You know I have a thing against pre-season fashion shows. Meaning I don’t keep the fashion shows up to presenting date because I think it’s amoral. Because I don’t want to think about summer when it’s snowing and I don’t want to go boots hunting when I’m wearing bikini.
I may have been in minority until now because the big names of fashion are getting tired of this pre-season madness. And by that I guess you know what I mean – Stefano Gabbana’s recent declarations:
“I don’t want cherries or strawberries at Christmas anymore. I want to eat, dress and live on time. I think we all need to sit back and ponder over this anxiety we all have of constantly needing to anticipate,”
This may seem plain utopia to most fashion makers who need the stylist’s cahier to work the upcoming collection, but to the average fashion consumers it’s order in chaos. I love being au courant with every fashion news avant anyone else, but is it really fun to know every detail of those summer collections when you’re getting ready for a snow fight? (via wwd)
