Cannabis Rolls Into Style
Cannabis isn’t all about smoking anymore. The fashion industry has become another outlet for marijuana, as designers include the infamous leaf in countless collections.
Mara Hoffman, an environmentally conscious and successful designer, used an
abundance of cannabis designs in her Fall 2015 collection. While moving in a softer direction, Hoffman showed her relaxed personality through pieces such as a white linen button-down paired with matching wide-leg culottes and a floor-sweeping terra-cotta-hued bandeau dress. In both pieces and through the collection, Hoffman tastefully included cannabis motifs which emphasized her free-spirit and her manta “Be light.
Two seasons later, for Fall 2016, Alexander Wang came out with a collection including his own take on Marijuana in fashion. Incorporating black and white cannabis motifs onto mohair minis and coats, as lace sets on boudoir dresses, and as print on miniature bucket bags, Wang exemplifies an absolute grunge look. Inspired by taboo, these pieces among the others on the runway perfectly demonstrate his notes on the collection: “deliberately opposes standard definitions of beauty and taste."
Cannabis has edged its way into fashion in more ways than one. Jacquie Aiche, an Egyptian American designer, uses marijuana in many of her collections. Her Sweet Leaf line, purely inspired by the plant, includes that well-known leaf in pavé diamond earrings, necklaces, rings as well as snakeskin clutches. Worn by famous fans, Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Bianca Barnhill, Aiche has successfully associated simplicity and grace with Cannabis.
Marijuana is trending and the fashion industry is staying ahead of the game. By using this delicate leaf, designers are able to generate impressive collections for their massive fan base.
