Lacoste Fall 2008 Fashion Show, 2/2/08
Posts for February 2nd 2008
Alright kiddos, it's day two. That means everyone's kept their cool for 24 hours and are about to go bonkers. People are rubbing their eyes, Bawls are being consumed at above average rates. Even the outfits are getting a bit stranger. Not that we can't appreciate a good sense of humor and a healthy dose of yellow mohair. Hay ho, we most definitely can.

The steamy, seedy Roseland Ballroom provided rich dark inspiration. Money, power, and personality peppered the show with highs and lows. In this blurred new fashion world Baby Phat is our emblem.
Right before fashion week, we visited Erin Fetherston to discuss with her the A/W 08 collection. The collection, inspired by Juliet, was atmospherically dark and romantic, it seemed align with Fetherston's whimsical aesthetic though sultry in a way that was advanced. She showed us the rich jewel tones, printed florals, and classical imagery which inspired the collection, but nothing, naturally, compares with seeing it on the runway. With our pre-fashion week video, here's a taste of what goes into pulling together a collection and preparing for the big show.

>> I've seen my fair share of random designer collaborations: Christian Lacroix for Evian, anyone? But today, instead of giving out shampoo or makeup samples to the guests like everyone else, Max Azria gifted his crowd at BCBG each with a branded box of mints.
Which, of course, begs the question: Does Max think fashion people have bad breath?
