What is fashion and how do you recognize real elegance and beauty? These are two of the hardest questions to answer because there's always another truth, another point of view, something that proves you wrong. Even two of the greatest women in the history of fashion tried and failed to give an always valid answer. First Coco Chanel said that "Simplicity is the keynote to all true elegance." Years later Anna Wintour proclaimed that "Fashion is never about looking back, it's always about looking forward." Both sound very true and logical, but look at the baroque trend this season. There's nothing simple or futuristic about it. Inspired by the royal opulence of the past designers are taking us to an exquisite, beautiful and very elegant world of elaborate details and fairy tale garments. Sometimes fashion is about looking back and elegance is complex, lavish and abundant. Fashion is never what you expect it to be but it is always breathtaking.

Какво е модата и как да разпознаем истинската елегантност и красота? Това са два от най-трудните въпроси, защото какъвто и отговор да дадеш винаги има още една истина, още една гледна точка, нещо, което да те опровергае. Дори две от великите жени в историята на модата се провалиха в опита си да дадат отговор, който винаги да е валиден. Първо Коко Шанел каза, че "Простотата е основният принцип на истинската елегантност." Години по-късно Анна Уинтър от своя страна каза, че "Модата никога не гледа назад, винаги гледа напред." И двете твърдения звучат напълно логично, но погледнете бароковата тенденция тази есен. В нея няма нищо просто или футуристично. Вдъхновени от кралския разкош на миналото, дизайнерите ни пренасят във великолепен, красив и изключително елегантен свят на претенциозни детайли и приказни дрехи. Понякога модата гледа назад, понякога елегантността е сложна, разточителна и изобилна. Модата никога не е това, което очакваме да бъде, но винаги успява да спре дъха ни.
