In my Fantasy World ... . . I dress like this.
I wish I could say, in my Real World I dress like the previous post -
in Chanel. Alas ... . . that's simply another Fantasy World.
I suppose this is a real giggle for many, simply because
no one dresses like this!
This is the Runway World .. . . which is , of course,
All Fantasy / All The Time.
This is the current Runway World of Commes des Garcons, 4oth
anniversary edition, to be shown in a series of guerrilla-style stores.
I've always loved Rei Kawakubo's designs and these were of particular
interest because I find these images to be such a delightful mix:
the epitome of Contrast & Contradiction.
Who could resist Tulle Tutus with Black Leather
and Powdered Wigs???!
Certainly not .. .. . moi.
Some days I prefer my Fantasy World.
In it, I don't have to confront those inconvenient realities -
my budget and my body.
... . to say nothing of all those people at the grocery store,
who would roll their eyes and mutter: Elle est folle.
