Guo Pei Spring 2018

I’m editing this week, so I only have time for a quickie… (Oh, behave.) On days like this, sometimes the craziest fashion is just the thing! This is the Spring 2018 collection by visionary nutball designer Guo Pei, and I can’t get enough!

I know it’s all way over the top ridiculous, but if you think of it as sculpture, her designs seem much less crazy. And if you’re worried that she’s not selling anything, don’t. Her Summer collections are always eminently wearable.

Anyway, I’ve got to run. Thank goodness I’m not wearing those shoes!

You can see the entire wacky collection on Vogue, but I really recommend you watch them in motion in the video below. They’re kind of a big deal.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  3. I never have understood spending money and time designing on something so out there that no one in their right mind would wear. How ever…they are artistic.

  4. I LOVE these! I love how fashion has really broken the barrier and shown people that it is in fact art. ❤

  5. These designs made me start humming ‘Defying Gravity’. I’m in the waiting room of an orthodontist so I hope the other waiting parents are enjoying the musical interlude.

  6. Very artistic indeed… some like sculptures, some like light fixtures – but *none* like clothes, at least IMHO! Fun to look at though!!

  7. These look like what the women in the Capitol wear in the Hunger Games movies.

    The yellow dress, it’s, so beautiful and yet like a cage.

  9. yes, certainly sculpture… but I can’t think of an event I’d go to that wearing such a dress would be appropriate.
