British designer Louise Gray wowed us with her awesome fabric swatch technique. It’s like every swatch of fabric found in Jo-Ann‘s quilt section was in this collection. I think Louise just went in a fabric store and swiped all the samples for her personal use! Rude! Kidding, I want to like this collection because it is avant-garde, but not everything avant-garde is great. Case in point. I appreciate the effort, but it really looks too messy for my taste. Now, I’m wondering what happened to my Holly Hobby doll from my childhood. I’m gonna go look for it…

Vagrants and hobos were Vivienne Westwood’s inspiration for her Men’s collection. Mugatu is totally pissed about this. I mean, he was the pioneer in ‘Derelicte’ Chic. Seriously, Viv better recognize. Anyway, Vivienne must have the hook ups because that shopping cart works! Around where I’m from, the shopping cart’s wheels lock once you’re out of the supermarket parking lot! This way people can’t steal them and like put their laundry and chirruns in them. This also reminds me when I would wear a fur coat in the winter and sleep at the Port Authority because I would miss my bus back to RI. I would get ‘WTF?’ looks left and right. By the way, plastic bags are a no no.

Rei Kawakubo was in rare form this season by designing pieces  for Comme des Garçon that you can actually wear on the street and not be mistaken for a hobo. Honestly, Rei has surprised me with this collection. Granted, when you look above there is all sorts of fupeness, but if you take it piece by piece, you may be able to actually wear it in public! The veiled models walked with Geisha inspired candy colored hair. My favorite is the trompe l’oiel military jacket. It reminds me of the Moschino trench coat from Kill Bill worn by Daryl Hannah. The nude, gossamer fabrics are quite gorgeous, too. Although the plaid blanket is going the hobo way- fight it , Rei!… fight the hobo look….
