LAST WEEK’S Runway Shows………

What was the year……1918 OR 2018



These Casino de Paris vintage post cards seem to have been the inspiration for many of the designers.

Comme des Garçons.………in it’s Italian Runway Show….their designer Rei Kawakubo has taken “CAMP” to a whole new level.  I know not what to say.  I like some of the pieces and a few parcels………….but ???

Thanks to Kim Weston Arnold for the use of these photos.

VERONICA ETRO……..Runway in Milan…..my fave of all the fall collections

I love the expression “Little Bauhaus on the Prairie”.  Earthy….dizzying……paisley…….Navajo Indian……Peruvian……lots of embroidery……..knits…….boho………fringes…….

I COULD GO ON AND ON and ON……… WITH PRAISE.

Lots of MEMPHIS too.  All I can do is shake my head……..it is all so fantastic.

I wish I could have worked with her on this collection.

My thanks to Luca Tombolini for these fantastic photos

Central Saint Martins’ King’s Cross LONDON

The students at KING’S CROSS campus in London………show off their personal style during FASHION WEEK.

Their motto is “throw it all on honey and see what happens.  The guys wear women’s clothes and the women have fun with men’s clothes.

“BOTTOMS UP honey!

I mean, your lips HAVE TO MATCH your leathers.

 

Ya gotta love this duo.  I do!

ASHISH GUPTA……and his Runway Show……Feb 2018

MASTURBATE??  How often??  That could be the theme of Ashish’s new clothing line.  This is a thoughtless dig at American consumerism.

 

Tho I do find some of these designs lovely…I love all the Christmas Tinsel……..just like our Christmas trees.  Spot on!

But…it is the excess of American dollars that he needs……to buy his clothes.

Thanks to Kim WestonArnold for these photos.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK……….the streets are littered with FUR

FASHION WEEK..………….and the FURS come out of hiding………faux and otherwise……….the streets of New York are alive with dead animals.  Who said “furs are out”???  Maybe……but not in New York.

MARC JACOBS RUNWAY SHOW FALL 2018

 

MARC JACOBS runway show…….a “Run – a –  Way” hit at the Armory……..[which was in total blackness]……….and suddenly this MAGENTA MADNESS hit the runway.

 Yes, all of my friends know that MAGENTA is my favorite color.

Shoulders so wide………she may not even get thru a door.

Thick heavy fabrics……….a real departure from what is currently out there.

With anticipation I await the FALL season when these clothes will show up on the streets of NY.

Thanks to Jannis Viamos for these photos.
