Walking in a Spider Web: Ashish at LFW


What Gwen once said so eloquently: "Sorry I'm not home right now, I'm walking in a spider web, so leave a message and I'll call you back," Indian-born, Brit designer Ashish Gupta reinterprets with his fall/winter 2011 collection for London Fashion Week.

Spider web knee decals, plaid mini skirts, 90's off-the-shoulder sweaters, and of course his trademark sequins, glided down the runway on models with uncombed hair and lip rings. He lets the clothes speak for themselves, and boy do they talk to me; they say: "buy me, love me, take me home, and grow some additional fashion 'balls.'"

It's all so hard to resist, as I can see Clueless being remade with an inverted plot--a preppy girl joins a grungy, punk rock clique from the other side of the tracks, but maintains some of her original fashion roots.

Think about that while my obsession for the labels grows even stronger.
