The current narrative of my research is about rave culture. This is for you my PLUR livin’, Kandi Kids! This week is focused on Marc by Marc Jacobs SS15. Snippets below.
What liberated in Marc by Marc Jacob’s Spring 2015 collection was an idealism of youth, an escapist principle that transcends when it comes to rave culture.
The rave culture is the most unique when it comes to catalyzing fashion. Unlike other musical-influenced subcultures that go hand-in-hand with people’s style, rave is a culture that has an indefinable identity. It is about sensory experiences, and the culture is reflective of this — fashion/style, parties, music, drugs, etc.
Of a culture that has been seen as indefinable by style, constantly transforming its look decade by decade, are there garments and even price-points to be considered more authentic? When it’s all about PLUR, is rave culture foremost about the sensory experiences and BPM, making fashion irrelevant to its expression? (at ## streetbasics.tumblr.com ##)
