For the first installment of her column for Document, the iconic stylist and fashion multihyphenate offers a poetic examination of Kim Jones’s showroom
Champagne on Ice
Walking into an all-white space, which feels like a
room from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey…
This lifted me into an ultra-modern landscape for
The word Couture.
Surprised and excited to feel Kim’s new wave
For this season’s Fendi couture collection.
And Modern it was… Speaking to Kim, and Lucy
From his team, I was already informed of
His fresh and more-wearable couture ideas for
The modern women. Diverting the undergarments
To become the actual look.
Workmanship is one of Kim’s staple effects
In everything he touches…
And with a few of the
The dresses, he Laid It Out for the ladies.
Knowing that Couture is usually desired for
Lavish red-carpet events! He totally switched
Up his game and gave us crystal-heeled trainer
shoes, for That Girl who still likes to get down
On the dance floor!
With light-as-a-feather, champagne-colored
Beaded and crystal-embroidered full-length
Silk-lace gowns, a girl will feel herself
Lifted into the air, as light as they did in the 2001
With no strings attached!
Introducing leather and lace to the collection also
Invites that Bad Girl flex to Kim’s customer.
And Champagne is what she drinks…
