The Western Front Collection
Nostalgia resonates in the season’s most ethereal pieces and we’re all here for it. Revolved around memory, Western Front is incited by cowboy-inspired looks and re-envisions what we think of the old-timey trend. With modern takes on the pieces, there are exquisite knits, from floral sweaters to high-neck sweater dresses. Ruffled dresses and tops with olive green hues bring us back to a 90’s revival. Our favorite piece of this season’s crop would then be the flared high-waisted jeans with washed-out denim. After all, what’s more fitting to bring out bygone feelings than a good pair of boot-cut faded jeans?
Americana has always held a dear place in our hearts, for it has deep historical roots and reminds us of a chronicle of past events that bring us to the present. However, Western Front also illustrates a time when humanity and greed are found at fault. Transpired in the period of World War I, it represented a 400-mile stretch of land weaving through France and Belgium, and served as the primary theater of war. And then the world was never the same again. The casualty of war was magnificent, with drastic changes on politics, economics, social, and cultures. It was an era filled with ear-splitting hatred, disconcert societies, cacophonous gunshots and bombs. Individuals were not encouraged to meet other individuals with a different way of life. That was 1914.
Here we are – in 2018. Gone were the times when freedom was restricted. Now, we embrace cross-cultural interactions, and foster interfaith dialogue. Culture assimilation is an inevitable movement seen in almost every corner of the world, which performs as a melting pot of disparate rhythms and cultures. There is nothing more loving than to see a Jewish woman and a Muslim woman sitting next to each other, and talking about what the future holds for us. And this is what Western Front is all about. We are in the pursuit of equality and empowerment, no matter what our skin color is. We undertake a mission that believes in self-expression and self-confidence.
