Sun symbols in Fall-Winter 2014/2015 collection by Badgley Mischka
In mid-July 2014 Jupiter, a leading indicator of fashion tastes, moves into Leo. This sunny Zodiac sign has a completely different energy background for the development of fashion. Its ruler is Sun, the source of life on Earth, bright and generous. Therefore we are looking for new techniques that help us to express our character, individuality and creativity. The most notable and win-win techniques are symbols of Sun and Leo sign. For example, the shape of a circle, concentric rings, crown, sun, as well as plants and animals of Leo, animalistic safari prints etc.
It appears that some designers are also well aware of these cosmic changes. To illustrate this idea, we have chosen a collection by Badgley Mischka, which correctly reflects the astrological conditions. It uses concentric circles, Sun symbols and polka dot on a quiet, pastel background. For Leo sign more bright and sated shades are characteristic. The collection itself can be seen as a reflection of the transition of Jupiter from Cancer in Leo. It is clear that this collection was created much earlier, so the designer was difficult to leapfrog existing astrological influences. Also indicators of an individual horoscope of designer play a role. But Sun in his models will inspire us still, at least, one year.
