The blog Advanced Style has been showing New York’s silver haired confidence since 2008. Now Advanced style inspired the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection. In an article of the French Vogue, Marc Jacobs stated it as one of his main sources of inspiration for his new collection.
Iris Apfel in Advanced Style: “Young woman, you’re gonna be an old woman one day. Don’t worry about it!” In an Interview with www.nowness.com, Ari Seth Cohen the writer of advanced style said: „I noticed how many young girls are appropriating style from older women: leopard print, fur, turbans and hats. In general, the older women wear these things naturally, with more confidence.“ His aim is to show people the creativity and vitality of older women, and that there is no need to be afraid of aging.
Hopefully next summer we will able to meet the cool silver ladies in the cinema and learn more about true style. Have first glance at the advanced Style Film trailer.
