Designer Deathmatch: Chanel vs. Victoria’s Secret Edition

KARL'S ANGELS

Yesterday two Colosseum worthy fashion events took place – one in London, England; the other Salzberg, Austria. Now, I hate to pit two stylistically inclined contenders against one another, but the match up is just too perfect to ignore. In the picturesque hills of Salzberg, where visions of Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer come to mind, Karl Lagerfeld presented his latest Métiers d’Art show – and it was absolutely exquisite. Meanwhile, in bustling (emphasis on bust) London, Victoria’s Secret put on their annual extravaganza ripe with glitter, feathers, and ab envy that will last us until next year. The two collections could not be more different: one’s demure, the other flashy, but both are equally highly anticipated events, and surprisingly – the design inspiration was rather similar.

Objet D’Art

George Condo + Kim

 

With spring fast (FASTER PLEASE) approaching, one must take pause and ruminate on what interesting trends might soon flood the stylish sidewalks of Metropolitan cities.

Proof I’ve always been a dreamer: when I was in high school I somehow stumbled upon the The Misshapes website. I was totally obsessed and dreamed that I would one day make it there, to NYC, to party. It was (or at least it seemed to be) the absolute coolest ‘nightclub’ in the entire world. Every weekend they would throw a fête and take their amazing, signature Misshapes photos of each guest to post to their site (now compiled in a book). I was religious about checking the site after the weekend to scan through all the photos of the rad peeps and energetic atmosphere. They were polaroid-esque shots of stylish and interesting people/celebrities in front of a blank wall, or of the guest Dj (MADONNA!) or the wild dance floor. Lawd above, thinking back on it now I would have been in sheer bliss at one of these parties, tearing up the dance floor, and surely making a fool of myself, happy as a pig in mud. The parties were formed by a Dj collective consisting of Geordon Nicol, Greg Krelenstein, and one of my favourite style icons, Leigh Lezark. Continue reading
