Dear YSL, haven't we seen this before?

Fashion has been so, well, uninspiring lately.

It seems YSL has no imagination this spring.

Hasn't all this been done before?

I mean, I see some 90's Tom Ford for Gucci in there, Ann Demeulmeester, even Nolan Miller ( gasp! ).

Rude yes, but c'est la vie.

With fashion week fast approaching, fiscally sensible fashionistas are desperately seeking DIYs.

With the exception of Isabel Marant, there is a severe deficit in Do It Yourself runway re-designs...

...which led me to a new low.

While I was researching and re-searching Spring SS/13 collections, then Fall 2012, Spring 2012 and so on, I ended up as far back as Alexander Wang's Fall 2008 collection before I even got excited.

Wearing 2008 in 2013?

Normally, that's never the look.

But I meeeeaaaaannnnnn look at this sweatshirt!

It has a whole new meaning with the lack of imagination in couture today.

It's so unchic ( because it's 2008 ), it's actually chic again.

Which I predict will be the new chic at Fashion Week.

I think I'm on to something here.

Rachel Weiz in Rodarte Vogue 2008. Sexy,

soft and spiky.

Rodarte X Christian Loubotuin heels...

I have no idea who you are, what you're wearing today or whether or not your iphone is white ( a plus ), but if you are looking for designer DIYs, seasons past is where it's at.
