And The Winner Is…Hermes…By A Nose

Hands down, Hermes wins my vote for best collection from World Fashion Week.

Hands down, Hermes wins my vote for best collection from World Fashion Week. Clean, elegant. Birkin bag...need I say more?

Has the parade passed us by? Is it over yet? Can we breathe? Can the dresses just stop careening down the runways now? Damn, World Fashion Week is endless. Thankfully they saved the best for last…and no, I do not mean Louis Vuitton. That shizz screams Emperor plenty. That, or, since he is so big in Japan, there is a touch of Harajuku sprinkled in the looks. Besides, LV is far more interested in the bags than the clothes. If you remember correctly, all the LV ensembles worn by the likes of Madonna, Lake Bell (zzz) and Leighton Meester ended up on my “Not Best Dressed List”. No, THE collection of the season, perhaps for the entire world,  is Hermes by Jean Paul Gaultier. Chic, chic, chic (at the risk of sounding like Elsa Klensch). Chanel was great too…don’t get me wrong…but I’m just feeling the elegant clean lines of Hermes a bit more.

Besides Hermes, I liked John Galiano.  Anyone who references Ye Olde Hollywood is my kind of designer, Elie Saab, Kenzo and Miu Miu. Because by now you all know how I feel about multi-city PR hogging, Miuccia Prada should stay in Milan. She should book-end Milan Fashion Week…period. Naturally, amongst all the fabulousness at the Paris shows there was plenty of nonsense. So, here you go…my mix of good and bad. See you next season. Or tomorrow. xoxo

Come on...she looks fierce trotting about the tennis courts.

Lovely John Galiano dress. He made up for the Christian Dior film noir fotz.

Lovely John Galiano dress. He continued his Hollywood influence (here with a dash of old Cecil Beaton photo) that also inspired his Christian Dior film noir tale.

The bad shoes just kept on coming. Prada had spring booties and her Marc Jabovcs had furry little bunny slippers which will look good on no body. And B) wait till you see how clean they will look after one walk with your dog...though your dog will think your shoes are his new chewy toy...so don't plan on having those things for long.

Which is probably a good thing.

So, when was the last time you ever heard anyone say, "This is a Wunderkind". How is this still happening? Not that it was all horrible..but seriously. Does anyone carry it in the US?

So, when was the last time (if ever) you ever heard anyone say, "This is a Wunderkind". How is this still happening? Not that it was all horrible..but seriously. Does anyone carry it in the U.S.? If so, why? Please advise.

Things I am over:

Bike shorts? Really? Aren't more Toddler Girl than Gossip Girl?

The half-assed prsentation such as Saccai (what? why?), Vionnet, Cerruti or especially Melanie Ward's new venture Blouson Noir. Fotz, or rather, fotzy balloons.
