Blasblog From Paris: Morning Fashion Show Or Walk of Shame?


Sunday morning was a dreary, drizzly one, which made the fact that no one could get into the venue for Karl Lagerfeld‘s show even more irritating for some of the guests. “Do you really think an umbrella goes with this outfit?” one English fashion editor asked. “I didn’t come all the way to Paris for English weather either.” Beyond the sprinkling of rain, however, several other well-heeled young ladies were afraid of what roaming around the Tuileries in their fancy fashion frocks might look like. Would people think they were here for a fashion show, or would the sight all these ladies in high heels, short skirts, and leather jackets look more like a late-morning walk of shame? “I know it sounds like I’m a pushy fashion person right now, but I really want to get in the show,” an American buyer told me. “But I’m more concerned that all these people think I’m a hooker. Who else would wear these boots at 10 a.m.?”

    I told it already years ago Lagerfeld is passé. The only thing he can do now is to shock people. Not only to show “his” collection early in the morning but also what models have to wear as shoewear. It seems to me that it will be more and more ridiculous what they do to the models. next year a lot of models felt down at a show of Miuccia, this year it’s almost becoming a hype. I don’t like this. Models are also worthy people and it’s hurting them very bad when they ‘GO Down’ on a runway. What concerns your though about hookers, I think that you made a joke, because at that time hookers are laying in bed. But never forget fashion is a wonderful but also a hard world. and some designers make it harder then is necessary. Arriverderci

    You know Derek I don’t know why a lot of people are so fond of ‘Der Kaiser’ better know as Karl Lagerfeld. I think two seasons ago he had a splendid RTW collection, but now it is the same as the last decades he designed for Chanel, Fendi and also for his own label/brand. Actually he disappoint me all the time the last couple of years, and if he is wise he would quit with this industry, just like Valentino and others did. I see him still as a topdesigner but he has to know his boundaries. Otherwise he would make a clown of himself, that’s my humble opinion. Arriverderci Derek I found it a good article/posting, Grazie
