I loathe…

a combination of 90’s Courtney Love, festival fashion, Topshop archives, and “I just can’t” at Saint Laurent. Why is this even allowed?

when conceptual goes too far: Rick Owens Spring 2016.

the disconnect between Chanel’s airport-themed show and international air travel. If you looked like this and tried to board a plane, they would probably call security.

that Alexander Wang’s last collection for Balenciaga felt like the shoddy leftovers from one of his own brand’s collections.

    Ahaha!!! Agree 100% with everything you said, Balmain feels so fresh because of the new designer, he is so young but seems to get fashion so well. Tom Ford is absolutely sexy, and Lanvin is what I WOULD wear if I were a girl, totally!!! Chanel is wrong, yes – the jacket alone is adorable, but the matching combo scratches my retina. What’s wrong with LV and YSL these days, are they trying to prove something ?! Weren’t they originally once upon a time representing shapes of feminity and elegance ? About Rick Owens, you can find my opinion on my latest article, actually! (www.themetropoliteen.com) ; I’m not a fan of his latest collection – but he’s Rick Owens, he always does that. (Remember the Merkel ”thing” last season? :)) ) But I dislike how everybody makes stupid jokes about the collection which becomes viral without EVEN knowing who he is; But you’re entitled to an opinion, which not only do I respect, but agree with!

    Maybe you’d like to pop up on my blog. Is so, see you there! 😀
