Azzedine Alaia Presents Couture Collection After Eight-Year Hiatus, Vogue Editors Banned (PHOTOS)

Commented Jul 11, 2011 at 16:32:56 in Style

“Anna Wintour has been gathering (green) moss but keeps the (wig) hair. OK ladies. If you like Alaia then buy his clothes. One short black mop cocktail dress worked...good for sitting on hard seat chairs or for long sitting at Party of the Year (Metropolitan Museum of Art) thingies at a table not worthy the price of the ticket. There must have been more clothes shown by Alaia than this...who is the editor that decides what should be photographed and presented to the public? But isn't that what this is all about...not what you see but what you don't see and that my friends is what fashion editors are all about. EDITING the bad...to be seen...and the good not to be seen. It's power baby! Power of the Fashion Press...just ask Bill Cunningham at the New York Times about sharks, barracuda in fashion. I can tell you about the pirhana! Alaia banned Anna Wintour....great move...but not far enough...ban all the fashion press. Invite only paying clients and store buyers! That is where the money is not in magazine colour photos.”

Iris Van Herpen: The Craziest Couture Show Of The Week? (PHOTOS)

Commented Jul 9, 2011 at 10:28:15 in Style

“What is shown in photos on this collection is not from a designer of clothing. In fact it blatently states that the designer has run out ideas and has substituted these gargoyles in the place of serious clothing designs. Dior has done similar with Gaytten piling up patches of fabrics to imitate clothes, popping cubes and balls with crazy coifs in bubble gum colours on their head. Grab anything at hand attach it to something goofy and send it out on the runway. They have lost it and the more the fashion editors grab it up and praise it the more they have to do it. Clothes basically are boring after stuff like this and Gaytten's Dior for women and men, so the runway becomes a battle ground for 'what/who can top this' and be so revolting and/or rediculous they will get some reaction and attention. Maybe haute couture will never get back to reality and the Daphny Guinnesses and Lady Gagas will become the only icons fashion editors will want to see.”

“This is Art Gallery flexible sculpture not "haute couture" clothing. It is genius in concept pliable construction to be worn. It is not it is only for shock without any redeeming value. To place it on the runway for Paris Fashion Week is clever but not intelligent. Lady Gaga might wear though she is not a fashion icon. Certain fashion magazine editors are pushing the envelope for her in this venue. They are wrong since the are mixing comedy and tragedy and presenting it as drama...Fashion cum Art. It is expected that a designer will include something extraordinary as a "piece de resistance" as an editorial marvel of construction and design and it serves the magazine editors well enough to publish. Balenciaga always did this. This doesn't mean a large percentage of the line is intended as an exhibition that baffles or boggles the mind. Hatue Couture during Paris week is a market for clothes and the real purpose is that they are reasonably designed and constructed for comfort, beauty and with some show stopping drama. There is a point to draw the line. To criticize this collection in that context is incorrect since it is in a realm of its own. It must be shown in context with other things like it and then it can be evaluated properly. Paris fashion designers seem to believe today they have to shock beyond the pale.”

John Galliano To Collaborate With Topshop? Update: No

Commented Jul 8, 2011 at 11:54:59 in Style

“Actually John Galliano should take a long break and vacation on a South Pacific Island if he isn't sent to Jail in Paris. One day he will be able to buy back his own label and design under John Galliano but in the meantime some time is needed for people to forgive and forget. An exhausted artist/designer making comments at Le Perle cafe in Paris is soon forgotten and in 20-30 years he can make a come-back when he has had a chance to develop his design-image. In the meantime his assistant at Dior is doing "Total Galliano" so Galliano would only now be copying his assistant. See you later Galligator!”

“If John Galliano is spared going to jail wouldn't it be better for him to take a long vacation on a private island somewhere in the Pacific? In a few years he can come back under his own label again once Bernard Arnault decides to un-incorporate it. People easily forget what an exhausted artist/designer says at La Perle cafe in Paris. Maybe this was just a wake-up call for Juan Galliano and a rest is what he needs now...afterall he is over 50 years old. Most fashion designers give it up at that age and maybe come back when they are 80 years old.”

