“Fashion week is the annual week when the fashion community get together to play a huge practical joke on women.” -Jimmy Kimmel.
We’re almost at the end of Paris Fashion week, the last of the major fashion capitals (New York, London, Paris and Milan) to show their Spring 2014 collections, which is a shame because where else are we going to get so much comedic value?
We present you with 11 things from Fashion Week that only fashion people will understand.
1. Rhinestone-encrusted visors.
Safe to say only people with more money than sense will be snapping this one up.
Marni Spring ’14
2. Eye hats
Anyone else getting a Fat Albert & the Cosby Kids flashback?
Ashley Isham, Spring ’14
Hilariously enough this isn’t even the first time eye hats have been in fashion:
Vintage Straw Hat, Libelle (Dutch) May 1965
3. Tinsel dresses.
Consider your Christmas Party outfit sorted.
Dolce & Gabbana Spring ’14
4. Sheer panels where you would never want sheer panels.
Bikini wax mandatory.
5. Giant sleeves.
“I like your sleeves, they’re real big.”
6. Jellyfish hats.
And just everything that’s happening here.
7. Lace up boots that would take a year to lace up.
But then again, fashion has never been about comfort.
One definitely flew over the cuckoo’s nest.
Thom Browne Spring 2014
9. Manicures that look like crap.
Good news, that chipped nail polish you can’t be bothered to take off will be ‘in’ for Spring.
JINsoon Nails for Tess Giberson Spring ’14
10. Honeycomb clothing.
This is not technically from this year’s Milan fashion show but a worthy addition to the list.
