I have been away from Vogue’s site for a while now. So yesterday, I typed up Vogue on Google, and saw among its listing ‘Spring 2019 Ready to Wear’, and so I clicked on it.
Among the lineup for the fashion Bible’s Spring 2019 Ready to Wear listing are Giambattista Vali, Miu Miu, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garçons, Thom Browne, Altuzzara and more.
While I am nodding to Altuzzara’ all yellow two piece skirt and jacket, and thinking the Hauz needs to see The Elder Statesman, Esteban Cortazar, A. P. C., and Yohji Yamamoto, I can’t help the ‘Oh God!’ going off in my head at the collections presented by Noir Kei Ninomiya, Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake and Thom Browne. Didn’t they get that it is to be a presentation of ready-to-wear collections?
While these collections may be considered expensive for many wardrobes and with an artsy, historical or inspirational story, some designs on the runway can be considered as impossible ready-to-wear material, not just in the streets of Enugu but many other places. Can’t we have, a ready-to-wear showcase and an arts inspired clothing showcase?
Because seriously, how’s this ready to wear?
