Of course these pictures have been on the interweb for a minute, but with the two hundred odd shows of the past F/W 11 runway season having taken precedent and that veritable 14.5 light year distance between the Japanese island of Honshu and North America having prevented the magazine’s timely arrival at our Park Avenue newsstand I’ve frankly not had an opportunity to write about them on this page.

Before I can truly call full time on the F/W 11 show season I must first push this Paris review out the door. New York Fashion Week felt like a lark after the way Milano Moda Donna made me (not to mention the models!) feel. There is something about cramming all those Milano shows into what are essentially four days rather than the six on the calendar that is downright brutal.

The other week deep in the fog of the show season this story arrived in my inbox. Amidst a forest of exclamation marks and ASCII smileys it was apparent from the message that this was not just any Mert & Marcus masterpiece, nay, it was several hygrometer percentages sultrier. There is no shortage of bare flesh in the supposedly clothing-centric field of fashion photography (see also Purple Spring / Summer 2011), but that doesn’t necessarily translate into imagery that could be construed as even remotely seductive let alone artistic.
