The Gauze Maxi Shirt

Good Design and Unique Style #formodernhumans

Today, we introduce The Gauze Maxi Shirt by Meagratia, a clothing brand from Tokyo – Japan.

In the realm of Japanese fashion, Meagratia stands out as one of the most intriguing brands, aligning seamlessly with our values. Each season, the collection remains deliberately curated, avoiding excess and focusing on good design and quality. There’s a well-developed theme that goes to the essence. In fact, we do not need pointless stuff. We need less but better. Moreover, the genderless approach and the meticulous attention to detail speak volumes about the brand’s ethos.

In contrast to the prevalent narrative of fast fashion and top brands exploiting their labourers, Meagrazia diverges by acknowledging the pattern maker on the garment tag. This adds transparency to the brand’s policy.

About the design
Unisex shirt made with double-layer gauze material using 40-thread yarn. Stand-up collar with a ribbon cascade decoration along the front. Straight line, dropped shoulder, adjustable wrist button closure. Shaped hemline and yoke on shoulders. Flamed cotton yarn is used, featuring irregularities on the fabric surface to create an elegant shirt with a vintage flavour. Also, an artisan in the centre of Kyoto dyes the fabric by hand. This piece stands out for its design and exceptional colouring.

The Gauze Maxi Shirt

About the material
Flamed cotton is among the most renowned types of cotton. Specifically, a fabric that contains slight lumps and imperfections, which are not defects but are instead highlighted, deliberately left within the yarn. Moreover, such imperfections are intentionally created during spinning, through a particular process involving knotting or twisting the cotton. So, the resulting texture is rough and irregular, allowing one to feel the perfect interlocking of each fibre, a characteristic that adds great value to the item created from this material.
100% cotton.

About the colour
Teal: an intense hue that makes it absolutely unique, and it’s very flattering.

Wash by hand. Easy care product.

Styling tips
The Gauze Maxi Shirt is a versatile garment you can wear through the seasons. Pair it with trousers or skirts for your work attire. Also, we love it under The Zipped Blouson. But wear it with shorts and sandals for your holidays. Whether for work or leisure, The Gauze Maxi Shirt offers comfort and style.

The Algorithm Dictatorship

Exploring Challenges for Niche Fashion within Totalitarian Thought

The algorithm dictatorship, sculpting the fashion industry with utmost precision, has created a perfect regime where every click, swipe, and trend is meticulously curated. Yet, beneath this facade of efficiency, the danger of totalitarian thinking looms large.

In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion, where trends shift like sand dunes in the wind, algorithms emerge as a formidable force, reshaping the industry in unprecedented ways. In recent years, algorithms have become the silent puppeteers pulling the strings behind our screens. They curate our social media feeds, tailor our online shopping experiences, and even influence the designs we’re presented with.
According to Business of Fashion, ‘algorithms are increasingly driving what consumers see, like, buy, and wear, and not always for the best.’

While on the surface, this might seem like a convenient way to streamline decision-making and personalise experiences, the reality is far more complex. In fact, it’s never been easier to manipulate the masses. Like never before, people have the same faces, the same clothes, and the same accessories. Ultimately, the same conformist, homogeneous mass thought.

Niche fashion & the algorithm dictatorship

People like us, independent minds passionate about niche fashion, can see the danger of the algorithm dictatorship. Niche fashion thrives on creativity, individuality, and unconventional styles. Therefore, it finds itself at odds with the algorithms. But in a world where algorithms prioritize mass appeal and mainstream trends, the space for niche fashion to flourish is shrinking.

However, the issue goes beyond mere visibility. It strikes at the heart of diversity and innovation within the fashion industry. Algorithms, by their very nature, favour the familiar over the unfamiliar, the safe over the daring. While algorithms excel at processing large quantities of data, they may overlook or undervalue items or trends with lower levels of engagement or popularity. In essence, algorithms prioritize the visibility and promotion of items associated with larger numbers, potentially overshadowing niche or less prevalent offerings. This means that emerging designers and niche labels, already operating on the fringes of the industry, struggle to compete for attention against established brands.

Specifically, algorithms contribute to the homogenization of fashion, stifling creativity and diminishing the sense of discovery and excitement intrinsic to niche fashion. The possibility of stumbling upon a unique piece that speaks to your soul is gone. Instead, we’re fed a constant stream of cookie-cutter styles tailored to fit within the narrow confines of algorithmic preference.

Alternative sources #formodernhumans

To resist this contemporary totalitarian regime, the first step is to understand that algorithms control what we see. Second, seek out alternative sources of inspiration. This could involve following independent fashion designers on social media, exploring niche fashion blogs and publications, or shopping at small independent boutiques. Also, choosing alternative social media like the Fediverse. Therefore, prioritize platforms which offer diverse perspectives.

In conclusion, the algorithm dictatorship has created a totalitarian regime that manipulates people’s preferences in the fashion industry. And, more generally, in our lives. But amidst the stifling conformity, a rebellion brews: a call for passionate individuals to preserve the essence of niche fashion. A call for individuals to reclaim their autonomy.
