Happy Hangovers! Since we’ve spent the last few weeks looking back, we thought we’d take a little time this fine morning to look forward. Herewith, twelve fashionable, if not entirely serious predictions we have for the year to come.
Anna Wintour will end the fashion week scheduling drama by putting her boot-clad foot down and demanding that the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, British Fashion Council and Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture all do the following: Get over themselves, act like adults, and sit down in the same room at the same time to figure this thing out instead of faxing condescending international communiques to each other.
Based on the strength of his ultra steezy outerwear collaboration with Canada Goose, Canadian goose Drake will finally realize his dream of designing sweaters for Missoni. He will more than likely be offered a deal with the Italian fashion house after “accidentally” running into Margherita Missoni at Pitti Uomo and doing an “impromptu” rendition of Fancy in her honor.
Britney Spears will re-hire Monique Lhuillier (who designed her first wedding dress) to design the dress she wears when she marries Jason Trawick. We will more than likely be surprised when it turns out to be our favorite wedding dress of ever. The end.
Carine Roitfeld will launch a new magazine. She will tout it as a revolutionary combination of print and web. It will be neither, but it will be full of crazy, sexy, cool photo shoots. We will still love it.
Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Louboutin will resolve the red sole trademark infringement case in private arbitration. Which means we won’t know exactly how they’ll reach an agreement, but at some point during 2012, the two companies will finally work things out. We hope.
Kanye West will indeed still try to make this fashion thing happen. God bless him.
