Christ, this is lame. Like, seriously lame. And I don’t EVER post about stuff that’s lame, but who could possibly resist these amazing pictures?
Yep, that’s Kim Gordon, Courtney Love, Ariel Pink, and Marilyn Manson. I don’t know which “model” is the most baffling to find in this ad campaign. Kim has the most integrity (her hands rock my world, btw) but she’s been in the designer fashion game for a long-ass time. Ariel Pink (looking kinda like Jeffrey Lee Pierce, just sayin’) is out of left field, but in a weird way makes more sense than the rest of ’em. Courtney is openly obsessed with being rich, getting plastic surgery, being a sell-out, etc, so that’s no surprise. Marilyn Manson. What the serious fuck is going on there? Even when I was goth in high school that guy was not cool. And then he got fat and even more boring. Whatev though.
If the ads pique your interest in the actual collection, you can check it out here. Who rocks this stuff? Wealthy, skinny 30-somethings looking for “grunge cred” who are too afraid to head to their local thrift store? Does this fashion elite even know (or care) what grunge is, or are they just blindly following the designer’s big-ticket vision of what it is?
I didn’t want to get into a criticism of the actual collection, but I mean, the looks alone are just fine. Nothing that special/edgy. For the price though? Really this looks like Hedi Slimane was asked to create a “rocker girl”-inspired collab for Target. At least McQueen and Gaultier can make punk look lux.
Did I mention this is terrible?
