FashionWeek, The Play-by-Play Day 5

1pm - Thom Browne

For Spring/Summer 2010 Thom took us to Florida. We are talking Marlin prints, neoprene, and sea shell -covered briefcases. Yes -- you heard me! It was all very fun and silly. The music was Sergeant Pepper "Yellow Submarine" (which we cannot get out of our head). The pants were these wild drop-crotch with wide legs to the point of looking like skirts. The outerwear was actually wearable. We cannot wait to try on that white poncho with hood in the fashion closet when the Spring samples start arriving. Oh and the swimsuits were bonkers, but we are dying to see the first queen sporting them on Fire Island. We are talking '40s women's swimwear with a flap to cover the goodies in an almost skort fashion. And then, the finale: a black paillette disco ball creature emerging from the depths of the sea (it was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea on crystal).

5pm - Y-3

Yohji and Adidas went crazy with an Olympics, global, soccer theme. It was very team uniform in the beginning. Which led into some drape-y jersey viscose long jackets in a sage-y gray that were degorge. The interesting tailoring of the athletic pants (drop-crotch and jodhpur-like) was actually beautiful. What will we be wearing of it? Maybe the headbands and the drape-y plaid looks that were grunge meets Japan meets athletic-wear. And the big finale: the unbelievably elfin and adorable Yohji Yamamoto kicking a soccer ball at the press photographers.

9pm - Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn

Watching the VMAs from home. Madonna's speech for Michael Jackson was really powerful. She is the last megastar still alive and I think it really hit home for her. Lady Gaga is a pop icon! She is playful and silly and yet highbrow and talented. We just think she is the cat's meow. Oh, and Pink doing all the crazy acrobat stuff while singing, how beyond was that?
