Last season, sheer pants were everywhere on the runways. I thought that was a little bit strange. But then this season rolled around, and I've been seeing something a little stranger:
Above left: Marc Jacobs fall 2008. Above right: Giles fall 2008.
It's not even a veil, it's a bag over their head. I'm sure I could come up with some long-winded interpretation that had something to do with identity and social constructs and the establishment, but frankly, I don't have the energy (hey, I'm not in the Gallatin School For Individualized Study!).
SO I think it's time for another C'est La Mode constest! I will award One Million Dollars to whoever can come up with the most convoluted and pretentious explanation of this new phenomenon. Bonus points if you can use the phrase "experiential capital."
