Style Sample: Winter 2021

August 20, 2021

If you really want to know what the kids are wearing right now, don’t look to the streets.

They’re not there.

We cast this season’s Style Sample on Instagram — it’s there, online, in your hands and in your pockets, where you’ll find a truer expression of self.

And it’s not just in the way young people dress, but also in the way their photos are presented and published.

Like artists, the whole image (filtered, Facetuned, designed), language (captions, comments, emojis) and publication style (post, story, reel, Snap, Tik Tok, etc, etc, etc, etc) is part of the full mood and message being expressed.

It’s a new era.

Bye, Tommy Ton.
