I love seeing Tarot and Mysticism creep into mainstream culture. I know a lot of people who would say this is a "watering down" of the esoteric.
One could argue that the capitalisation of the spiritual creates a conflict but I think it acts as bridge. There are many who are intimidated by the deeper practices such as the Occult. Fear often breeds contempt and leads to misrepresentation of the practises and tools.
I think when a labels like Alice + Olivia feature something like the Tarot in next seasons line, something beautiful starts to happen. It is almost like people are given permission to accept things that may have been outside their sphere. It makes having a Tarot reading On Trend. I see only a win win here with the thought of people gaining a bit of spiritual direction, Perhaps they might even buy a deck and try to learn.
There is a new wave of spirituality they are calling Mysticore. it s a hybrid of New Age and Occult with a dash of your favourite teen witch. I think it shows an awakening and gravitation towards the spiritual. Souls are seeking as we are all being called to do the bigger work in this world. If your entry point to a deeper spiritual life comes on the wings of couture the so be it. And besides.....I'm totally coveting that bag.