“Way beyond the pale, the envelope pushed off the planet, can't top this, wonder about the mind behind the design, weird but true, believe it or not, what else is new? Well incredible fabrication. Wonderful for Science Fiction Horror movie costumes...can't wait to see people wearing this on the street in a Main Street town in Idaho, USA or the High Street in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, England. Great for walking in Charnoz, France. For women who do not want to attract men or men who want to try to pry the woman out of her shell. Great for Lobster in the shell and Octopus/Squid dinner parties. Just what the bride wanted to surprise her man at the alter. Looks perfect for the sculpture gallery or a retail store window. Will be great colour photos in Elle, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar....or Harper's Bizaar, Vanity Fair. Who can complain about this look? Double Dutch with a Parissian Twist. Genious went wild. The greatest show on record for Paris? ...or Amsterdam...The Amster "Dam" look for a long cruise in the Virgin Islands, Fiji, any South Pacific Island. Great as parachute jump suits into Kabul or Baghdad to cheer up the troops. let's go inter-galactic instead...perfect for romantic dinners on the Moon...Mars...Jupiter...Neptune...Venus...Mercury....let's not forget Pluto! OK...ENOUGH! CHEERS! 'WHO-EVER DESIGNED THIS BUNCH!' Really wearable and trendsetting. Comic Book female femme fatale archvillian? GREAT!....HELP...CAN'T STOP....SHUT THIS OFF QUICK!”

“Nobody (except for maybe Lady Gaga) is going to wear it. That's not the point. There's fantasy runway fashion and there's ready to wear. This is about letting your imagination as a designer go as far as it will go.

I think this stuff is brilliant and there's a great gig as a costume designer for sci fi and horror in her future, myself...”

“Of course the bottom line is you either love it or hate it..nothing in between. Whether this is the direction best for Dior remains to be seen. With Nostrodamus's prediction of the end of the world on 12/21/2012 this might be what everyone should wear as a final international carnival. I rather like it....a lot of invention...bright for resort...modern baroque... and ....it's a designer's designer's collection...who cares if anyone wears it... it is pure invention...tongue in cheek/fashion pun and only Dior could get away with it. Watch. It will sell! Maybe elegant, discrete, simplicity and dignified is the past. Maybe this is the future!”

“Galliano without Galliano? Look's like Galliano? New collection?...fine for some awful for most...little retro for the ladies and drugged out for the men. Where could you wear such clothes...to the cafe that Galliano made famous in Paris? So what kind of contract did Galliano sign that leaves him without ownership of his own name and fashion label? Maybe Dior should re-hire Galliano back. If this is the fashion look Arnault and Toledano want...the Galliano/not/Galliano/looks-like/but-isn't/Galliano/ then ...well pardon me...I suddenly feel sick at the stomach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and I haven't drunk any Galliano liquor (The famous Italian aperatif.)”

“Bernard Arnault has been grabbing at straws to replace Galliano. Unfortunately Galliano's defense was worse than his rant. Drugs was the fashion mix under Halston. The wrong mix with fashion design.. sex should be discrete. Arnault does not know what is right for Dior. His public relations for his LVHM fashion group is pressured by people like Anna Wintour. I don't like commenting on Wintour. Her mind set is not flexible due to her limited view of fashion. She will be part of fashion history. Not the most enviable one. Pressure at Dior is said is extreme. Dior needs a diplomatic designer who can bring dignity back to haute couture. The fashion media also needs to check in to rehap for drug and alcohol abuse. Dior is the one house that represents what is respectable and dignified and designers who are extreme in their lust for attention should be avoided. We can streamline Dior back, not too far back, to what is beautiful and not to the 'dark side' of fashion. I grew up knowing Dior. My first collection in 1966 was regarded as a new breakthrough in fashion design not seen since Dior's new look in 1947. I could control Dior's 'out of control pressure' simply because as executive designer I just would not allow it. That is the first step at Dior.”

“1960s fashion was well distributed by nationional identity. Vogue was an American magazine Not any more. French designers invaded NYC as did the Italians. NYC became a hodge podge of European designers. Only crass commercial fashion designers, Halston, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein survived. The British took over the fashion magazines Most designers in Paris died. Bernard Arnault created a monopoly to decide who could design where claiming only he can designate what is 'haute couture'. Anna Wintour blacklisted more designers than she supported. Lagerfeld distinguished himself as a James Bond villian with the look iof an S.S. Gestapo/cum fashionista. If haute couture is dead, then Paris self destructed. Wintour got lost in a fixed look. There is trouble at Dior and Galliano only the tip of the iceberg. Like Alexander McQueen is a bit over rated by aggressive British fashionistas. Americans are competent to be editors of American fashion magazines. All the foreign fashion designers should leave the US and go home. American Fashion could breath again. Or then an American fashion designer should be "head designer" of Dior. I have offered to take that position. Britain, France and Italy had their turn in the USA. It is time the USA profited in Europe!”
