Balenciaga: Return of the Jedi
I’ve been publishing images of various fashion phenomena on my Facebook for a while now. However THIS created such a great disturbance in The Force that I thought it worth of sharing on blog too. Behold, Star Wars fans!
I understand the fashion world is obsessed over hats. I also understand it is difficult to come up with something new every season. We have already witnessed Anna Sui cat hats, Thakoon’s bi-colored hats, Miu Miu’s turbans… but Balenciaga?! “Nicolas! Nicolas, don’t — it’s a trap! It’s a trap!” Too late… he is on the dark side now. You can’t trick us by wearing clashing prints instead of traditional black cape either. We know WHO you are – Darth Vader!
In fact, I think Star Wars would benefit from re-making the scene where the Dark Lord revealed his face. Seriously, who cares about some wrinkled white-faced guy with exaggerated under eye dark circles? Show us his legs! That would be a real controversy.
May the Force be with you this Sunday, dear reader…
