Put it this way: if I enter a fancy restaurant and begin to scream instead of keeping my voice low speaking politely, unless I’m Mick Jagger, I’d probably be shown the door, more or less kindly. This is because I’m using a type of communication (in this case, verbal) not in keeping with the environment in which I was at that moment.
Well, The same applies for clothing: we know how important body language is, and even what we wear sends messages very specific: of this sometimes we are well aware, sometimes not.
For example, no one would go to a business meeting wearing pajamas and slippers: it’s something obvious to anyone, unless you want to confound the present (and lose the job). But most of the time the messages are much less obvious and are perceived more by instinct than by reason: when it comes to elegance, a component comes into play extremely subjective and difficult to quantify, that is the aesthetic taste. Although this factor is very personal, there are “rules” codified, widely accepted, that change according to the epochs.
As in all activities related to human creativity, some people are more capable than others to use and interpret these rules: so as we set the greatest composers at the top of musical creativity, equally we do with great directors in cinema industry, and so on for painting, sculpture, narrative etc….
If we talk about clothing, the figure outstanding over all others is that of the designer. If for a director is essential to have a good group that allows him to produce a movie of high quality, equally we can say for the designer: at the base of a collection of sublime level there must be a group that has the necessary experience and sensitivity to transform stylistic ideas in clothes to wear.
Let me close by underlining that this is exactly the task that the agency Hoplites performs with enthusiasm: concretizing into wonderful reality the wildest dreams of the most inspired designers .
