This was the most unexciting fashion week in a while, and my new coverage (which amalgamated several shows into one blog post) meant I looked at more shows than I usually do. But I still felt depressed. Here’s why.
Whiel Christophe Lemaire’s final collection for Hermes could hardly be considered exciting, it was a very beautiful, simple, and luxurious show.
1. Nothing got me excited. There were some good shows, of course (Hermes springs to mind) but no one wowed me. Am I jaded? Am I getting bored of catwalk shows? Or do you agree that it was kind of lame…
Hard hitting news: Cara got a tattoo of the word bacon. #pathetic
2. There is more and more coverage, and less and less content. Some of the headlines I read where so uninteresting and useless. Just because it is fashion week doesn’t mean we have to read one hundred articles a day. Remember the old saying: quality, not quantity? The online publications inundate us with ongoing pointless fashion week coverage (street style, catwalk, front row, beauty, catwalk shoes, parties, fashion week routines, etc…) How about some interesting, insightful, fashion week commentary? Nope, we get ridiculous headlines like “Cara Delevingne Is in a Stable Relationship With Bacon” or “Anna Wintour Attended Giorgio Armani” – WHO CARES!
