The Mad Men era might be long gone but in the fashion universe next season it makes a comeback. Never has fashion been so glamorously minimalist
We all remember Coco’s wise advice: “Less is more”. As Milan and Paris proved, next season you’d better listen to her fashion majesty Mademoiselle’s words.
With a true celebration of womanhood this season as seen at Louis Vuitton and Prada, the emphasis is put on the feminine shapes of the 50s and 60s. Dior’s full skirt, emblematic of the New Look as well as the sixties reined the catwalk this season. Does that mean that for fall women would take fashion advices from their grandmothers (emphasizing on the fact that not everyone at the time was Jacky O, nor did everyone have access to her wardrobe)? Or does it prepare Mad Men’s audience to expect Betty’s appearance in a future episode in one of Jacob’s/Prada’s creations? Be it as it may, 2010 would be a celebration of the real woman: elegant, chic, bold, sophisticated, powerful and feminine..and probably always with a cigar in her hand.
