Repulsive Little Fashion Troll, Part 3

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, not everyone agrees that the Galliano was the genius.

I can’t imagine why people think this troll is so very talented. He’s been taking old, dead, has-been ideas, exaggerating them to cartoon ridiculousness, staging them with massive amounts of corporate money, and justifying them with post-modern pseudo-intellectual claptrap. Galliano’s b.s. has stunk for some time now. Maybe his most recent troll behavior will force people to realize he’s not all that, and never was. In fact, if the old French houses had any brains, they’d dump posers like Galliano and embrace the 21st century. Instead, they remain mired in a ironic nostalgia, as if that were still hip! Meh– it’s not “transgressive,” it’s not even modern. It’s just a boring pastiche of the past, designed by a crew of creepy drunks and junkies– who seem to hate themselves, their jobs, and their customers!

The Manolo does not agree with this, but the stridency of the comment and the fluid manner in which it was expressed made the Manolo laugh.

    Some French people want to prosecute him. Wouldn’t it be nice if they also wanted to prosecute Polanski?

    I used to consider him to be gifted, he was my favourite designer to watch, maybe a bit boring in the last few seasons, but still my favourite. As has been mentioned before, my “tipping point” has been reached. What he said is unthinkable, unfeelable, incomprehensible.
    Now everything he does will be tarnished by the ugly little man he is.
    I also can’t bear Polanski, how could one watch a movie without thinking all the time about his crime? Disgusting.
    You can’t take the two aspects apart, it’s always going to be “He creates beautiful art, but he is a criminal” – it does make the art ugly.

    I don’t go to Woody Allen movies for the same reason. OK, he didn’t commit a crime, but what he did was morally repugnant. Plus his movies just aren’t any good any more.
