While unpacking I unearthed a bunch of items from 1998 and 1999. This discovery got me musing about my favorite Spring shows of all time. Marc’s SS99 collection for Louis Vuitton holds the number one spot — I still have the white poncho even though it’s unwearable. In a wonderful twist of fate, I started casting the LV show the next season. The Calvin Klein and Prada SS98/99 collections are close seconds.
A seminal moment in fashion history, this sliver of time crystalized my fashion sensibility. It’s how I want to dress right now, tomorrow, and forever. Instead of exhausting the Netflix library or learning to bake bread (I can’t find a bag of flour, anyway), I should remind myself how to sew. Maybe it’s time to design some of my own clothes.
