Parade of questions
What is fashion? What is a parade for? Is beauty still the topic? Is elegance a completely old-fashioned value? And the clothes in all of this? Are they still important? More or less than the images that run on Instagram? More or less than people have settled down first row ? Fashion week ended a few days ago and leaves behind a pile of questions and a pile of amazing souvenir photos. This was taken during the Andreas Kronthaler fashion show for Vivienne Westwood, at Gaîté Lyrique.
What do we see in this image? A tangle of stars of all kinds widely dressed or accessorized by the inviting brand. Far left of this first row, to begin with, the presence of the so-called Dara (9.8 million followers on Instagram). A former member of the K-pop group 2NE1, the South Korean star notably sports a Vivienne Westwood pearl necklace here that goes around her neck three times, she says. “necklace”. This is how specialists call pearl necklaces longer than 114 centimeters.
Two places away, Doja Cat (24.4 million followers on Instagram) also displays a spectacular piece of jewelry. In fact, consistent with his entire outfit, the rapper wears an ornament inspired by pieces of Berber origin historically made by artisans from southern Morocco, in particular those from the city of Tiznit. In fact, the many gold discs that fall on both sides of his face are reminiscent of the work around the coins of Moroccan artisans who, for lack of precious materials, appreciated everyday objects.
The next scarlet
To the left of Doja Cat, another singer shines brightly. Halsey (30.6 million Instagram followers), dressed in red, wears a spectacular pair of thigh-high boots that underscore the strange fate of this shoe. Born several centuries before Jesus, this high boot was for a long time a symbol of a form of proud virility and the prerogative of the military, the only ones authorized to ride a horse. Things began to change in 19And century with the feminization of horse riding and it has never stopped being reversed … In fact, soldiers wearing these shoes are quite rare.
Alongside Doja Cat, influencer model skateboarder Evan Mock (1.1 million followers on Instagram) also took care of appearances. Horsebit loafers, white socks, enamel, tank top, he also wore a Westwood pearl necklace allowing us to reopen the practice … If in fact Dara’s necklace were a Sweater, what kind of model is here? A suffocation, 36 to 40 centimeters in length? A Princess, 40 to 45 centimeters? Or one morning, 45 to 60 centimeters? Another question that fashion week leaves behind.
