>> I watched the slideshow, watched the runway video, watched the slideshow again, and I just can't do it. I thought maybe repetition would expose some ideal that I was missing the first couple run-throughs, but it just didn't happen. I just can't bring myself to like the new Chloe collection (Pheebs, you're killing me here.)
The collection was inspired by Miss Philo's research into 1960's "old lady chic." She even christened the new bags with names like Marge, Edith, Gladys. It was an experiment in "volume, something new," she said. Well, the lines were definitely forgiving, with oversized tops and dresses everywhere. Lots of white, with a smidgen of color. Lots of frills... I know I sound bored, but really, I am. There is exactly one outfit that I can live with from this collection -- and even it's not that great (above). There are these platform mary janes, however, that I could definitely make some good use of. They win the best-of-collection gold star (it was a tough win, this time around, believe you me).
You can view the rest of the collection here -- or you could just use your time to do something more constructive. When you're placed in a nursing home, you can look around at what Marge, Edith, Gladys, and Myrtle are wearing... and get the same effect.
