style. Over time the power suit has meant different things to different women, in the 80's however the suit itself began to make a strong statement of empowerment and confidence for women in the workforce. "The power suit is akin to armor, outfitting a woman to do battle in a predominantly male world." Women still like sharp shoulders and a body fitting silhouette. Not TOO Racy and tight fitting, but just enough to show the form of the figure. 1940 - National Coat and Suit Industry
1950 - Christian Dior
1960 - Victoria and Albert Museum (No Designer Listed)
1970 - Yves Saint Laurent
1980 - Anne Klein
I can truly say I love the idea of a skirt suit, it makes a women feel feminine yet pwerful. The powersuit is a staple of the business women's wardrobe. It has changed some, however it is still has the same respect commanding affect.
