The Power of Anti-Fashion

Entertainment 08 Feb 2019

From army uniforms to your mom’s old Gap hoodie, everything that has never before been considered “fashion” is now fair game for the bizarre world of prêt-à-porter. The same clothes that would have mortified you in 2005 if you had run into your ex in them are now strutting down fashion week’s hottest runways. And no one does the anti-fashion thing better than Vetements, the streetwear-infused label that’s going down in history as the sartorial trailblazer (pun not intended) of our era. Whether you like it or not.
Which brings up the question: in an age when everything is Vetements, what isn’t Vetements? A tantalizing mystery, but we think we’ve cracked the code. Below, here are 16 looks that are *not* Vetements… yet. Demna, are you listening?
1) This toddler rocking an oversized backpack and hot pink dino shoes is not Vetements.

2) This still from Leto, a Russian rock-n-roll film by Kirill Serebrennikov, is not Vetements.
