Selections from Paris Fashion Week, 2015
I may be getting old, but I do try to keep in touch with modern fashion. The black facial buboes I can appreciate as being evocative of the romance of fourteenth-century European plagues, but why supplement those beauty spots with a mustache? Better to go with full facial hair -
- a la congenital hypertrichosis. Personally I would favor gluing on a facial hairpiece, because this linear application to me suggests the aftermath of binge drinking at a fraternity where there is a large supply of magic markers.
The off-the-shoulder trashbag -
- might be awkward at the dinner table or riding the bus, but it does nicely accentuate the sideboob.
There are dozens more images in a gallery at Madison.com.
