Neo-Mint: The “It” Color for 2020?

2020 Color Trend Alert!

Y-3 Adizero Runner 2019

Ahh, so sweet to find a trend alert treat as easy as today. I was checking out the Y-3 site today (5/10/19) and they had a few pairs of kicks that had this cool light green color sprinkled in the shoes. See above for example.  I’m thinking that looks like a nice color for Summer. Then within a few clicks I find this color mentioned on a blog and that WGSN calls it the color of 2020.

WGSN (Fashion Trend website) is typically pretty guarded with their color trends and want you to subscribe for a fee to access the good information.  Thus, it can be somewhat of a challenge to find the Hip colors ahead of time. Well today, we have it! Neo-Mint!

*I almost bought a 2020 booklet in NY that let us know the upcoming trends, but it was $240! (And it was wrapped in plastic, so not sure what it had to say in it).

WGSN Color Director Jane Monnington Boddy let’s us know:

We have clients ranging from active-wear giants through to car companies and some of the world’s leading retailers. What is becoming clear is the importance of Neo Mint – a shade that succinctly aligns futuristic development with nature

Right now, I’m finishing up some flared Gold Metallic pants. Next up, a quad colored Mickey Mouse children’s dress.  After that, I’m going straight into something with some Neo-Mint in it.  I’m thinking black pants with some very subtle hues of the color. Or maybe, I’ll get adventurous and make a shirt/jacket.  That might be the ticket.

WGSN also mentions:

From a fashion perspective, Neo mint embodies the drive towards tones that have gender-neutral appeal, which by 2020 will have moved on from the more feminine hues.

What do you think of Neo-Mint?  Do you have any advanced notice of Hot Colors for 2020?

Let us know in the comments section or you can email me.

And just in time for the NEO Mint craze. What color do you think these shoes are? I see Grey and Teal/NEO Mint. Others see Pink and White. Similar to the Gold and White Dress game from a view years back, eh?

What Color is the Van? #Streetzblog

Grey and Teal or Pink and White?

BEE gets Fashionable

SAINT LAURENT taps Bret Easton Ellis for Short Film

Brett Easton Ellis of American Psycho fame put together this short three minute film featuring clothing from Saint Laurent. He catches the SL vibe with the super skinny actors/models-Hopper Penn (Son of Sean Penn, Tes Linnenkoper and Dakota Linvall)

The BEE directed piece entitled The Arrangement takes us through a quick Love Triangle, along the way we guess who will end up with whom. Looks like part 2 could be fun!

The clothing is pretty subtle yet noticeably (Y) SL, the ultra skinny dark rock star jeans, bold silver on black leather belts, leopard prints, & and smooth leather jackets

The soundtrack assists with the vibe of the movie with Petula Clark’s Windmills of Your Mind

The short film comes out in April 2019, almost the same time that Brett is releasing his first Non Fictional book.  *Note:  I’ve read all of Brett’s books, but don’t have much desire to read a non fiction book by him. Would be fun to see his character Patrick Bateman in a new book about how he’s dealing with being 55 years old in New York City in the year 2020. That’s big time hopeful wishing, double doubt we will ever here from BEE on Jason again.

And where is Yves now that its just Saint Laurent?

Enjoy the clip and have a nice rest of your day!

The AHOLA Shirt F/W 2018-19

The Newest Streetzblog Creation

The AHOLA Shirt-Pro Bowl Edition F/W 2018-19

I needed a slight break in the action of Non Stop creations from Scratch. So, took an old plaid shirt from Target and a pretty new Pro Bowl Aloha shirt, combined the 2 and created the AHOLA Shirt. Over time it will Morph & Fray, which will give it even more Flavor. This side project took about 15 hours to complete. 3/7/18

The AHOLA shirt -Streetzblog

For some reason, I thought this would take a couple of hours to complete. But it’s a bit more intricate.  Here’s the process:

  1. Draw shapes on the front with Pink or Light Blue Pencil
  2. Cut out the Aloha print fabric to fit, pin on front if you have time.  You can skip pinning on the front, but I like to do it, to see how it will look
  3. Then take each piece off the front and carefully pin to the inside.  This is actually the most important step. You need to pin each piece in place with many pins.  If you’re lazy on this step, you will end up with an ugly pinched up shirt.  Take your time and pin each piece precisely
  4. Sew each piece on the inside of the shirt.  Do the Back First, then the front then the sleeves
  5. The Reveal!  This is my favorite part. Be very careful, pinch fabric on the front and make a very small hole. Then take some really sharp small scissors and cut the shapes out
  6. Pro Tip:  On the Sleeves, I carefully cut out slits. THEN sew lines thorugh the area, so that it will only fray in certain areas.  This is also fun to do. And will give your creation some expensive looking frays as it morphs through each wash and wear.
  7. Press Shirt and Wear it on Aloha Friday

Exuding Elegance in Le Cite De La Mode

Yohji Yamamoto Fall/Winter 2018-19

Paris Fashion Week:  March 2, 2018

One of my goals is to make it to NY Fashion week. After seeing the Paris shows in Feb/Mar 2018, I’m thinking a better goal is to make it to Paris Fashion week. This show is from the Paris portion of the Feb/Mar Quad Fashion Foray.  New York, London, Milan & Paris. And it is Exquisite. Yes, Paris is the goal! Or as YY calls it on the IG post: the Cite de la Mode

Only doing Highlights today.  The show doesn’t really have any low-lights other than the color brown…LOL   I’ll stick with the 2018 easy to read, super-quick attention span style of writing with the fun fonts, colors, bolding etc.

Highlights:

Flowing, Graceful, & Peaceful 

Color Palette:  Black, Dark Grey, A Bit of White and some Brown

A bit of Bowie influence on the Make-Up side of things. Rectangles over one eye

Asymmetric, Bulky-Fluidity, Moving like a slowed down silent movie

Amazing hairdo’s

Classic, Yet a la mode, On-trend, Traditional YY

Comfy Kicks in Highs and Lows-Extra Nice Boots, Cool Tennies in Black and White

Did I say lots and lots of the color Black! YAH!!

Check out the crowd, it’s like they’re frozen in time, in a trance like state! I don’t think I saw a single person move the whole show. Amazing.  And by the looks of the crowd, seems like they took their iPhones from them before the show?  Maybe?

What do you think of the show? This season’s Runway shows?  See you on the Streetz!
