At Couture: Jump Around?-------
Free-associate for a second on the word couture. Craftsmanship, elegance, luxury, red carpet, sure—but do you really think jumpsuit? Anne Valérie Hash and Riccardo Tisci did. We couldn’t help but notice, at fashion’s most glamorous week of the year, the seventies staple was given pride of place: Hash showed several versions of hers, from disco-ball glittery to Irina’s diaphanous printed version to a simpler black, while at Givenchy, Tisci sent out enameled wonders in royal blue and kelly green. Are there more to come? Remains to be seen. As does, of course, the question of whether couture’s haute-est buyers will take the plunge; if so, we should see some gonzo galas in 2010. Event planners, start your scrambling. Is Studio 54 available?
