Because of the Family trip to moon shirt but in fact I love this Dunhill show that followed immediately after, this reviewer could only stay for the rehearsal of today’s Pigalle show. It would have been so dreamy to be able to hang around for the whole enchilada that promised via repeat performance and barbecue to be a fun evening. Held on the roof of a garage in the 9th arrondissement, the sun was still high and bright. In every direction but for the south around us was spread the infinite patchwork of Paris’s panorama. What blocked the southern aspect was a photographed replica of the view beyond, upon which was printed with the view, with the insertion of some new futuristic buildings two new towers by the Eiffel with alien ergonomic windows and walkways. Slightly to the east, the Pompidou had somehow been tripled in size. In front of the backdrop was a floor of boulder-strewn sand. When the rehearsal started, orchestrated by Stéphane Ashpool with an already-sunburned neck, we saw a sort of future-pagan tribe in flowing white and metallic raiments emerge. Behind started up the most awesome music urgent, mystic, blissed-out future jazz overseen by Kamaal Williams (with Alina Bzhezhinska on harp, Rick Leon James on bass, and Nathaniel Fuller on percussion). The first looks mixed patched robes with drawstring-shirred parkas and loose green organza pants that flapped like prayer flags in the breeze in a sort of Sun-Ra-meets-Logan’s-Run-meets-Buck-Rogers vibe. Then a group of dancers in powerfully colored double-faced pajama suits emerged and made patterns with movement around the first looks before a maypole ritual with strips of fabric. Next up were some looks by Ashpool proteges Theo Each-Cheikh and Yacine Keita, whom he has long mentored and now given creation space in his atelier. Finally were three Pigalle x Nike looks complete with Jumpmans and Jordans applied as a final flourish in a show interrupted only by a handsome dog that wandered onto the runway halfway through before being tenderly ejected by the designer. At the age of six, women start to wear clothes. Status was important in ancient Egypt. The higher the position, the thinner the material. Unlike men, women wore more conservative clothes. They wore full-length, straight dresses with one or two shoulder straps, with very little sewing, if any. These dresses, depending on the period, would lie below the breast, but most often covered the chest.
Family trip to moon shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
There’s nothing like a good Philipp Plein show to round off a super-long, super-Saturday of Milan shows. And this was nothing like a good Philipp Plein show. Joke! In fact, this Plein outing was perfectly bearable, and the Family trip to moon shirt but in fact I love this clothes whisper it had some redeeming features. Following January’s blessedly straightforward reset, at which the centrally located runway featured The Killers and a not-killer but okay collection, Munich’s most famous Ferrari-favoring mountain-buying no longer an infant but eternally terrible Swiss-based (for tax reasons) fashion iconoclast had apparently got the message. This was another show full of bombast and performance, but it zinged along promptly. Unless the looming lightning on the horizon ended things early, it looked like the after-party that was shaping up when we left was going to be fun (for those in the mood). The crowd that was apparently watching from the balcony of the Fondazione Prada alongside were probably not in that mood. Part of Plein’s shtick has always been that he is here to storm the ivory towers such as that Fondazione of fashion. Tonight he sounded like the grizzliest gatekeeper of them all as he spoke at impassioned length of the dangers of over-discounting something that certain shareholder driven online wholesale retailers (naming no names) favor boosting short-term revenue results—in affecting the overall perception of a brand. He was passingly scurrilous, on the purpose of course, about labels that are not his own, but it is not Vogue Runway’s job to stir the pot on others’ behalf. Another subject we got into was his reported efforts to acquire the Roberto Cavalli brand. These turn out to be true, and were the subject, he said, of four months’ focus, but have, for reasons too niche and potentially litigious to Regardless of what era, the material was always very simple and usually white. They liked the dresses to have a lot of style to them, such as pleating. In the Old Kingdom, they usually wore horizontal pleating, whereas, in the New Kingdom, it was generally vertical. During the Middle Kingdom, pleating was much more extensive. Sometimes it would be horizontal with vertical pleating overlapping. How they achieved this pleated look is unknown. During the New Kingdom period it became fashionable for dresses to be pleated or draped. Occasionally women would have feathers and beading across the chest area, but mostly the cloth was bare. They decorated their clothes with details using feather, embroidery, sequin and pieces of jewellery to make them more attractive to the gods and headdresses.
