Honestly? I thought it was pretty bullshit. Prada has continuously shown that their “aesthetic” is SUPER WHITE models and would have been much more interesting if they had opened and closed with a POC. Bringing out Gemma Ward from retirement is tired and old. If you want to bring back a dope model cast Alek Wek.
I had been wanting to see this movie ever since I saw a preview for it a couple months ago (which is rare as I very rarely am inclined to go to the movies). Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig always had tremendous chemistry on SNL so I knew that even if the story wasn’t fantastic it would still probably be worth the $12/ticket. And, man, it completely exceeded my expectations in every way. (There are some spoilers below but I’ll try to keep them to a minimum)
apparently big bird isnt a real bird and has been a person in a costume this whole time. this brings into the question the authenticity of all other birds. are some of them also filled with tiny humans. do any birds actually exist
Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
I hope this doesn’t sound SUPER self-involved but I recently had a bunch of people follow me due to an actual popular blog reblogging some stuff I wrote AND I really like to follow people back who interact with me SO - if I currently don’t follow you either like this comment or send me an ask and I’d really like to follow you back. Ok gtg - my cat is eating a piece of plastic because he is mentally challenged and doesn’t understand what food is.
Why does everybody and their mama have a diffusion line? Unless you’ve been in the game more than a decade or if you’re a younger label that has real brand recognition like A.Wang, whats the point? Wouldnt it be smarter to do a capsule collection exclusively with an international department store…
I think this is a really good question! My personal take is that the average diffusion line is more that the brand is trying to increase exposure to younger clients who wouldn’t otherwise know about the brand (and who as adults with their own disposable income will shop their main line) as well as keeping the number of fakes and copy-cats down that many of the fast fashions stores produce (looking at you Forever 21) all while maintaining the high price point that still renders them a luxury brand. Some of the best diffusion lines I’ve seen have been a result of a collaboration between the low-range department stores (Target/Kohls/H&M) and high-end designers.
NOW, Preen was definitely interesting in that they decided that their diffusion line (Preen Line) wasn’t going to drop the price point to the ~$100 per item that one normally associates with a diffusion line and kept it at a much higher ~$400 per item price point. I actually agree with you that if they were going to keep their price point so much higher that a capsule collection would seem more logical but I’m wondering if this was their “fuck you” to the idea that a diffusion line should be accessible to the masses.
