What Are The Different Types Of Pants?

A piece of clothing used from the waistline to anywhere between the ankles and knees and wrapping each leg is known as a pair of trousers, slacks, or pants. Comparable to trousers, briefs have legs that stop just above the knee or higher or lower, based on the clothing design. In specific settings, such as the uniform, wherein fitted shorts may well be referred to as “short trousers” in the UK, pants may be referred to as “long trousers” to differentiate them from shorts. The market for womens pants in Australia is anticipated to expand between 2020 and 2026. In Australia, most women prefer to wear pants to protect their legs from sunburn. The Shanghai graveyard in Turpan, Sinkiang (Tocharian), in contemporary western China, is the site of the discovery of the oldest surviving pair of pants, which date to the time between the thirteenth and 10th century BC. The woollen trousers were presumably designed for riding horses because they featured broad crotches and straight legs.

Types of pants

BAGGY PANTS

Loose-fitting, flared-out trousers fit at the waistline. The waistline of baggy trousers is frequently elastic or tied with a string. coziestSuch trousers are among the cosiest to wear and are therefore very well-liked.

BOOTS BELL

Bell-shaped bottoms have a bottom that flares out. They were popular during the 1970s and occasionally made a resurgence. Both subtle and overdone bell bottoms are acceptable.

FATIGUE SUITS

The design of fatigue trousers was inspired by military gear. They frequently have patched compartments on the side and go by the names cargo pants or military pants. They are most frequently found in neutral shades of grey or olive.

JEANS

Jeans are stylish and versatile for people of all ages. The dependable denim fabric may be stonewashed, shredded, and curled to create a variety of textures.

There are many various variations of denim jeans. Many types of jeans include Capri, baggy pants, skinny jeans, high rise, low rise, bootleg, straight-legged, regular cut, and bootleg. Mainly, there are numerous sizes and lengths available for jeans. It understands the many measures that go into making a jeans pair assists with fit and style. For men and women, jeans continue to be one of the prevalent forms of pants.

PARKA HAREM

Top Fashion Brands In The World

Top Fashion Brands In The World

Before we share with you the top fashion brands in the world (2021), there’s something to agree on. The word ‘top’ (not only in fashion) is subjective. It is top, according to what you like. The same applies to hot, popular, demanded, high-end, luxurious, and so on. In the past, top fashion brands and companies were measured according to their market value.

However, a more objective ranking of top fashion brands needs more than the number of sold products. In this article, I combine two lists of ‘Top Fashion Brands’:

A. Top fashion brands in the world – based on their value (Brand Value).

B. World’s most popular fashion brands – based on social media mentions, consumer behaviour.

Without further ado, here are the…

A.    Top fashion brands of 2020-2021 (10 most valuable fashion brands)

B.    Top fashion brands (best 25 – Lyst Index 2020/21)

lyst.com is a marketplace that ranks brands based on consumer demand and sales. Lyst analyses sites for consumer terms such as the hottest, most popular, and most recognised clothing brands and companies.

These terms are then used as further judging criteria components in their ‘Top Fashion Brands’ ranking index system. To create the top fashion brands in the world, we have combined brands’ valuation data, Google analytics and, Lyst’s findings as below:

 – Shopping behaviour of over 9 million online buyers.

– Sales data from over 12,000 designers and online stores.

– Search data from Google and other worldwide statistics.

– Social media mentions, engagement, and brand involvement during the COVID-19 crisis.

Without further ado, here are the top fashion brands in the world right now – 25 best in 2020-2021.

1.  Off-White

Here we are, we’ve reached the number one place in the top fashion brands in the world right now. The winner is Off-White, the hottest brand in the world for the third successive quarter.

The designer label builds on younger buyers and celebs who champion the label’s anti-establishment take on luxury. It is also one of the best streetwear fashion brands of 2021.

With a digital-native approach, both Off-White (which surpassed 10 million Instagram followers this quarter) and founder Virgil Abloh (5.2 million followers) have a huge social media following.

Off-White makes the top of best designers brands in the world thanks to recent collabs and excellent collections:

•Launched the Activate Movement program with Evian.

•Released a Lunar New Year capsule collection.

•Debuted Off-White x Air Jordan IV at Paris Fashion Week.

