Karl the Cadaver was clutching his new iPhone 6 at the close his Chanel fashion show, which can only mean one thing: it’s his new prop to lure fresh blood into his lair for frequent feedings! Zombies, they’re just like us when it comes to Apple products! No, I kid… Chanel’s show this season focused on feminism because, well, it’s the thing to do these days. If this was about true feminism, the models would strut down the catwalk with hairy legs and furry armpits. They’d also have no make-up. They would be wearing ‘comfortable’ shoes and wearing flannel. They’d also be roaming the aisles of Home Depot with the Indigo Girls playing in the background, not a Parisian street with dance music. In other words, it would’ve been a lesbo-hippie affair with fugly clothes! Well-played, Karl, well-played!

Wow… It’s really the end of an era. I remember first discovering Jean Paul Gaultier when I was still in high school during the mid -nineties …. Bjork (Debut), Madonna during her Blonde Ambition Tour and MTV’s House of Style days. I admired his ability to marry avant guard (without being too weird) with effortless Parisian chic. To me, he was and still is my most favorite designer, besides Chanel. I remember when Gaultier came out with his perfume line, I saved all my pennies from waitressing at a diner after school to purchase a corset- shaped bottle. It smelled divine! According to my oldest son, it smells like maple syrup and waffles… I still wear it everyday, 20 years later. So, when I see Gaultier is closing up shop for his ready-to-wear collection, it really breaks my heart. I bought my oldest son his first Gaultier shirt on our last trip to Paris- a striped French Navy shirt. So glad I did… All the accessories and clothes I bought from the Gaultier boutiques all have extra special meaning to them, now that there will never be another opportunity to buy them ever again. Will I ever be able to visit his stand alone boutiques again in Paris (behind the Tuileries) and Cannes? Probably not. Luckily, Gaultier will still churn out two collections a year of his brilliant couture work, but I feel like this is just the beginning of his permanent retirement. Above are photos from his final ready- to-wear show. Au Revoir, Monsieur….
