If MM6 is the younger sister to Maison Martin Margiela, the fall show certainly lived up to the youthful vibe. It was urban, athletic and clean, with hints of the tongue-in-cheek minimalism that is at the core of the namesake label's DNA. The show opened to the onstage strains of singer Sean...

It began with "I am appalled at Rick Owens" and describes your collections as "troll clothes for the most desperate lemmings." I love that you reprinted it in the book, rendering it puerile and rather ridiculous. Is there more to that? Here's another one I love but didn't put in: "Rick Owens...

If the Orient Express were to travel from Las Vegas to Asia with a final stop in Paris for Fashion Week, you might guess Dries Van Noten had been riding this train in the run-up to his spring collection. The Dries Express started us off in 1960s Las Vegas with a nod to femme-fatale casino...

It's not easy describing a Comme des Garçons show, even with the benefit of hindsight and crowdsourced tweets. Especially since, according to fashion lore, Rei Kawakubo often gives her design team barely a word of inspiration to hang the entire collection from. As she herself doesn't give...
