In Day 2 of the Paris Couture shows, there was definitely more hits than misses with Chanel, Armani Prive and Christian Lacroix showing stunning collections. For people like me, it was slim pickin’s. But as always, one can find horrendosity amongst the flowers, crap alongside elegance, preposterous within reach of fantastic, as in the case of Givenchy. From there we segue into Maison Martin Margiela then onto the two Alexandres.
For the most part, Givenchy was really good...but as designers sometime need a good editor, this wacky ensemble needed something, like rethinking. It does not work. Period. And what's with the jugs?
I was reading an article about how couture is holding its own in this economy. Designers are marketing to a wider global audience. Hmmm...you think Givenchy has India in mind here?
I think it's fierce to have a couture Burka by Givenchy. You'll be 2 snaps up in the desert.
Maison Martin Margiela should have just sat this season out. Dior did a fabulous presentation with underthings but this is like retardo galore. Diesel brought nothing new to this house...on the contrary.
OK, so you made a vest. Now can you get off the couture schedule. Period.
Here, Margiela stole two of Lagerfeld's fans and stitched them together. Voila...couture...for idiots maybe. And next time put some make-up on the model's thighs.
Here Margiela uses those silly snakes in a can to piece together this couture...what the f&#k is this?
And since you wanted it in a grey story, here it is. What's next, a silly string gown to match? Actually...
I guess Alexandre Matthieu got the no bottoms memo. That, or he saw the images from the Dior show and said, "OK, show it without the skirt. They are doing it now."
OK, I give in. I will wear this to the next CFDA event and win The Not Quite Best Dressed Award or The Not Quite Dressed Award.
Alexandre Vauthier also saw the Dior show and canned the bottom. That or he knows something we don't. It is said that the hemline gets shorter when the economy booms.
Here the dress is micro mini again, but you need a separate invitation to the party for those shoulders. And please, make-up on the thighs.
