This past Paris Fashion Week left me underwhelmed, but I still wanted to review it with the journalist Philippe Pourhashemi, as has become our new tradition. But when I reached out to Philippe, I found out that there was actually someone who was dispirited even more than I was. “Eugene, we can’t talk about Rick Owens for an hour,” he told me, politely declining the podcast offer. I mean, I could, but he had a point. I did like a couple of more collections – TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist and Dries Van Noten – but apart from these usual suspects, it was hard to argue with Philippe. “It’s simply not worth talking about,” he said. Fair enough. So, if you want to know what we thought about this PFW – we are treating you to 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence as homage to John Cage. It’s a special Eugene Rabkin remix, so you get to hear me clacking away on my keyboard as I write a new article. C’est la vie!
