FASHION THAT ADMITS TO AN EMOTION.

There was something that took flight in this Dior SS 15 showing that moved Simons into the realm of the historic.There was something that took flight in this Dior SS 15 showing that moved Simons into the realm of the historic.

Do you notice how emotional fashion people have been this season? The ennui that made an emotional vacuum of the anti-spectacle of the Marc Jacobs. Tears at the Prada. Awe at the Dior. And then there was Phoebe Philo's honest and (gasp) heartfelt expression of uncertainty..or what Philo described to style.com as "being aware of the connection between creativity and risk".

As fashion has blurred faster and faster, moving now, almost at the speed of light, or at least fiber optic cables, it has felt as if it had also gotten more cynical. What used to be a tight little hermetic circle of taste and cool has been blown open to something of a mob scene with a lot of carelessness and crassness to go with it. But the true talent that anchor this industry had always held themselves to principles of both passion and excellence.

TI FLASHBACK: MODELSPOTTING, ART BARONS AND THE FACE OF THE ZEROES

Gemma Ward : In the Days When She Walked ShowsGemma Ward : In the Days When She Walked Shows

At Haru while having lunch with the nicest model manager you could imagine, the following happened. As usual, the talk had turned to agency gossip. Not malicious, or particularly competitive but just...idle. " Yeah and Gemma Ward's been looking particularly happy these days". he said in a fairly loud voice, "Cause as we all know she's not always the happiest camper" I sat facing the door, so I could see, literally as he spoke the approaching figure of...Gemma Ward, in these little denim hot pants and a totally non-descript tank top with that model staple, an army coat thrown over it. She looked great, tall and slimmer than the last time we glimpsed her with long tousled blonde hair, looking very much like a beautiful teenaged tourist. She was with her IMG agent. I completely blanched and my lunch companion followed my eyeline to its conclusion. At that point we burst out laughing.If this were a scene in a movie, the audience would go..."Yeah Right!" Poor Gemma probably felt over scrutinized at this point and whether under the weight of our gaze or by pure chance, Maja and Gemma soon elected to take an outside table. I waved hello as they went by and left it at that.