Best Fashion Brands – Ranking During COVID-19

Ranking top fashion brands during COVID-19 is not an easy task. For example, 2019 ended on a note of optimism for the coming decade in fashion. Asia was booming again, luxury was on the rise, and a new wave of conscious fashion designers was emerging fast.

Unfortunately, 2020 put a damper on the optimism, as few in the fashion industry imagined what would come next. Wildfires ravaged Australia, geopolitical tensions escalated, and then, COVID-19 put the world on total lockdown, changing life beyond recognition.

In response to the virus, Asia was grounded to a halt, retailers lost hope, and fashion buyers were confined to their homes, resulting in a sharp drop in demand. There were no longer glamorous events, concerts, social occasions, and holidays and slowly, fashion purchases started to dry up.

On top of all, COVID-19 lockdown has also disrupted the sourcing of raw materials, manufacturing, logistics, and retail operations of most brands. Without a doubt, the upcoming reports will draw a more precise picture of top fashion brands and how COVID-19 has impacted them. For example, despite not being in the top fashion brands list of 2021, Adidas, Levi’s, Uniqlo, and Nordstrom, kept improving user experience and transparency and most likely will influence the 2022 ranks.

2. Balenciaga

Balenciaga is a luxury fashion house founded in 1917 by Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga. Christian Dior referred to Balenciaga as a couturier of uncompromising standards and “the master of us all.”

Nowadays, Demna Gvasalia brings Balenciaga back to its creative roots. The designer works closely with house archives to reimagine the work of Crist�bal Balenciaga — from a fresh perspective, of course. The French brand hits the ground running when it comes to streetwear.

Balenciaga reaches the 2nd spot among the top fashion brands in the world thanks to the following:

•Released koala hoodies to raise funds for Australia’s bushfire relief.

•Flooded the runway for apocalyptic fall/winter ‘20 Paris Fashion Week show.

•Parent company Kering said the brand would manufacture surgical masks in response to Covid-19.

3. Nike

Nike is an American multinational corporation that is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories, and services.

Nike’s presence in the top fashion brands of 2021 is justified by revenue, collaborations, and how it dealt with COVID-19, in regard to partners and customers at the same time. Nike also hits the top fashion brands in the world thanks to:

•Released ‘Mamba Forever’ ad in tribute to Kobe Bryant.

•Announced a multi-year partnership with Liverpool FC.

•Donated over $15 million to the Covid-19 response effort.

4. Gucci

Gucci is an Italian luxury brand of fashion and leather goods founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence, Tuscany, in 1921.

Today, Prada is conducted by a revolutionary duo of designers: Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, nailing the sweet spot between classic and fun. Prada is one of the most popular clothing brands in 2020-2021 thanks to:

Founded by Valentino Garavani, the house is known for its trademark fabric shade known as “Valentino red”. Meghan Markle wore a red Valentino dress for an official engagement during the February 2019 royal tour of Morocco.

Valentino went on to design custom wedding dresses for icons such as Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, and Julia Roberts. In 2016 under the sole creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, a new chapter began for the brand when a new set of values’, contemporary but faithful to the brand’s heritage, were created.

Met Gala Themes Over the Years: A Look Back at Many First Mondays in May

Met Gala Themes Over the Years: A Look Back at Many First Mondays in May

It’s official: the theme for the 2023 Met Gala is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.” The exhibition will examine the life—and creative legacy—of the late designer, who shaped the face of fashion for more than half a century.

The theme announcement is an important one. It dictates the dress code (celebrities, designers, and change-makers are challenged to create costumes that serve as both a fashion statement and a tribute to the concept), the decor, and most importantly,  the larger purpose of the night itself. The gala is, yes, a major star-studded fundraising event, but its importance goes beyond dollars raised and social media impressions made. It’s a grand display of art as fashion and fashion as art, showing how both forms comprise and define our cultural fabric. 

Each theme is chosen with the utmost consideration—what story does this tell? What history does it teach? In 2018, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” showcased hundreds of holy items from the Vatican. A few years earlier, “China: Through the Looking Glass” celebrated China’s influence on Western and Eastern design, while May 2019 explored “Camp” and its exaggerated artifice.

Below, we’ve charted out each year’s Met Gala theme dating back to 1995, the first year Anna Wintour became a chair of the event. 

