I'm not going to go to the obvious points here about the avant garde, or the gender free movement. I've written enough on those subjects of late. Besides, the images included here are self evidently those things. What I want to talk about here is the concept of lyricism. Though its true that for the majority of the words in the apparel dictionary, a lyric quality is absent, there are times when, through the clever use of individual garments, or because of the nature of those garments themselves, that what is communicated takes on an artful, poetic, and nearly musical aspect.
If we are to move ourselves forward with some grace into this global world we are about building, conveying our thoughts and feeling with more eloquence can only be an aid. I've written before that I feel that Attire, as a semiotic communication form could play a much larger role in that transition than it does currently.
