Paris Fashion Week is here! Yay, yay, hip, hip, hooray!
Yes, that's right, we can always count on fashion to cheer us up, even as the world falls apart around us.
This one is for you, The UE...
"Pugh talked about the duality of outfits that were all white in front, all black in back. The notion of emerging from darkness was his contribution to the irrational optimism of the Spring season as it has unraveled in New York, London, Milan, and now Paris. But there was also an inescapable subtext of protection in outfits with breastplates that jutted up over the face." - Tim Blanks
Put on your armor and be brave. It's going to be a battle but you will emerge from the darkness, the warrior that you are. - xo
