Freaks, geeks and all manner of peculiar characters ruled the runway this season in Paris with clothes that seemed to be designed to wear while smoking under the bleachers with your fellow deviants.
We proudly let our freak flag fly at Studio Ombre and embrace difference as a covetable asset so we're thrilled to see these clothes for outsiders take centre stage and can't stop imagining background stories for each ensemble.
A neon sign stating "You're obviously in the wrong place" shone brightly at Off-White's runway show which set the tone for these clothes that seem tailored for shrugging while feeling excluded.
T-shirts amblazoned with a singular word - off - and oddly warped and wrapped construction gave this collection an apathetic mood, like a well dressed teen with an attitude problem bumming cigarettes without saying thank you.
Finally, it seems like Galliano's rebellious spirit has arrived at the house of Margiela with a strong collection of layered silhouettes and cut-and-paste garments that look perfect for the art and design kids at school who prefer deconstruction over prep.
The military theme seems particularly well suited to rebellious students fighting against life with snarky comments made from within oversized clothes that shun and draw attention with layers of khaki, wool and badges.
This fashion collective has been thrust into the spotlight after Demna Gvasalia's appointment as artistic director of Balenciaga, and this collection seems to mirror the excitement and angst of suddenly being recognised, a fashion puberty if you will.
Hand-me-downs with unusual proportions, stoner-chic tracksuits, lazily tucked school uniform suiting, and ill-fitting flannel-esque shirts paint a picture of 90s teenage apathy just after the death of Kurt Cobain. Why even try.
Until this season, we weren't aware of Vika Gazinskaya but this collection of down-and-out clothes for nostalgic teens who smoke pot under the bleachers to get away from their small town lives has completely blown us away.
Drab, slumpy and sporty motifs conceal a hidden agenda that feels like a dissolution and dissatisfaction of contemporary life - a desire to retreat into the past in the most comfortable clothes possible, to retreat and conceal the fragility of modern youth. We love it.
Olympia Le Tan
Are you the artist or the art opening guest? That's the question Le Tan has posed her clients this season with a joyous collection of nostalgic thift-bin meets teacher's pet garments that are worn to be seen.
This collection's take-home trend for fashion on a dime is to mix your socks, dress bright and hit that art opening on Thursday night to get yourself a free glass of wine. Attitude is everything.
