COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK S/S12: HENRIK VIBSKOV

by Accidental Bear

The untrained eye might not think to look toward Denmark for eye-popping clothes from the future with a feel of times past. Dazed digital magazine caught up with the designer to talk about inspirations ands goals. Dazed said, “Henrik Vibskov always manages to impress his audience by giant installations, graphic prints, imaginative accessories and otherworldly sounds. This time around he was true to his style and presented a collection on a rotating catwalk with models opening and closing doors almost in a working class factory environment which provoked a feeling of paranoia or you might just say Panopticon.” Oh, I drool over the word panopticon.

Richie Rich; Circus Side Show

by Accidental Bear

Richie Rich needs a good dose of constructive criticism. A brain fart happened after his latest showing was brought to my attention. Richie’s seems to be going backwards. Its common for a “designer” to start out their carreer using card board, scotch tape and table clothes for garments but after they mature ( make more money) they graduate on to more luxurious fabrics and themes. Richie Rich may have peaked during his Klub Kid years. I Give him props for pulling off the  Madonna 1984 look, but must deduct points for stealing Michael Aligs personality from Party Monster.

All that said, I WANT to be a fan. We get it, you know famous people and you throw unconventional people down the runaway;  Shock and Awe! Your shows are more like a cluster fuck than a fashion show. Richie is  like that 45 year guy that still wears all his football jersey from his glory days of high school. Time to put down the glue gun, and put away you Klub clothes via 1990, kids dress differently now. And in the famous words of my beloved Tim Gunn , ” EDIT EDIT EDIT!” Tame your circus, it is distracting from your clothes, unless that’s the intention.

The Fug Girls: JWOWW, Johnny Weir, Tinsley Mortimer, Penis, Pretzels, and Much More at Richie Rich

The experience of attending Richie Rich‘s epic clusterfuck of a show on Thursday night may have destroyed us. Arrival to departure, it was a three-hour odyssey — an epic poem full of rage, drag queens, nudity, figure skaters, and, inexplicably, the attendance of a 4-year old child. Our notes from the show read like nonsense sentences people make from novelty fridge magnets: “Tinsley. Penis! Sequined panties. Penis redux. Pretzel?” We feel unable to remember what life was like in a gentler age, before this show was inflicted upon us. It is day one of Fashion Week, and already, we have met our Waterloo. Richie Rich has broken us.

Tim Gunn Doesn’t Eat Beaver or Wear it

Here is the 6,000th reason why you should love Tim. I have this weird feeling that although Tim is against fur fashion that he’s an animal in the sack ( just saying).

Tim Gunn Says No Fur at Fashion Week

Project Runway host Tim Gunn is using New York’s Fashion Week as a way to spread his “no fur” message.

“I’m on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it,” he said. “I’d just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, ‘Is it really necessary?'”

Gunn, who appeared Thursday night at Stella McCartney’s boutique along with Taraji P. Henson, Olivia Wilde and representatives of PETA, would like designers and shoppers to understand the consequences of using real fur. “There are other products we can use,” Henson said. “Get a fake fur.”

Henson is currently appearing, sans clothing, in the current ad for PETA’s “Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked” campaign.
