The avant-garde style is pure art, made to be worn on a human body. More than any other style, it produces innovative, futuristic and experiential clothes, styling and expression.
Unfortunately, with few exceptions these garments are hardly ever seen off the catwalk. But we at Fly the Fly Vintage hope and wish that soon we will see avant-garde fashion even in our grey streets: men and women walking around like pieces of art, with moulded, twisted, pleated, layered, fanciful shapes made out of beautiful fabrics and sometimes materials never intended to be worn. Pieces that radiate cool sensuality, structured playfulness, hip self-confidence, and a myriad of other things.
There are several major fashion designers who create unconventional designs. To mention but two of them, Issey Miyake and the late Alexander McQueen both has showed the world spectacular fashion pieces.
Alas, for most people, these clothes will be far too impractical for everyday wear, and for some too extreme even for evening occasions. Many avant-garde clothes are also very expensive, as they are one-off designs with just a very few copies produced. In addition, the incredibly detailed, unusual work can only be carried out by highly skilled craftspeople, often uses very pricy quality fabrics, and is often created by high fashion designers.
But today we thought we demonstrate how you can create a simpler, slightly toned-down vintage avant-garde style with cool, imaginative shapes and colours, for less than €200.
