The dernier cri of Vogue Runway Reviews

Barragán Spring 2023 Ready-to-wear


The last post-net designer standing? Gimcrack designs as bite-sized jokes to digitally digest. Not dissimilar from early DIS. This collection almost convinces though, approaching the explicit humor of Jeremey Scott pantomime. Because, Yes, Great America is actually a Janus-faced syphilitic hellhole. This ‘punchline’ so obviously overplayed it registers now a classic. A certified genre costume. Like Scott doing American 50s housewife, the American meth pauper is now just another costume trope: fun, stylistically monochromatic. (shown on 9/11)
