Three’s a Trend: The Muppet Shows-------
Who doesn’t love a little fuzzy Muppet madness? During the Spring shows in Milan (which feel like ages ago, but were, in fact, last week), Fendi picked up where it left off for Fall and continued having lots of fun with fur. While last season it appeared as multicolored Mohawks atop models’ heads, this time around, Lagerfeld stuck bejeweled clips with wisps of violet, cobalt, lavender, or black fluff on models’ ears. It kind of looked like what might grow out of the ear canal of everyone’s favorite out-of-control, drumming puppet, Animal—if he were aging, and impossibly glam.
Meanwhile, today at Rochas, Marco Zanini sent crystal-embellished mules covered in mops of ostrich feathers down the runway—the yellow iterations brought Big Bird to mind. Moments later, at Gareth Pugh, a model stomped the catwalk in a flurry of purple ostrich plumes that enveloped her head and neck. Call us crazy, but we think this would look fantastic on Sam the Eagle (or even Mrs. Sam the Eagle?) should he want a sartorial update.
