Fashion Show

It's a known fact that Christian Lacroix is so joyfully theatrical and fantastical, his references so wide-ranging, his designs so loopily impractical, that he's almost impossible to parody. In this show, he appeared to refrerence everything from 80's Dior to Pucci to Goya and back. It's fashion as art, yes indeedy, but I did wonder what from the runway you could get away with wearing...and not look like Edina Monsoon. My numerical judgments of collection highlights, beginning below.

Not huge LaCroix fan as a general rule but this collection isn't as awful as some of his others. He's gone a little nutty with intentionally ridiculous ornamentation— certainly not traditional, but not structured or interesting/thoughtful enough to make me think 'Well what an interesting new take on the bow'.

... ... oh Christ in heaven I pay too much obnoxious attention to this stuff. Can't help it. Love fashion.
