Fly a Kite Craig Green! Spring/Summer 2018

 😂👏🏻 I’m having a Margiela Spongebob SQUAREPANTS flashback thanks to Craig Green’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Frumpy rags and futuristic scarecrow clothesline alternatives remind us that while fashion can be art, fashion isnt modern art(s and crafts). Listen, put this in an art display and call it “Hanger Kites”…dont send it down the runway my little…

Charlotte Olympia Spring/Summer 2017

Charlotte Olympia Spring/Summer 2017 resorted to kitsch over stitch, an the most eye-catching looks were those fruit-tastrophes…this bitch is bananas, B.A.N.A.N.A.S. I’m confused by the costumes…although they’re just on time for some Fruit of the Loom Halloween costumes, and feel like the collection was a monotonous monochromatic presentation of lackluster “fashion,” or boring mall clothes,…

Fashion Comedy- Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear

Who lives in a pinapple under the sea? Sponge Bob SQUARE PANTS! Balenciaga has been playing with this horrid look, being proportionately challenged for years. I began this critique with the Before-and-After-Pants years ago, we then saw fabric-wrapped cardboard attached to the front of garments, and this boxy curious look seems to be their aesthetic…I’m…

The Bad: London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 LFW FW16

Every season and city has it’s highlights, but there are also the laughably bad, hideous, vulgar, out of touch designs I typically refer to as Fashion Comedy.  London Fashion Week has been full of hideous looks for SS16 and FW16.  Last season, I complained of not understanding the proportions, and wondering if it is in to…

Hobo Chic? CWST Men’s New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 NYFW FW16

CWST Men’s New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 presentation was a rollercoaster, with drastic ups and downs from one look to the next.  It was like a hobo went gramping (the old grampy version of glamping), and brought some blazers and cashmere the generous NY businessmen through his way, if only for warmth.  Some of…

Man FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 LFW

Man, a collaboration between Lulu Kennedy’s Fashion East and Topman, presented three collections, the first of which started out with some boring horrendous scary seventies looks, complete with perms and reverse-perms. Bell bottoms, velvet, light wash denim, and patches.  Designer Grace Wales Bonner showed some elevated looks, such as the silver embroidered shirt with tuxedo pants, but they were…

Craig Green FW16: Mad For Muslin LFW Spring/Summer 2016

Craig Green’s Fall/Winter 2016 London Men’s Fashion Week Collection seemed to be a hogwash mishmash of muslin, prisoner uniform meets Adams family meets fashion school rendition of Edward Scissorhands. I wish there was some major editing because it’s more costume than fashion, even when trying to imagine the pieces as separates…

The H&M Balmain Runway Show With Video

The H&M Balmain collaboration pieces range in price from $30-650.  I loved many of the looks, from the leather pants to those amazing vests and shirts: both the menswear and womenswear was on-point, and did evoke the Balmain aesthetic.  Bravo Olivier! Great jackets; boots I drooled over; faux furs; moto leather pants; the first jumpsuit I’d…

Chanel SS16

Chanel’s target market is that granny who was actually alive during the time of Coco Chanel…she’s seen the roaring 20’s and the movement of the hemline from the ankle…oh my, to the vagina in modern times, but though she swing danced and snorted Coke with Warhol, she prefers to keep her style strictly to that…
