Manolo says, apparently the conciet at Monday’s Marc Jacobs show was that everything was cuckoo-nutty bass-ackwards, and thus the show began with the designers bow, and went backwards (and/or downhill) from there.
Naturally, the perfect shoes for such presentation were those with the “backward heel.” The Manolo’s internet friend at the Cuffington blog suggests that there may be the physics lesson here.
Frankly, the Manolo is not feeling these shoes.
As for the clothes, this quote from the NY Sun’s Pia Catton made the Manolo laugh.
The evening dresses had a peculiar “Beetlejuice” quality: one-third Goth, one-third downtown, one-third cat-loving, nutty-artist girl — not exactly man bait.
Finally, you will notice from the short video clip below that the music was not played backward.
And for the very good reason, as everyone knows what happens when you play Ravel’s Bolero backward.
