So winter has decided she’s not quite ready
to hit the road, grey and glistening furs dripping
ice-thaw in her wake! One last cold snap has
popped us right in the jaw, but it brought lots
of rain- which we needed so desperately!
One last chance to flaunt the velvets,
the capes, the leather gloves and pink noses!
In honor of this one last chill, I simply must
expound ad infinitum about the most perfect
show this season, or really maybe ever..
I think that it is really so incredibly sweet and thoughtful
that John Galliano created a Fall/Winter Collection
just for me! Honestly- this is the stuff of my wildest dreams
and ancient ancestral memories made tangible,
and I’m swooning with covetousness.
I hate the cold so much, but I think that I could
learn to love it if I could only somehow acquire
this entire collection- I’d be crooning Sweet Home Siberia
and bundling up for life. Except, of course when
the occasion called for me to don one of those
diaphanous platinum frosted evening gowns!
I want every single piece- every stitch of embroidery,
every tarnished silvery sequin, every gold coin
and gigantic ovarian armour-plate!
Oh yes, and hello- giant platform pom-pom boots?
Wrap it all up, I’ll take it.
This reminds me so much of the costume we made for Miss Kaia
when she played the ghostly silent film star in the movie
we were working on in New Orleans..
I really must finish editing that someday!
The video of the whole show is really worth looking at as well
(but I’ve already gone overboard on this one, so track it down!)
the music, the tunnel- and the SNOW! Oh my stars, so sublime.
