It’s over…and the fat lady sang. (Beth Ditto at Jean Paul Gaultier.) As World Fashion Week came to a close in Paris, the question is, “Who wins the I Mean…What?!? Best Collection Spring ’11. It is a toss up between a few designers that seem to be hell bent on showing conceptual nonsense or what I call Pre-Halloween. It is astonishing that companies like Wunderkind (whose name seems to be from a time gone by) and Maison Martin Margiela (ditto) even bother to spend whatever dollars to show pieces that are preposterous, unnecessary and frankly an insult to injury….as in, it hurts my eyes to look at some of that crap, hence, I am insulted. Needless to say, Pierre Cardin crawled out from under a rock (made of licensing money) in an attempt to reclaim his position as fashion maverick. That went over like a lead balloon…a lead fotzy balloon that is.
Pierre Cardin Wins Hands Down
