From euphoric new year’s resolutions back to reality. Because famously, things won’ t  really  go  according the  plan  anyway. However, this doesn’t implement something  negative straightaway. Sometimes, it’s even refreshing to know that planning every single minute is not even necessary. Whether it concerns the year 2019 calendar or a daily routine. Therefore, CARMITIVE dedicates this month’s topics different kinds of coincidences – with all its benefits, pitfalls and especially with a regard to its meaning in fashion.

“A remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.“ Apparently, the definition of Oxford Dictionary explains the meaning of a coincidence pretty well. It also clarifies why it can be intimidating at times. In general,  people are  seeking  for an  explanation  for  every situation – whether it is a complex issue or a simple  everyday problem. If we fail, we feel uncomfortable. Just ask yourself, have you really met your boyfriend or best friend by coincidence? No matter how many “what  ifs“ are  added, there will never be  a definite  answer. So it might be easier to say „it was a coincidence“ or maybe „fate has decided like this“. 

According to the US mathematician and philosopher Gregory Chaitin, there is no prove that coincidences  really exist. However, it is possible to let things take their natural course. This in turn, the British fashion designer Alexander McQueen proved at his fashion  show for the spring/summer 1999 collection. Within two minutes, the white dress No. 13, worn by  model Shalom Harlow, was sprayed with neon green and black colors by two robots. At  the end of the show, the dress resembled a piece  of artwork, which could only arise with the power of coincidences. So in the upcoming month, we will go into more varied  examples when it comes to the current fashion cycle with all its planned and random emerging trends, as well as in the world of music and in terms of social topics. 

Let’s ask yourself, was it a coincidence that you just read this post? Who knows. 🙂 Either way, we wish you a great start into the new year and only the best for all your goals of 2019!
