Fashion Trend Alert | The Visor




































































Been coined Sporty Chic, Gym Class Heroes, and Sport Deluxe this trend brought us most of the exciting pieces to work with. Subtly been around for about 3 seasons now and I believe its exit peak. One of the items making a heavy cover up is the Visor. 

The perpetrators of this are: Balenciaga of course, who could forget that visor they showcased during their AW 2012 collection! Read more about the history and background creation of this masterpiece here. Marc by Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Fleet Ilya are among the major designers who brought us the impeccable various designs of the visor. O’ wait my my, how could I possibly forget Alexander McQueen’s offering!

Some of the main early adopters who have been spitting gasoline on this heat of a trend are; cray-cray Anna Dello Russo who was ferociously sporting the super haute couture Balenciaga visor during Paris Fashion Week and the Bad Ass Chirl Rihanna who has been spotted opting for some S&M, bondage, straps, studs, buckles and leather in Fleet Iiya. 

Well of course the Street fashion bloggers are all over this trend like a case of bad sun burn from the Namibia rays.
