Out of Fashion

London echoes New York in bemoaning what its Fashion Week (and other events) have become dominated by

 

Earlier this month, the New York Post’s Raquel Laneri reported that New York Fashion Week had become “a bit stilted, passé… corporate and creatively hollow… a pain in the ass”. She referenced fashion grandees as now being of the view that “it feels more like a game show or a reality show” and suggested the majority of attendees are just super-connected publicists and bloggers.

 

Out of Fashion - London and New York Fashion Weeks have become dominated by "The Smug Club"
There is no room for anyone other than Alexa Chung and her over-hyped cronies at London Fashion Week

 

In London, similarly Fashion Week is simply the preserve of ‘The Smug Club’ headed by Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe and their equally vacuous coterie. The Evening Standard best illustrated this last week when they went as far as to reference Chung as “fabulous” and a “British icon” despite her being just 32 years old. Elsewhere, the “It Girl” also found time to “take over Vogue’s Snapchat for London Fashion Week” (which she accomplished in her usual “me, me, me” manner) whilst David and Victoria Beckham’s 16-year old son, Brooklyn, was commissioned to conduct a photoshoot for Burberry.

 

The acreage devoted to these “front row fixtures” is ridiculous in view of the fact that they’re only where they are because of who and not what they know. It is time the media gave space to some real talent and it is time Alexa Chung took a back seat.

    1. Alexa Chung is about as far up the sorry ass of Evgeny Lebedev as anyone could be. He is the making of her and without him she’d be zilch.

    2. I have just tweeted something a propos this topic! I watched a Netflix film, ‘Advanced Style’, about people who know the real value of style over fashion, per se. Vogue/Wintour/et al are, in comparison, just corporate fashion zombies, in search of the money and that’s all.

    3. You and the bottom faced Rod are doubtless one and the same. I don’t wish to appear snobbish, but why would two such witless peasants as you two wish to inflict yourselves on people of taste. Aren’t there some lower activities you can engage in? Football or bingo?

    4. I sent Miss Chung Rod’s Facebook picture with his comment on her sexuality. Her reply was quite astringent: she said “what can from expect from an arsehole with a face like a backside.” Cruel, but to the point.

    5. Well Rod is right, she is hot, I would like to bath her [EDITED FOR REASONS OF GOOD TASTE]….. Sorry day dreaming again. As for you Peter, get off your high horse mate and relax, Rod can can day dream like the the rest of us. The only difference is, he says it how it is, unlike you that peeps through curtains.
