The Met Gala is over, but there is a trend that is very “dramatic”, very frivolous and cumbersome just like the fashion gala that stays, that is, the tails of the dresses and skirts are collectively known as “trailing fabric”.
Trailing fabric is understood as a “tail” design (trailing = train + tail) with the fabric being extended at a certain part of the overall outfit. The fact that this sophisticated trend appears on the red carpets and weddings is not a surprise, but at the beginning of this 2022, thinner and more flying tails also “penetrate” into the everyday style. They can be likened to a “small piece of comedy” added to the “face” of fashion after a gloomy period due to distance.
With the dresscode ” Gilded Glamor “, this year’s Met Gala recreates a splendid era of the United States from 1870 to 1890. Blake Lively , Katy Perry, Jessica Chastain, etc., the female stars are all wearing sparkles, massive and of course with a bit of “coloring” like the Met Gala always needs. Besides the luxurious gowns, classic corset designs , the leisurely sweeping of the trailing fabric is indispensable. If Blake Lively ushered in this trend with a very “twist” design that could “change color” by Versace , Bella Hadid was more “modest” with a graceful silk band or two attached to the glove .
The design of the stern is not too new in the fashion industry, in fact, it was inherently a “fashion” in the late 19th century, appearing most often on wedding dresses , evening dresses and important occasions. At that time, the part of the skirt was sewn long by the ancients, highlighting the nobility and wealth of the ladies. As for men’s fashion, it is also often seen on royal robes or high-ranking officials, the most common today being the formal dragonfly blouse.
However, it was not Anna Wintour or any of the Met Gala host members who started the trend in the new season as “ugly Italian” – Miuccia Prada and her new partner, Raf Simons . On Prada’s Spring-Summer catwalk, mini skirts that were very compact and “conservative” now fluttered freely with a long tail behind. They float in the iridescent effect of satin fabric, flutter in the candy palette and radiate fresh energy throughout the fashion capitals .
Raf Simons continues to prove his love of trailing fabric in the Fall-Winter 2022 collection. But instead of outfits, he refreshes it with accessories like bags or hats. Raf also brings a more mystical and mysterious vibe with inspiration from an old Dutch painting of a woman wearing a green coat for her husband (referring to adultery).
Although it seems so far away from reality and lacks applicability, trailing fabric is still naturally present on the street and “catching the eye” of fashionistas who love novelty. In addition to Prada’s mini skirts , the designs of shirts and dresses that add or extend the tail are equally popular. They highlight the image of fashionistas in the crowd and “upgrade” the femininity in the mixes.
To “normalize” this design, you can use individual menswear items such as a blazer or suit to “create a fulcrum” for the flight of the sterns. To avoid causing more confusion, it is best to stay calm about the colors by using neutral tones .
