L to R: Chloe and Stella McCartney
Haven’t you seen these in Pratunam before? Or Chatuchak? Or at some outlet shop in MBK?
If your answer is in the affirmative, then you may be shocked to learn that these were shown recently at the Paris Pret-A-Porter Spring/Summer 2010.
It’s understandable that the economic downturn is blamed for designers churning out consumer-friendly clothes, but it defies comprehension to see on stage those that looked like there were picked from a bin in some dingy shop from Hong Kong’s Temple Street. When clothes have nothing to articulate, they have no reason to grace a catwalk. Women may need a dungaree-dress to go to the tarlat, but they do not need to pick their choice from a Paris fashion show.
Just look at this couple from 2001, when they were an item. You’d think that this his-and-hers approach to dressing is best left for bathrobes, but Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, appearing at the American Music Awards, thought it was swell to come as promoters of some jean manufacturer’s cutting floor.
With denims like these, who can blame you for feeling blue?
