It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, And We Feel Fine
According to the Mayan calendar, tomorrow, December 21, is doomsday. While most of us here at Style.com don’t quite buy into the whole apocalypse now theory, we did put some deep thought into what we’d wear for our final day on Earth. The general consensus among our staffers: If we’ve got to go, we’re going to go out with a bang. Market director Marina Larroudé says she’d like to be one of Peter Dundas’ carefree party girls for one last night in an Emilio Pucci minidress from Spring ’11. Others went for more avant-garde closing statements, like Rick Owens leathers straight out of Mad Max or the crystal-encrusted face masks from the Maison Martin Margiela Couture show in July. Leave it to the boys to think practically. Deputy editor Matthew Schneier selected a weatherproof Louis Vuitton ensemble complete with a utility backpack for survival essentials, while Tim Blanks opted for an Alexander McQueen gas mask (and its matching pink boiler suit).
