ICYMI, fashion these days is an excessive celebration of the low-brow. The industry was ruled by bad taste in 2017, and it doesn't look like 2018 will be any different. In fact, it's looking like the celebration of all things trashy will only intensify: one curious new trend to emerge on the runways at Paris Fashion Week was a revival of tribal print.
Once the absolute lowest of the low, banished to the depths of bad tattoo parlors and great metal guitarists, recent shows from Vetements and Dior Homme seem to signal a resurgence of tribal patterns. One of Dior's models even had tribal shaved into his head.
Now, the latest brand to jump on the tribal trend is Sankuanz. The Chinese label put a bevy of tribal-infused looks on the runway at Paris, turning the cyber-goth levels up to 11 thanks to retina-searing colorways and sporty fabrics.
Elsewhere, the brand chucked bright metallics and stiff, IKEA-esque fabrics into the mix — befitting for a brand that's used its shows to pay tribute to B-movies and out-do Demna Gvasalia in the ridiculous bag stakes.
