shut up? get over yourself
Not even sure why you thought this commentary was necessary.
Is it possible to feel both overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time? Because yeah, that’s how I’m feeling…

"I started to think ‘What is modern?’" explained Simons in his show notes. "It was an idea of confronting what people now think is an aesthetic that is modern - it felt more modern to go to the far past, not the ‘modernised’ look of the last decade." And in doing so he managed to make history look new and modern look old. Never have frock coats or tapestry cuffs and turn-ups looked so appealing, relevant and real.
So he borrowed - and sweetly added a “strict” accuracy disclaimer in the notes - from the Eighteenth century onwards for a collection that somehow managed to combine the French royal court with the uniforms of pilots and astronauts, school girls and skaters and make it all cool, all utterly desirable and leaving the audience, frankly, wanting more.
Court coats in bright cerise or marigold worn with skate shorts; bar jacket dresses punctuated with poppers instead of buttons on the hip; high Edwardian collars that could so easily drift into the realms of scuba wear; vest-top dresses that revived his full skirt and top combinations from his first couture season even; languid night dresses; leather-laced jackets belted on an empire line; flashes of rich embroidery here and there and just when you least expected. This was everything and more, and on paper probably shouldn’t have made sense. | via Vogue
