Today, years into a recession where cuts are being made left and right, where our rights as students, working mothers and near-retiring workers are close to being infringed on, it is harder to see the correlation between fashion and life. Hindsight is a friend in this matter and it will not be long before we can ascertain the influence the economic crisis has had on the worlds' artists.
This month's issue of Dazed and Confused engages with this topic, displaying a provoking cover that will stand out between glossy models and celebrities on Vogue, W, Elle and it's counterparts. While I have not yet been able to get my hands on the magazine, I'm excited to see what the team have produced. Whether it's an insightful look into our ongoing financial hardships and "age of austerity" or a superficial theme remains to be seen. I admit that I'm not terribly impressed by the editorial "Eat the Rich" - donning an army jacket and DMs does not make you a revolutionary. But I shall reserve my judgement until I get myself to a newsagent!
