French fashion master Pierre Cardin presented his unique (ehm, very unique) spring/summer 2009 and autumn/winter 2009-2010 collections at his South of France home early last week and received rave reviews.
That said, I'm having some trouble understanding Cardin's direction. Before diving in to one of my very opinionated rants, i would just like to say that Pierre Cardin is an absolute genius. Sure, i may poke fun at some of his designs in a few moments but he is a true testament to the world of fashion and has been labeled "a breath of fresh air" in the European fashion market for over five decades - he's the bomb.
Now that i got that out of the way, what the hell is going on in the photos up above? (note: the photos above are examples of his work, due to copyrighting issues i can't post anything recent)
I don't care who you are or where you live, these clothes are just not practical. Don't get me wrong, the clothes are definitely a work of art, but the point of presenting a collection is to interest editors and to intrigue your fashion buyer audience so when market week roles around they buy up your fancy frocks like no tomorrow.
Is Pierre soley supporting his space-age design habit? Who is purchasing these looks?
I'm at a loss, Any ideas from any of my adoring fans out there?
