Fashion and casino-inspired style go hand in hand. Playing card prints and designs have become an integral part of recent collections from brands such as Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana; Chanel even created its 2015 Casino-Luxe collection to channel casinos and car racing!
Without the budget to afford an Armani suit, it is still possible to evoke some of the glamour associated with casino nights out. Add seasonal flair with graphic tees and Jack sneakers or loafers from ASICS!
Playing card symbols
The Ace of Hearts symbolizes ambition and drive, making it a popular motif in business branding and logo design. Spades, Clubs, and Diamonds each hold special meaning – some people believe that these four suits symbolize seasons while others have observed correlations between cards and calendar years.
Casinos have long had an influence on fashion and style, yet in recent years their influence has waned considerably. Designers inspired by casino glamour have created more casual looks while showgirl styles have found their way into mainstream fashion.
Nearly seven years ago, fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld held a fashion show featuring a casino theme in Paris. Stars such as Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart donned cocktail dresses adorned with classic black and white hues that featured elements like roulette wheels, blackjack tables and poker games. After its success, Moschino launched its own casino-inspired collection featuring sequins and neon hues in 2017.
Symbols of wealth
Casino influence on fashion has long been visible on the runway, with celebs like Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart donning attire inspired by casino chic on film sets as well as in their personal appearances. Chanel even staged an entirely casino-inspired runway show at Paris Fashion Week 2015.
Symbols of wealth are universally recognized and convey a clear message of abundance and prosperity. Examples include money bags, gold bars and the dollar sign; cornucopia (horn of plenty) also represents wealth; while 8 is often linked with good luck in Chinese culture and feng shui.
Other symbols of wealth include the four-leaf clover, which represents luck and fortune across cultures, the maneki neko (lucky cat) or lucky animal with features from dragon, lion and horse bodies; it is said to bring good luck when kept as part of one’s home decor; while Lakshmi, an Indian goddess believed to be associated with financial success is often displayed to attract financial success in one’s home.
Colors of wealth
Colors associated with wealth have long been used by those seeking to attract money into their lives and manifest it. Feng shui practitioners use these colors as part of the ancient practice of balance and harmony; most commonly gold symbolizes riches while green symbolizes growth and healing – both are often featured on credit cards and money banknotes to signify wealth.
Casino culture and luxury fashion have long gone hand-in-hand, with high-end fashion houses using casinos as platforms to exhibit their designs. Casinos also provide ample inspiration, with their extravagant decor and neon lights providing designers with plenty of sources of creativity.
Casinos were once seen as exclusive clubs frequented only by society’s elite; dressing to impress was required in order to gain entry. This influence can still be found today with popular movies like James Bond featuring casino scenes that involve elegant suits and dresses as a requirement for entry.
The atmosphere of casinos
Casinos are an iconic symbol of luxury and glamour, so it comes as no surprise that they influence fashion trends. Many top designers have drawn inspiration from casinos in their collections – for instance Moschino led by Jeremy Scott recently hosted a casino-inspired runway show featuring suits with neon lights, pinup girl appliques and orange flames – including suits adorned with neon lighting effects and orange flames!
Casinos have had a profound effect on fashion through film. James Bond movies have immortalized the suave, elegant casino look as an aspirational lifestyle choice that many aspire to live.
Luxury fashion has long taken inspiration from casinos, and this trend looks set to continue into the future. New technology will enable garments that do more than simply look fashionable; for instance, adapting to an individual’s environment or monitoring vital signs – which could revolutionize fashion industry into an era with greater sustainability and sophistication. Branded clothing may remain popular as evidenced by an increase in branded t-shirts and dresses featuring casino logos.
