“In the name of Fashion”-Prada’s-Multi Million Social Primitivism

“Fashion is primitive in its insistence on exhibitionism, which withers in isolation. The catwalk fashion show with its incandescent hype is its apotheosis. A ritualized gathering of connoiseurs and the spoilt at a spotlit parade of snazzy pulchritude, it is an industrialized version of the pagan festivals of renewal. At the end of each seasonal display, a priesthood is enjoined to carry news of the omens to the masses.”

[Stephen Bayley (b. 1951), British design critic. “Fashion: Being and Dressing,” pt. 2, Taste (1991).]

“It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion.”
Yves Saint Laurent.

WELL, A ONE-LINE QUOTE-A WHOLE LESSON FOR MADAME PRADA.

  1. I cannot understand what Prada was trying to prove by making models walk on these ugly and obviously inhuman shoes… Yves was spot on in his remark, it will stand forever.

  2. It pains me physically to see a woman victimized, rendered pathetic, by fashion.

    the pagan festivals of renewal

    hmm.

    what else is FASHION
    but using way too young girls for our (men’s) sexua fantasies?

    hmm indeed.

    sorry to be so fucking cynical, but Play along and, well,

    PLAY ALONG.

  3. sorry about the spelling mistake above, but, honestly, who the fuck are we trying to kid?

    fashion = nonsense.

    Love it or leave it. (I love/hate it.) Jesus. Stop kidding yourselves. Just look at any random selection of FASHION magazines/pix

    seriously

    You can’t love it and not hate it.

    that’s THE NATURE OF THE GAME.
