I was looking forward to VERA WANG‘s show yesterday. It was her first in two years. But it seemed she was trying to make up for lost time, throwing everything on the catwalk with no glue to make any sense of it. A couple of her models toppled off of the sky-high platforms. I walked away scratching my head. After NAEEM KHAN‘s lady-like evening wear presentation in the lobby of his condo building, it was a mad dash downtown for the OSCAR DE LA RENTA show at the Cunard Building. While still holding onto the master couturier’s handbook, things are starting to evolve. His touch still comes through, though. In the caftans especially. Not my favorite ODLR collection. But I didn’t hate it. And then out to Brooklyn for SAUVAGE X FENTY. My heart, Rihanna, put on a hell of a show. There was theater, drama, celebrity, all of that. BUT…I come for the fashion. And I hate when that gets lost in the spectacle. The cynic in me begins to question the possible reasons for diversion. I won’t speculate here but, it leaves way too much to ponder.
