The Glamazon Theory For Spring 2009

Right now, in our fashion laboratory, we are working on a trend forecast to encapsulate the entire Spring 2009 season and, because the Paris shows run until Sunday, we just can't say much yet--let the Maison Martin Margiela example, at left, be your guide. We will say, also, that it pivots on the notion of the "glamazon" woman and all kinds of bombshell-personified characteristics. We're looking into the rise of the eight-inch platform, the passing of couturier Yves Saint Laurent, the commodification of Anna Wintour, and Rodarte, as potential causes of this new fashion identity. The Glamazon gal shows a lot of leg (sometimes just one at a time), comes in all shapes and sizes, wears nothing below a 6-inch heel, and knows how to stir up trouble. She is a hyper-feminine woman who is really, honestly, kind of terrifying (in an awesome way).
