CULT COLLECTIVE GIVEAWAY –TIMELESSNESS

Cult Collective Giveaway poster MJ AND STUFF

I can’t remember the last time #TGIF exuded so much relevance. Throughout this month I have an awesome opportunity to conduct an incredible giveaway in collaboration with Cult Collective –I think we might be playing a part in re-defining history here. Speaking of nostalgia, you have to be dwelling under a jelly rock to avoid a known fact that over the last decade, some of the most pioneering fashion designers of our times looked to influences from the past in order to forge a sustainable career. Brilliant as this practice is, we cannot deny that we live in excitingly fast paced times which deserve a testimony for the future. I think it goes without saying that Cult Collective plays an integral role in executing this sentiment and their expressionistic second collection more than attests to it. This week’s question is requires a bit of thought; HOW FAR IN THE PAST SHOULD ONE GO, IN ODER TO MAKE A STYLISH MOVE FORWARD? Tweet me @Mahlatsej with hashtag #CultCollectiveGiveaway or hit me via facebook or even right here on the blog.

  1. Kids of 2013 have got no class. they’re very boring people, they have already everything at their fingertips. They are obsessed with technology, but there is nothing behind their illogical worship of technology.
    Guys from 70’s/80’s, instead, were much more interesting, because they were not obsessed with the past: THEY WERE OBSESSED WITH THE FUTURE.
    For example, in the UK, in the 80s, kids found it harder. Most of them were all without money and without work, therefore they had to find a way to survive/entertain themselves. It was beautiful and exciting, because taught you to be self-sufficient and creative.
    They were influenced by the punk movement, so they were obsessed with wanting to destroy the past. The past was useless, was rubbish for them.
    Then I think that kids today should be guided by the 70s/80s punks, not for their style, but for their desire to move forward, that sets in motion their creativity. Only in this way you may see some innovations in the fashion industry too.
    I hope that kids today will raise up and begin their own revolution.
    it’s time of revolution.

  2. To get to where we are with fashion today…garments were simply improved from time to time and i feel like,although one who has some type of fashion history knowledge, would expect the same process to carry on,we instead are goin back to “the old ways”.Its working quite positively so I personally promote going waaay back into the past(not some Paleolithic steez though,unless you’re like MAD creative,like you got the whole “bones” idea goin on,pretty cool!) ,already we have the whole 1980s/1990s trends thing goin on lately,polka dots stay coming back into the scene and pin stripped tops and blazers are pretty cool too,turbans were at some recent point trending HARD and they themselves date back to like the 20th century if not even before that…(:

  4. It is indeed a thought provoking question. One is faced with the challenge of balance as you embrace elements of the past as foundations of influence and inspiration with creative and imaginitive elements of the fututure by expressing your vision. I think this is where many people fall short, striking the balance. The idea of style is to acquire your own through influnces not look like an exact carbon copy of historical fashions and figures. We live in a completely different time and it would be a shame to neglect that. You cannot write off history as a sense of influence, fashion in itself has an evolutionary nature. However, it is also vital that we remain individuals and with that comes the freedom of choice. We live in amazing times where expression is encouraged through various mediums, one of them being fashion and the way you present yourself. Clothes are only part of a lifestyle you choose to encampass. It’s fascinating cause these days you see a bit of everything. People are focused on being individuals and what they like personally. You’ll spot influences from the hippie revolution embedded in boho chic, tailoring and silhouettes that date back to the 20’s, funk and hip hop influenced by the colourful 80’s and 90’s. My point is that freedom seems to reign, people go as far as wish and we have the resources to make it look functional, practical and mordern by adding elements of ourselves.
