Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009: Better

29 January 2009, 16.58 | Posted in Couture, Fashion | No comments »

Who doesn’t love Jean Paul the man? Still, the nagging sense that’s he’s struggled over the years to recreate the magic of the 90s remains. No doubt this issue is in part connected to cash, which is critical to building a brand’s coolness cache . My guess is that Jean Paul doesn’t have as much of it as some of the other titans of the business.  Alas, life is anything but fair. That being said, his latest collection was lovely to look at…

Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Insane Earrings

Judging from Chris’s Spring 2009 collection, the dude not only has hope (see lack of said hope in previous post on Chanel), but balls the size of Jupiter. If the ship goes down, he’s gonna be the last one standing on the very tippy top of the mast singing his lungs out in something bright and sparkly.
Beyonce saw these and was like, "Daddy, I need to have those--immediatamente!"

Chanel Spring 2009: Cheez Karl!

28 January 2009, 18.56 | Posted in Couture, Fashion | No comments »

Chanel gave a funeral for its Spring 2009 collection and every one wore white. Karl must have been in a matchy matchy mood ’cause the models were all white, too. Well, a few wore black or black and white, but you get the picture.

Beautifully executed of course, but we expect more from you, Karl.

When Karl designed this collection no doubt news of massive layoffs at the company were swirling all around him so I can understand the lack of  life, but damn this is supposed to be a year of hope! Like Harvey Milk in the movie says, “Without hope, life is not worth living. You gotta give ‘em hope. You gotta give ‘em hope.”
