Fashion Trend 2015: Exposed Zippers to Nowhere

We were in Forever 21 the other day and noticed the slip on the right below with

an exposed zipper that is functionless.  It is pure decoration.   Exposed zipper

fashion trend has not entered what we call a post-mod phase of applications

like pockets and zippers to garments are pure sign — without function.

Fashion Trend: Women’s Tops With Side Pockets

The casual fashion world has finally caught up to our lead of sewn pockets on tops.

Of course, for us pockets are both useful and significant (i.e. serve as a sign)

Below is one of our Post-Mod ® racerbacks with mod pockets contrasted with

a shirt we just saw at Forever 21.
