Heatherette 2007 Spring Fashion Show (source)
To me, the Heatherette show reminds me of a few things:
1) The Heatherette boys went crazy with the Barbie clothing weaving looms. Remember those kits you could get that had the pink circular looms, and you could create sparkly knit leggings for your Barbie dolls? Yeah, that's what this line reminds me of, but add some hot glue gunned buttons and accessories from the craft store, circa 1989.
2) This season, "Gaudy" is the new Boho-chic: Gold lame puff jackets? Unnecessary chest harnesses? Fur in surprising places? Elvis' long lost poncho? Yes please!
3) Elizabeth Taylor's closet vomited.
Isn't fashion week grand? In all honesty, I was disappointed by Heatherette's total lack of imagination in their new line...there isn't one wearable item that you could just throw on with a pair of jeans and have your best friend covet. It's all just a little icky. Oh well, maybe in the fall...
