The Wrap Up – Trends of 2010
2010 has been a roller coaster year. One of the biggest UPS was the rescue of the 33 Chilean miners that were trapped for 2 months. Upon their release Oakley hooked them up with these cop shades and spent 6k (at retail, not cost) on 10 million dollars worth of publicity. And DOWNS, like the loss of one of fashions most innovative voices, Alexander McQueen to suicide. Also JD Salinger’s death was tragic (c’mon, you know you had a thing for Holden Caulfield). But also Alexa Chung has stepped into the trendsetter spotlight this year, bringing platforms with socks along for the ride. And The Jersey Shore cast has kept their momentum for another year, keeping us well versed in all things guido. But who could more deeply epitomize the twists and turns that 2010 has thrown us, than the cast of the Golden Girls? Jump it!