2022: “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”

“In America: An Anthology of Fashion” was the second part of the Metropolitan Museum’s examination of American fashion. (The first, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” debuted in September 2021 and served as the theme for that year’s Met Gala.) Whereas “Lexicon” was an expansive look at American fashion as a whole—especially its younger designers—Anthology acted as a historical retrospective on both the designs and the stories of their makers: “The stories really reflect the evolution of American style, but they also explore the work of individual tailors, dress-makers, and designers,” Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, explains. “What’s exciting for me is that some of the names will be very familiar to students of fashion like Charles James, Halston, and Oscar de la Renta, but a lot of the other names really have been forgotten, overlooked or relegated into the footnotes of fashion history.”

2021: In America: A Lexicon of Fashion

Andrew Bolton, The Costume Institute’s Wendy Yu Curator in Charge, told Vogue he centered the 2021 event around the question “who gets to be American?” which was originally posed on a red, white, and blue silk sash from Prabal Gurung’s tenth anniversary collection. “American designers are at the forefront of conversations around diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, gender fluidity, and body positivity,” he said. “The framework of the show enables us to focus on the younger designers who are engaging thoughtfully and deeply with those ideas.” The exhibition included over 100 pieces from American designers, ranging from Marc Jacobs to La Réunion.

Guests, which included co-chairs Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka, abided by the night’s official dress code: American independence.

2020: “About Time: Fashion and Duration”

The 2020 gala was postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic, but its theme is still worth revisiting:  In honor of the Met’s 150th anniversary, “About Time” took a look back at a century-and-a-half’s worth of fashion. Bolton found inspiration in Orlando, the 1992 film based on the Virginia Woolf novel of the same name. “What I like about Woolf’s version of time is the idea of a continuum,” Bolton said. “There’s no beginning, middle, or end. It’s one big fat middle. I always felt the same about fashion. Fashion is the present.”

2019: “Camp: Notes on Fashion”

For 2019’s exhibition, Bolton drew on Susan Sontag’s seminal 1964 essay, “Notes on ‘Camp’.” The essay describes a sensibility marked by performance, excess, and a kind of winking bad taste exemplified by figures like Oscar Wilde and outré aesthetic movements such as Art Nouveau. Among the pieces on display were dazzling looks from Off-White, Schiaparelli, Moschino, Dior, Thom Browne, and lots more.

2018: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”

2018’s divine theme had hundreds of holy items on display, including dozens of artifacts and objects sent over from the Vatican (most of which had never seen the light beyond Rome). Guests rose to the occasion at the annual gala, with Rihanna dressing as the pope and Katy Perry as an angel (wings and all).

Madonna in Jean Paul Gaultier and Narcisa Pheres jewelry

2017: “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”

The Met gala toasted the legendary Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo and featured her “objects,” as she likes to call them. Some guests, like Rihanna and Caroline Kennedy, stuck to the theme and sported original pieces, while others interpreted the topic through other designers. The event was co-chaired by Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.

Ysaunny Brito and Olivier Rousteing in Balmain

2016: “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”

The exclusive event went back to the future with tech at the forefront. Stars like Claire Danes literally lit up the ball in a glowing gown, while Emma Watson wore a five-piece Calvin Klein Collection set, which was made from recycled plastic bottles. The exhibition itself focused on the dichotomy between handmade and machine-made fashion, displaying more than 100 pieces of haute couture and ready-to-wear.

2015: “China: Through the Looking Glass”

The gala celebrated China’s influence on Western fashion with a theme fit for an emperor. The exhibition was a joint effort between the head of the museum’s Department of Asian Art and the Costume Institute, showing looks from Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Christian Dior Haute Couture. Attendees from George and Amal Clooney to Rihanna (wearing a stunning yellow robe by Chinese designer Guo Pei) dressed on-theme for a night at the museum.

2014: “Charles James: Beyond Fashion”

The museum celebrated a major figure in the fashion world, but one less known to the general public. The Charles James theme was lively and highly anticipated, with a display of 100 of his most important designs. Co-chaired by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bradley Cooper, and Oscar de la Renta, the party was filled with ball gowns of the sleek and larger-than-life variety.

From designer retrospective to celebrations of the supernatural, see all the themes of the last two decades, below:

2013: “Punk: Chaos to Couture”

2012: “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations”

2011: “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”
