CRITICS CHOICE: FASHION WEEK ROUNDUPS ON THE MOMENT

October 09, 2008 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Editors.jpgDid real-world matters like the yo-yo-ing markets, the presidential race and the war steal your attention away from Paris fashion week? If they did, you missed spring-summer 2009 clothing made of wigs (at Margiela), dresses of deconstructed soccer balls (at Comme des Garçons) and camel-toe footwear (at Balenciaga). Which collections were chic? Which were ugly? Which were ugly but in a chic kind of way? To help answer those questions, The Moment has culled a few bon mots from the Times family critics Suzy Menkes (SM), Eric Wilson (EW) and Cathy Horyn (CH). If you’re still craving fashion, you can flash back to their critics’ roundup from Milan or New York.
