Clowning Around

It’s nice to see designers having a good time with fashion.  Often I find the industry can take the subject far too seriously, and in trying times, it’s relieving to bring a since of humor to the table.  And though there’s frequently the conception that clowns are scary, (which I do not disagree with one bit!) that added quality only makes it all the more intriguing.

From the heavily blue eye-shadowed sparkly lady at Louis Vuitton, to Stella McCartney’s bold and playful prints, to Marni’s crafty take, to Roksanda Ilincic’s Ronald McDonald inspired getup, designers are certainly upping the silliness factor, but in a way that works for the modern woman.  I’m hoping once Fall Fashion week comes, (just two weeks away!) we see lots more of this clownish trend!
