Fashion faux pas


Take heart hobos – help is on the way!
And you’ll never guess where from!!

Government job offer? Nope – try again.
Secured bank loan? Negatory! Try again!
Credit card debt forgivess?
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
::: that would be a HELL no :::

No no no you sillies!

Your new friend in the face of this financial crisis isn’t the feds or any of the [many] houses of finance YOU bailed out with all that delicious TARPerificality.

No sir!
It’s Fashion!!
VOGUE fashion to be precise.

See, the magazine’s international pubs are suddenly all ‘poor is the new black’ so they’re planning to plan a simultaneously planned fashion extravagaaaanzaaaaa in 13 cities this September because they believe that watching sluts strut around in clothes you could never afford really is the best way to fight off the gloomies you’re feeling over all the pesky global economic probs.

“It seems important to mobilise to celebrate fashion, and show that despite the difficult times we more than ever need the enchantment and pleasure fashion brings,” explained Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld.

vogueforpoorsBecause … OF COURSE … why would anyone hold out for some boring old economic uptick or a sea change of governmental, corporate and personal fiscal responsibility to stop the worried, sleepless nights when they could just watch a fashion show?!?

“From London to New York to Milan and Mumbai, the magazine will invite its readers from different countries as well as others in the Conde Nast group — GQ, Vogue Hommes, Glamour, AD — to join the September 10 event ‘to celebrate the fashion industry.’ ”

The fashion industry?
Wait … they meant ‘to celebrate the spirit of the working person in the face of hardship and sacrifice’ right? Right?
I mean, I don’t know many vagabonds who read Vogue so that has to be a typo.

“In cities involved in the event, luxury stores will remain open to shoppers till late with Vogue writers, models and designers offering lessons in style.”

Umm, luxury stores? Shopping?
How does that speak to the strapped?
Where is the benefit for the beggar?

According to Xavier Romatet, who heads Publications Conde Nast, the idea is “to revive consumers’ taste for fashion and shopping.”

Ohhhh … ok … sooo Vogue is the beggar then …

Back to the breadline, bitches!!

THIS is, like, sooooo not right … ‘n stuff


sadgirlHold tight to your Hermès, girlfriends, because this is Hampton’s-Hissy-Fit BIG!

Looks like the The New Great Depression isn’t just for the little people, after all.
::: Chutney — I suggest you sit down for this, sweetie … :::

Chanel and Louis V are being forced to … to …
::: Oooohhh I almost just can’t even bring myself to say it, it’s so awful!!! :::

They are being forced to *gulp* ECONOMIZE!!!!!!!
::: Take it easy, Tinsley! :::

Chanel’s getting ready to lay off 200 staffers in their Paris office and LVMH has cancelled a plan for a Louis Vuitton megastore in the Ginza district of Tokyo.
::: DEEP BREATHS, BRYNN!!! :::

cryUntil recently, luxury brands were in goddamned fucking denial about the had claimed immunity from the growing worldwide Olympic-style economic nosedive.

But the cold bitchslap of reality has left a lingering sting that’s being felt from the boutiques of Paris to the la-tee-dah shoplofts and spas of London to the ostentatious avant-garde expos of New York as the not-so-nouveau-riche-anymore are foregoing their Friday evenings at Fred’s, Diamond Peel Microdermabrasions, Icho Cashmere jackets and caviar eye treatments.
::: Crap, Kiki! Get the salts – I think Mersaydi just had a mild cardiac event … :::

But don’t fault Franck Sorbier, don’t chide Coco and don’t even THINK of blaming Boudicca, bitches!!

This nouveau povertè was a fait accompli before the bailouts began …
… all that greedy moneygrubbiness and fadmongering of years past created such all-out hubris that now the well-off are just like the rest of us — facing, like,  a totally WAY harsh future … ‘n stuff!!

MAJOR sad face, right???
::: But, admit it! You know it’s gonna be 20 kinds of cocktail FUN watching Wilhelmina use a WIC!!! :::
