Just because the “grunge” look started on the streets, doesn’t mean the couture runway doesn’t effect JC Penny’s. We took a look at couture runway shows from 5 years ago, 3 years ago and 1 year ago to see the affect they had on what’s in store and on the streets today. We analyzed Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix and Elie Saab’s couture shows Fall/Winter 2006, F/W 2008 and F/W 2010 to pick out trends that we see translated into the fashion of today. The top five trends we spotted were fur, lace, metallic, red hues and sheer fabrics.
Here are some of the ways we have found it has transitioned from couture to street wear in stores and on the streets.
