When Silk Trunks Were A Trend In 2014, You’d Have To Go Back To The ’80s To See It On Sale
- by admin
Silk Trunkies have been around for more than 40 years, and while the fabric has been in use for more or less as long as the garment itself, the popularity of the trunks and the trend’s name may seem to be a product of a certain era.
But back in 2014, the trend was not just a thing of the past.
It had a name and an acronym.
And in this interview, Silk Trackers author and blogger Sarah Gannon shares some of the history behind the fabric’s history and how it’s still used today.
The silk trunks are still in use today.
Sarah Gannings interview.
Sarah’s interview with the designer, Yves Saint Laurent, is one of the best interviews in fashion history.
(H/t: Design Boom)”Silk trunks, in the early ’80’s, were a trend,” Gannon said.
“People who would go out to the suburbs in the summer would wear these silk trunkies.
It was the kind of stuff that was trendy, but it wasn’t the type of thing that was going to be worn by the typical suburban family.
It wasn’t going to fit the norm.
And that’s why people thought it was so cool.
It looked good, but the only thing that mattered was the look.”
And in the ’80 and early ’90s, the silk trimmer became a trend.
In the late ’90’s, the company’s first model was a silk trumbler that featured a silk scarf that was tied to a pair of socks.
Gannon’s favorite silk trimmings are the silk-cotton ones from the early to mid ’90 and the silk and linen trimmers from the late 2000s.
“I love the silk,” she said.
“The silk trunk is a classic silk trifle, but people like it because it looks pretty.
I love the look of it.
And I love that it’s a silk fabric, too.
It’s a really great fabric, I think.
And it has that silk quality that it could be a great scarf, too.”
And then there was the first silk-trunk collection, which sold out in the late-2000s.
But then came the Silk Trumps, which included trimmies from designers like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Gucci.
“The silk is really great,” Gannies said.
But the trend didn’t end there.
Silk trunks became a thing in the 90s, too, as a way to sell to women who were traveling and looking for more luxurious trimmances.
And then in 2007, the fashion designer Sophie Klein made her debut with the silk trunk.
But when Ganning first started researching her story, she knew that it would be the perfect interview for an interview on the SilkTrunkers.org website, a collection of essays that features interviews with designers and others.
Gannings began writing her first interview with Klein about the Silk trumblers in 2008, but she was not able to write a proper article for the site, so she began writing an article about her journey as a silktrimmer.
In 2012, the magazine published a special issue called Silk Trumblers that included interviews with fashion and design influencers and was featured on Vogue.
The Silk Trumbs website has been around since 2014.
“It’s hard to talk about a fashion trend when it’s not really about fashion,” Gatton said.
But Silk Trubs are still a very important part of the fabric.
“They’ve become a staple,” Ganny said.
When the trumps came out, Gannes said she had no idea what she was getting into.
“We didn’t know what the trend would be until we bought one,” she recalled.
But Gann has found it to be very fun and empowering to write about.
“It makes me happy when I see how many women are reading it,” she added.
“This is a great opportunity for people to be like, ‘I can’t wait to wear that.'”
