On the whole I love fashion although I’m more interested in the psychology of fashion and the aesthetic beauty of clothes than simply what’s in and what’s out and what some overexposed celebrity is wearing. But it has to be said, sometimes I despair at what designers expect us to wear. I know I don’t have to wear it but if everyone else wears it I do have to look at it. So I hereby present my top 5 ‘”Euwww, I’m not wearing that” list.
Number one: Chloe’s orthopaedic clown shoes.
Come on Paolo Melim Andersson you surely jest. This smacks of trying too hard and being ‘extra’ – ie shocking for the sake of it. Call me boring but I’m stubbornly sticking to my stack heeled boots.
Number two: Giles’ out-there knits
Am I the only one who doesn’t *get* Giles? I can see the boy has talent but he seems so hamfisted with all his collections. He clearly has ideas but I don’t think he executes them with finesse, he seems too keen to shock. I am really hating these comedy cardigans. They seem to serve no purpose other than to offend me. And what the hell is that poor girl wearing on her feet?
Number one: Prada’s entire collection
The plastic-y suits in vomit colours, the footless socks that flatter no-one and the teddy-fur outsize coats. Don’t even talk to me about the plastered-down hair! Emperor’s new clothes anyone?
