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!

Comme Des Garçon – Spring 2015- In the Red…

CDG_0037 CDG_0085 CDG_0105 CDG_0127 CDG_0159 CDG_0247 CDG_0267 CDG_0297 CDG_0327 CDG_0595

Usually Comme des Garcon is all about the deep, dark, depressed look of black… but this season, a splash of color- mostly the devil’s favorite hue- took over! Hip hip hurray! And it’s one effed up look after another! Hip hip hurray! I would say these look like something that my 9 year old would’ve crafted, but after looking at them it’s more like something my pre-schooler would’ve crafted. Anywho, all I can think of is ‘Red Rum’ in a toddler voice.

What a gorgeous collection! I love the tutus, especially. It was part woodland creatures and part and part ballerina! Very ethereal… and YES YES YES to the cherry handbag and faux bois skirt! I guess I should start foraging for feathers for my next outfit… watch out birds- who-squawk-outside-my-window-at-5 am! I’m gonna keep Undercover under my radar!

Jean Paul Gaultier- Spring 2015- Au Revoir, Maestro….

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….

It’s crafting time! This time, we can use colorful shower curtains just like Junya Wantanabe! These are pretty awesome and I’m sure would be a hit with Club Kids everywhere… I love the colors and the circles… so simple, so chic, so pre-school. Hurray for Junya!

PS- Do you think I can get away with throwing a plastic hair do on my head on bad hair days??
