Couture For The Weary

Jul 8, 2009Fashion

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 great...but as designers sometime need a good ediotr, this whacky ensemble did not work. Period. Wha't with the jugs?

I was reading an artivel of how that couture is holdling its own since the designers are marketing to a wideer cglobal audience. Hmmm...you think he had India in mind here?

Nah. I think it's fierce to have a couture Burka. You'll be 2 snaps up in the desert.

Martim Margila should have just sat this seaosn out. Dior did a fabulous presentation with underthings but this is like retardo galore.

OK, you made a vest. Now can you get off the coutrue schedule. Period.

OK, so you made a vest. Now can you get off the couture schedule. Period.

Here, Margiela stole two of Lagerfields fans and sticked them together. Voila...couture...for idiots maybe.

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 Alexadre Matthie 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."

You see, it's all about...what is this? 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 Vauthiere also saw the Dior show and canned the bottom. That or he knos something we don't. It is said that the hemline gets shorter when the economy booms.

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 spearate invitation to the party for the shoulders.
