The fashion world can definitely take themselves too seriously at times – especially when we’re talking fashion weeks. Four weeks per season where editors, buyers, designers, PR peeps, bloggers and models do the four cities – New York, London, Milan and Paris – in just over four weeks. Whew!
This week we started the last of the leg of the marathon month in jolie Paris, but I thought I’d do a little catwalk-recap of Milan. While looking through the hundreds of catwalk pics from Missoni to Marni there is one particular image that has been stuck on repeat in my memory … The Gucci Hairy Shoes! Was this a joke by newly promoted Creative Director, Alessandro Michele? I mean I know there have been complaints that Gucci hasn’t had a “point of view” but this is an interesting one to take – disruptive perhaps?
I do love the fact that perhaps there is a little laugh to be had – I certainly giggled at the thought of Paris’s fashpack cruising along Rue St Honoré with these furry horsebit loafers avoiding the crottes de chiens* along the pavements! (Bon courage!) *dog poop!
Here’s little photo montage of a few loves and laughs, from Missoni’s gorgeous chandelier earrings and Prada’s floral brooches to Roberto Cavalli’s curtain rail dress … have your say! Leave a comment, don’t be shy – I’d love to hear your thoughts.
