No, I’m not talking about that cobbler with a closet for a store that smells like feet and leather. I’m talking about Swedish fashion house Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair. They design pretty laid back clothes, but their couture collection, “By the No” (I have no idea what that means, I was lost at Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, but stay with me anyway) is pretty cool. My favorite is the brown leather corset with the tumor on the hip. It looks like The Elephant Man meets Steampunk. It could also pass for those padded monstrosities by Rei Kawakubo. In any case, I like Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, however, I still have no idea where they got their name. If you know, please let me know because it’s the kind of stuff that I lose sleep over. Like it runs through my mind until I fall asleep. I need HELP! Solve this mystery for me!

United Nude and Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen have teamed up for these unusual shoes that sort of remind me of those Alexander McQueen shoes that look like lobster claws. They match her Fall 2010 collection of dresses made of looped fringe and what looks to be metallic leather. Don’t quote me on that. Actually never quote me anything because I tend to pull things out of my ass- *mental note*. Anyway, I really like the photography. So futuristic, so mysterious, so….. blurred. Having said that I’ll take one to wear at a Bon Jovi concert, if I ever end up going to one.

For me, Valentino always seemed to be clothes for a lady of a certain age, but this collection proved that wrong. Dainty and feminine, each dress was beautiful and elegant with a touch of avant guard- just the way I like it. My favorites have to be the birdcage dress and the fourth dress. Of course, bows make it all irresistible! I think that birdcage dress is perfect for people with the mysterious case of the ‘sticky fingers’. That has Winona Ryder written all over it, also any toddler.

German designerPatrick Mohr vomited out another collection worthy of the ‘WTF?’ label. I mean, this is pretty minimalistic compared to his last show. He might as well had his model call at the meth clinic next to the Port Authority on 8th Ave. Seriously, I’ve come across folks looking like this in the wee hours of the night on a Bonanza bus headed north. Usually, they start talking to themselves and then it becomes a one-man show like , The Vagina Monologues. Entertaining, actually. Anywho-(ha), I’m trying to focus on the clothes and not the makeup and it still spells F.U.G to me. Whoever’s financing this dude must be blind.

Already a few blogs, including James St. James, has called Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall 2010 show ‘frumpy’. I totally agree. It’s awkward, dowdy and to put plainly, FUG. The only outfit that has a chance with me is the last photo of the blue and gold dress, although even that looks like a table runner at Z Gallerie. I’m a little disappointed in Karl the Kaiser. 😦 However, he does have like 19,684,849 collections a year and one them is bound to fail. I forgive him as long as he promises for Calgon to take him away. At least the runway was fantastic. I wonder how many minions it took to make that massive lion and pearl!

Sretsis‘s Fall 2010 collection was completely inspired by the porcelain figurine manufacturer, Lladro. Lladro usually is one of those dust collectors sitting on the mantle of your crazy Aunt Lovey’s sitting room. She makes everyone look at the Lladro figurines instead of Jerry Springer during afternoon tea. She may have more than 3 cats and still has plastic on her furniture. Actually, this could be me. Let’s change the subject. Anyway, I’m really digging the moosh muffin kitties in this spread! So fluufffeeyyyy! And I can’t hate on the hair bow and icy blue hair. I’m still more excited about the cats! Viva les Chats!

Mr. Marmar is hissed he didn’t get a callback.

Where's my callback, b*tch?

Karishma Shahani’s Fall 2010 collection is wonderfully colorful and with beautiful tribal accents of layering. This is something I would wear! It sort of reminds me of a cross between Jean Paul Gaultier, Fam Irvoll and George Clinton (?). Anyway, it is always lovely to see someone use color like this! I think my favorite is the multi-colored fur boots- it’s like a Montana mountain hooker’s boots on acid. By the way, that model is trying so hard to not think of her monobrow. I don’t blame her.
