First, ELLE's trend roundup was Manic Panic hair dye. Then it was giant logo tees worn as dresses. This week, they've moved onto the wonders of neon, citing Stella McCartney and Donna Karan as fashion forward examples of the trend. We adore ELLE - especially its market editor, Carol Han - but we can't help wonder if way deep down, the editors want to be at Boom Box or MisShapes or The Annex, wearing rehab jeans and acid yellow nail polish and snorting glitter with tequila shots. Or, something much more interesting: ELLE is acknowledging the continuing influence of club culture on the runway, but in a subtler way so their readers - some conservative, some (gasp) adult - won't be apprehensive of buying into the trends. Either way, we can't fault the magazine for falling in love with the screaming symbols of downtown - sometimes, all you wanna do is dance.
