New Commodity Luxury Fashion Brands

New Commodity Luxury Fashion Brands

«Quiet Fashion» and «Commodity Fashion» have traditionally been two distinct concepts within the fashion industry and have not been directly related. These two fashion realms, traditionally at odds, represent divergent approaches and trends within the industry. However, there’s more to their relationship than meets the eye, and a new wave of possibilities is emerging :

1. Quiet Fashion:

  • Fast Fashion: Commodity fashion, on the other hand, is often associated with fast fashion. It involves producing low-cost, trendy clothing quickly to meet consumer demand for the latest styles.
  • Disposable Clothing: Commodity fashion often results in disposable clothing that is worn for a short period before being discarded in favor of the next trend.
  • Mass Production: These brands typically engage in mass production and may not prioritize sustainability or ethical production practices.
  • Prominent Branding: Commodity fashion brands often have prominent logos and branding to create brand recognition and appeal to consumers looking for recognizable labels.

2. Commodity Fashion:

  • Quiet fashion is often associated with minimalism and simplicity in design. It focuses on clean lines, understated colors, and a reduction of excess ornamentation or embellishments.
  • Many quiet fashion brands prioritize sustainability and ethical practices. They may use eco-friendly materials, promote slow fashion, and have transparent supply chains.
  • Quiet fashion often features timeless pieces that are not subject to the rapid changes of fashion trends. These pieces are meant to be versatile and enduring.
  • Quiet fashion brands tend to have subtle or minimalist branding, with less conspicuous logos or labels.

In short, Quiet Fashion and mercantile fashion represent different ends of the fashion spectrum. Relaxed fashion emphasizes timeless design, sustainability, and a minimalist approach, while basic or basic fashion is associated with fast fashion, disposable clothing, and mass production.
While not directly related, and reflecting different philosophies and trends within the fashion industry, some elements of commercial fashion can be incorporated into silent fashion, although this would normally be done selectively and in a way that aligns with the values and principles of silent fashion.
Below are some examples of how basic fashion elements can be adapted for use quietly:

In short, quiet fashion and mercantile fashion represent different ends of the fashion spectrum.
Relaxed fashion emphasizes timeless design, sustainability, and a minimalist approach, while basic or basic fashion is associated with fast fashion, disposable clothing, and mass production.
While they are not directly related, and reflect different philosophies and trends within the fashion industry, there is at least one interesting element of commodity fashion that could be applied to silent fashion, although it would normally be done selectively and in a that aligns with the values and principles of silent fashion, and that could give rise to a new trend or a new business opportunity, producing a more «accessible» silent luxury.
We refer to the application of Efficient Production Techniques: While silent fashion tends to prioritize quality and sustainability, it can still benefit from the efficient production techniques used in basic fashion, by automating processes, for example. This could involve streamlining the production process to reduce waste and costs while maintaining high ethical and environmental standards, and as a result, luxury fashion that is sustainable, environmentally friendly, and respects the codes of the luxury sector , but at the same time sell at a more reasonable price.
