This magazine ad in BAZAR US takes the cake for me. When I saw this ad, I instantly thought …
We have reached the End of an Empire.
This is fashion that makes a statement, that steps over the line to the realm of the Ridiculous. Just imagine the meeting when the concept, idea for this ad was discussed. I imagine the conversations when this idea was promoted as a viable ad. Someone had to come up with such a laughable concept, and follow through with production.
Celebrate the Ugly! that is OK.
Just as the late KL sometimes liked to show us the irrational settings and designs to provoke a response, to mock the ever changing flow of fashion. He made us look at ourselves in the mirror, by showing the absurd. He made us think that fashion can be our way to express ourselves, no matter what a designer presents as the latest collection.
Just don’t take it seriously.
Gucci shows us that we can be just as silly as we want.
Best of all. We don’t have to spend a fortune to look like this. Just a trip to our local Charity Shop and we can style ourselves to look silly.
So, Bravo to Gucci!
If there are still people out there who buy these clothes, then they deserve to seen.
Bravo to the Absurd and the Ugly. Just don’t think you can fool me.
Next time I will talk more about the last few months I spent in Europe, my inspiration for Spring, I will show more of the sunny colors I like.
More to love and to enjoy,
