Timely fashion

Soccer cleats for men and its repercussions may be felt far beyond the runway, as the popular excuse to be “fashionably late” ceases to be an acceptable apology for dinner guests who show up for dessert.

Such is the enormous influence Jacobs holds over fashionable culture.

On the last day of the fall/winter 2009/2010 Paris collections, as editors and buyers sauntered through the open spaces of the Louvre museum’s courtyard toward the giant clear plastic tent erected for the muchanticipated Louis Vuitton show by Jacobs, they unwittingly twittered and checked their emails, blithely unaware that they were going to miss one of the season’s most important shows. (Because the tent was transparent, however, they could watch it along with a gathering of tourists who struggled for a rare view of next fall’s vision for Vuitton.)

Shows on the international circuit routinely start 45 soccer cleats for men minutes to one hour kids magista late. It’s a timing thing you get used to it.

Luckily, as I entered the tent, an arm reached out and grabbed my sleeve. Sit here now instructed Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan, patting the chair to her left.

Boom the soccer cleats for men show began.

In the past Jacobs has been soccer cleats for men roundly criticized for the lateness of his New York shows one fully two hours past due. Miffed by the very public rebuke, two weeks ago he started his own Marc Jacobs show two minutes early.

Concerned he may be setting a precedent, Givhan and a lot of other guests were prepared. But many weren’t, so they missed the parade of artful draping and gathering on little black dresses and short skirts that has come to define this season.

Jacobs continues the trend to swag and gather fabric like an interior designer experiments with luxurious window treatments.

There was dense ruching on short bubble skirts. Boots were thigh high and laced loosely up the back with ribbon. Splattered yellow, black and purple prints morphed into something else when the material was bunched and gathered. The models wore necklaces of looped gold bracelets with a big, gold combination lock as a clasp.

The previous day, the Herms collection designed by Jean Paul Gaultier riffed on the early days of aviation, a theme played out with brown leather bomber jackets and sweeping leather skirts. The models reflected a mix of the dashing Amelia Earhart and the popular Hollywood sirens of the day.

And late kids magista that night, John Galliano reviewed his overthetop folkloric collection in a cavernous warehouse where he fabricated his own Russianstyle snowstorm.

The show was thick with Balkan references and attested to the designer’s superior talents as a costume researcher. If this fashion gig tanks, Hollywood, an industry that’s apparently flourishing despite the economic meltdown, would be a natural home for his enormous talent.

There were elaborate metal headpieces, giant grey coats, peasant blouses with exaggerated balloon sleeves, richly embroidered skirts and pompom festooned boots soccer cleats for men kids magista.
