PR: Ripping the Collections – Casanova
Now that we’ve caught up a little bit on fashion week, it’s time to look at the Project Runway finale show collections that have since been revealed to be decoys. We’ll do Casanova today, Michael D tomorrow (probably) and then each designer as they get elminated straight through to the final three.
God bless him, Casanova was quite the entertaining character this season, but we can’t say we ever really got excited over his work. Veering as he did from demure to downright slutty, it was difficult to get a handle on who he really is as a designer. Looking at this glittering collection of labiatastic disco clothes, we can pretty definitively say that yes, Casanova prefers to make the slutty clothes. He introduced this collection by saying it was inspired by his grandmother, to which we can only say he must have one hell of a grandmother. We’d like to party with her some time.
Let’s start the show.
Same pair of crotchpants, now with the extra added flavor of boobs! Boobs with no support so they’re heading off in opposite directions! Casanova’s grandmother, you must be a sight to behold. Plus! Tips on how to turn old Christmas ornaments into jewelry!
The top is okay. Very drapey, which is something else he likes to do a lot. The shorts are kind of awful. He’s mimicking the bridesmaid challenge entry, right down to the inner thigh ribbing. He’s very all about a woman’s area, if you know what we mean.
A similar, kind of dull draped top with not a lot of interest. We can honestly say that those pants, with the straps and the cutouts, are kinda sorta interesting. It’s like the germ of a design idea that isn’t quite there yet. As it is, it’s more than a little inelegant.
Pretty dull and basic.
Ugly top, ugly pants. Another retread of his bridesmaid challenge entry.
Why he didn’t fasten the straps on the pants, we don’t know, but this, again, almost works. It’s the only element in the collection that we respond to and wish he had developed more.
Yes, hotpants studded with little moons and stars. Does that not say class or what? That belt is awful but the top isn’t bad.
And how else do you follow up a studded crotch and ass than with studded boobs? Darlings, it’s practically de rigeur.
