Two days ago, during New York Fashion week, Oscar de la Renta presented his Fall 2013 collection, and surprised everybody by having John Galliano as a designer in residence for the past 3 weeks.
The show raised lots of buzz; many wanted to see the signature of the disgraced designer, many were just curious to see how one can mix water and oil, since the two designers are soooo different from each other.
For me, the best critic always, surgically precise, is Suzy Menkes, from The New York Times:
“It was an example of opposing aesthetics not quite meeting: two artists working on the same painting, with some nice touches like the toile de Jouy-type patterns… This was a collaboration that played out as interesting fashion comments on both sides — but not as a conversation.”
I could not agree more, take a look at the pics:
Particularly, I liked the baroque dresses, and I could not help noticing that they look quite a lot like the one the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague is wearing!
