Fashion loses its edge?
Despite cooing over the VVB collection earlier in the week, I can't help but feel a bit let down by fashion of late. Where once eagerly awaited collections promised daring, the often brazen and avant-garde, there is now a same-ness, season after season. There is nothing with such a gob-smacking wow factor, that the masses are like cats on hot tin roofs, waiting for the look of the moment to filter down to the high-street; we know, without fail, that we'll have the choice of both military and cocoon coats in winter, the 'in' colour might be a surprise, ice-cream pastels in spring... I've just been alerted via Twitter, that there's a trend afoot - Rosie, Juno and Rita, all wearing...wait for it...suits! The nerve of them! I can hardly contain my excitement (sarc).
