What the heck is going on in fashion right now? Nobody knows, really. Proof: the NY Times' Cathy Horyn says so. And she knows everything (trust—we're not even being facetious), so it must be true. Horyn writes: "...fashion isn’t very decisive at the moment. 'Anything goes' no longer means wearing what you like; it means pulling up your rudder and going with the current, sailing blind. I keep hearing designers with long experience, and perhaps dwindling resources and customers, say, 'I don’t understand anything anymore.'" PS: This, right, is a rudder. [On the Runway]
