I appreciate fashion for the craftsmanship- something that is entirely missing within fast fashion and exists only in what seems these days, like a few luxury pieces. It appears as though the concept of fashion as 'wearable art' is on the decline.

With the commercialisation of everything and the fact that at the end of the day, clothes need to sell and money needs to be made, designers take less creative risks and operate in a more calculated way so that they can appeal to the wider market. At the end of the day, designers need their clothes to be selected by buyers for the various international department stores and boutiques, and buyers in turn need to hit sales targets and select items that are most likely to fly off the shelves. As a result of that, idiosyncrasy, quirkiness and eccentricity is rarely the priority in design. It's unfortunate that at the end of the day, money keeps the lights on and the staff employed; and there's no escaping that.

This makes me appreciate designers like Dice Kayek and unique pieces like this jacket even more. Talk about jacket #goals.

    Exactly ! . The fashion industry has become really commercial that it’s really now focused on ‘what will sell’. If only the creatives behind the brands knew that we the customers like a slight quirk (or more) with our clothing & accessories and that we find the mainstream offerings a bit boring and often repetitive.
