Grenouille #23 - Bird (Women) (from Way Back)
I wish to report that regarding the current body fad, Etienne and I are of one accord. The masters of fashion have sold us all a poisson magnifique, in a white wine sauce, but delivered a stale goldfish cracker. To what are we referring? The current obsession with "skinny." Why does so much fashion look like it was made to adorn the handles of mops? It is a return to the fashion of famine? It is a look we find tres jolie, tres charmant? It is a happy association with the Americain game played by bored children which is called "hangman"? Are curves criminal?
For those who claim to love the form of las femmes, and wish to adorn it, should it be said that they lacked courage to love as much woman as they could? Is it not greater mastery to create fashion for women of all shapes and sizes? Are curves perhaps too difficile? The designers perhaps missed the lessons on creating for round shapes?
