Fashion people talk a lot about how great things used to be, especially in the ‘90s. But isn’t it awesome how many of history’s best designers are working right now, today? Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela might have forsaken us for the cold, pedantic embrace of the art world, but Rick Owens, Miuccia Prada, Yohji Yamamoto, and Raf Simons are building history with their biannual collections. Sure, some legends are in their flop era, but many of our best thinkers are present and energized, not only with something to say but doing the most interesting work they’ve ever done. We are trained not to feel the monumentality of someone’s work until they are no longer alive. (We are in an obituary-forward era!) But it’s a joy to clock it in real time.
