Roberto Cavalli and D&G Both Come Out With Untacky Collections?

I guess sometimes I just expect the sun to rise in the morning and set in the evening and I start to take it for granted and if one day it all changed and sundown would all of a sudden be at noon and sun up would be at 11pm it would be a shocking jolt to say the least. I would have to say good morning at night and goodnight in the morning and I would have breakfast for dinner and dinner for breakfast and have afternoon tea at 5am and all bars in NY would close at...... well you get the point. Like every season, when Milan rolls around I allow myself time off from stalking the internet like some weird fashion pervert during the Cavalli & D&G shows to take a breather and just look forward to the upcoming Paris shows when both houses throw me a curve ball by showing things that can work for those of us who don't like to dress like we have ties to the mafia. They both showed floral print dresses that were, dare I day, cute, not skin tight, spandex free, devoid of leopard print, sweet, ethereal. The D&G sandals were sweet perfection and no they did not resemble those often found within 6" of a brass pole, they were flat and sensible but still fashion forward. All this came to me as shock because I started thinking what if everything is going to be opposite in fashion from now on? Will the Lanvin show be a garish freak show involving bondage gear, will McQueen come out in roller skates at the end of the show full of poorly sewn dresses with strange hot-glue gunned appliqués? Maybe it's just like last season when Chloé was Marni and Marni was Chloé. Oh well so now I have to like them? Damn.



Well, ok, old habits die hard.

Maybe Jerry was right and there is a Bizarro Superman. Superman's exact opposite, who lives in the backwards bizarro world. Up is Down. Down is Up. He says "Hello" when he leaves, "Good bye" when he arrives.
