The Bumbys
The Bumbys wear wigs, masks, and offer “A Fair and Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance“. They are also taking over the fashion industry, and bringing in crowds like Britney brings the crazy. The anonymous duo“Gill Bumby” and “Jill Bumby” – are performing artists armed with manual typewriters and ingenuity. The name of the game? Stand in front of them, and you get a wittier alternative to a Clinton and Stacy style assessment, eg.

You have an Izzy Blow – but non-suicidal – super pretty face vibe. Your look is killing it today. The way I picture you is in Lula magazine, floating on a sea of chiffon and blowing bubbles in a rainstorm. Turbans equal difficult-to-pull-off, but today, and probably usually, you are a queen of awesome.

While the idea reigns creatively, their success seems to confirm the superficial relevance of others’ judgement. Would you take part?

Moschino Runway MFW Constance Jablonski
Oh, Moschino. Oh, Rossella Giardini. This is a woman after my wardrobe’s heart. For Milan Fashion Week, she presented a show full of high energy colour, geometric motifs, and enough chic turbans and panama hats to last far after Spring/Summer 2011. The Moschino Masterpiece this time was a Mexican-style dress with a structured bodice. It’s going to be interesting to see how the high street tries to replicate it. View Post
