Yes, Mad Men is a big hit right now and having a huge impact on the fashion industry. Yes, several designers have come out with mid-century-inspired collections in the last year or so. But enough’s enough, editors and stylists. Find some other theme. Because if we see one more woman in 2010 fashions styled to look like 1955, we’re going to scream. We especially want to impose a moratorium on anything from the Prada or Louis Vuitton Fall ’10 collections, because we’re getting a little sick of looking at the same dresses popping up.
Don’t get us wrong, the images and clothes are gorgeous, but it’s JUST. SO. DONE.
Oh, and those kitten-heeled LVs with the bow are HIDEOUS.
