Ever since viewing the Karl Lagerfeld Spring 2009 RTW photos, I can’t seem to get the theme song from The Jetsons out of my head. The clothing as well as the shoes have that distinct retro-futuristic look that is reminiscent of dozens of 1960′s science fiction movies. There’s definitely a Judy Jetson goes to the dark side vibe going on here.
And, yes, the shoes match quite harmoniously with the clothing presented on the runway. And I rather liked the overall lines and details of this collection. However, I do have my doubts on whether the flared ankle-cuff-cum-lampshade can match harmoniously with a real-life ‘modern’ wardrobe (as opposed to the runway fantasy version of the future seen here). After all, lampshades belong on lamps; anywhere else on your body and you’re likely to be the talk of the party.
So, sing with me:
Meet George Jetson.
His boy Elroy.
Jane, his wife.
See, I can’t stop humming. It’s okay for you to join in, nobody needs to know.
