The Sublime and the Ridiculous

It's Fashion Week once again, so I've been busily scrolling through the slideshows. I must say I've been quite disappointed overall. Not quite as much absurdity as in previous years, few knockouts, and far too many jumpsuits. (Why are the back? Who decided that the jumpsuit really needed to make a return?) I haven't finished perusing the collections yet (and the shows are still ongoing), but here are my high/lowlights so far.

I present the sublime, courtesy of the reliably lovely Marchesa:

And here's the ridiculous. Seriously, is Marc Jacobs just fucking with us at this point? Kabuki makeup, quilted bike shorts, and a fanny pack? Really?
