In The Army Now

I think it was around the time when Uncle Sam and the “I want you for US Army” poster became a culture symbol rather than a military call that this “military” stuff was perceived fashionable. Thanks though, to whoever had done it first; for enabling us to still be in style when we are dipped in the sweet blend of mud and water.


We have to mention Kate the Great here, for once again throwing the world a curveball and showing how an old parka can complete an entire outfit. Since then, we have been combining everything with our “hey I’m such a socialist” parkas. (The irony about this proposition hits me everytime.)

We can not talk about this trend as if its new; or one that has revived after one or two decades (ie shoulder pads, disco age etc). But what we have to admit that this season camouflage print, khaki and navy colors, gold buttons and patchworks have surrounded us with the order of Altuzarra, Max Mara, Isabel Marant, Jason Wu, Victoria Beckham, Topshop Unique and such. I surrender.
