If you take a look at my playlist, chances are you’ll laugh at me. In the middle of rap and indie, which are the main part of my Spotify library, you will find some guilty pleasures that I prefer to keep quiet for the sake of my reputation. The kind I would take with me to the grave, forever sealed in the ground — no, not Cher, please….
However, in the past few months, I have opened my horizons to other styles. Under the influence of my friends from the Supercherie crew, who have made it a habit to drag me to a whole bunch of parties where the address is only revealed two hours in advance, I started to listen to music where no one sings. What am I most proud of? I learned how to write Gesaffelstein.
Anyway, it seems that I’m not the only one who’s recently been touched by the techno mania. In recent seasons, designers have increasingly focused on the aesthetics of vacant lots and their clandestine festivities…. So, what legacy has rave culture left to fashion? How does it translate? To what does it owe its presence on the catwalks? Which pieces should you adopt to dance in style — or borrow the style of the dancers? What do our clothes say about us in the middle of a warehouse?
