Right on time, fashion is trending uber-extreme. Torturous in fact. John Galliano’s Men’s collection 08 is a stunning example. It’s part of what occurs when the tastes of the masses grow more inclined toward good design. It forces the avant-garde to seek the extremes. RenGen culture scouts Mary Kay Baumann and Will Hopkins spotted this trend in 2005 and talked about it in their legendary “Visual Trends” class they teach at Stanford. They believe that visual appetites are forking off in two directions: authentic and extreme.
