Now With Fashion

So from today you can go to your local H&M shop and pick up some Karl Lagerfeld for H&M gear. (only in selected stores, though). Is this the start of some sort of brave new world in fashion? Top designers doing clothing lines for brands that aren't haute couture?

But why they are using Karl Lagerfeld in the ads, I don't know. Well, I do know why. But I dunno...I guess there's just something about old whitehaired guys with pony tails and super tight black jeans... There's something icky about it. And certainly nothing new. Compare Lagerfeld with Andy Warhol below. Lagerfelds collar is bigger and it's probably his own hair (which Warhol's possibly isn't, he wore a wig for most of his life).

It turns out that my father reads this blog, so y'all please wave at him. Or give him the thumbs up or whatever. ;-)
