In the latest Vanity Fair, Ralph Rucci -- the only US-based couturier -- laments the tragic state of fashion affairs today. He hates collections based on one theme (he mentions anything inspired by Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde) and thinks that the perfect sartorial ensemble is a pair of jeans, a white shirt and black turtleneck. Hm, that sure does sound like Apple mastermind Steve Jobs's perennial uniform. Could the masterly designer be suggesting that Steve Jobs, a man dedicated to making geek the new chic, be the future of fashion. Highly implausible, but a fun thought to entertain nonetheless.
