Apocalypse Closet: Fall 2014 RTW London

I always imagine London as having it far more together than we ever do in the United States. The whole UK just seems so civilized. So, I’m always surprised to hear my friend, Jess, tell stories about Britons who are just as racist and misogynist as many Americans.

I blame costume dramas. For my perceptions. Not for racism and misogyny.

At least London’s Fall 2014 Ready-To-Wear collections appeared to be designed by people who are sharing the experience of watching our world go to seed. There were similar motifs throughout several collections.

My new favorite thing: sweater gowns. It’s all the glamour of a gown, with all the warmth and comfort of a sweater!

This look is supposed to somehow be inspired by America’s pioneer days…… but it just looks like Darth Vader glowing blue plastic wrap:
