The whole designer capsule collection is something The Fashion Police have never really been able to fake a lot of enthusiasm over. Honestly, we get exhausted just thinking about them: all of that frenzied shopping, the getting up at the crack o’dawn to line up outside H&M, or wherever, just so you can buy exactly the same items as the hundreds of other girls all lined up outside H&M and type the word “SQUEEE!” a few dozen times on Twitter when you finally manage to get your hands on something that is OMGDESIGNER: exhausting. And the fact that the “hero” items (dontchya just hate that term?) sell on eBay for just as much as something from the designer’s main line? Madness. Utter, Fashion Victim madness.
Anyway, all of this is academic in the case of the Giambattista Valli for Macy’s collection, because we don’t have Macy’s here in the UK. This is a shame, because if we DID have easy access to this collection then we, too, would be able to dance on a table in head-to-toe leopard print:
But, of course, we can’t do any of this, because we live in the UK, and will only be able to buy these pieces on eBay, for the price of a small car. Thus, our lives will be empty and meaningless from this moment on, while our American officers are the ones who will dance on the tables:
We want to cry at the injustice of it all.
On a serious note, though: what do you think of this collection? Will you be buying any of it?
