Skins Style

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

I’ve just been reading the Skins style blog on the E4 site and although I’m not a massive fan of the show, some of the style references are really interesting. I’m actually quite impressed by the styling, I’ve never paid much attention to what the characters wore in the show but the clothes seem to be chosen with real care and matched to each characters personality. For example the way that Cook’s wardrobe is made up of casuals, clothes made popular by football fans in the 1980s, because he is a bit of a hooligan. I like that some pieces are designer, some are vintage and some are just plain old highstreet.

Fashion vs Style – Ted Polhemus

“In the beginning there was style. Invented by our earliest ancestors some 100,000 years ago, this approach to transforming appearance served to mark out the boundaries of each tribe, to indicate differences of role and status within the group and to emphasise the unchanging continuity of traditional ways of life. Then, in the Renaissance with the birth of modernism, fashion was born – demonstrating and celebrating constant change and progress. In the last few decades, however, fashion has gone out of fashion and style has re-emerged as the dominant force but, now, with the emphasis upon individual, personal expression.”
