Double Trouble V

A 'False Encyclopaedia' double feature with Jacky Kerouac, discussing:
Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2016

The digital pirate queen could become the most central, feminine figure of our times. Isolated life wisdom, exploration of the unknown, existence beyond facts. Some kind of anti ideologist. Stealing, collecting, loving. Wafting above all autistic coolness is a free-spiritied mind, levitating towards the future. I am over the reactionary 90s aesthetics of the total apocalypse.
But the pirate queen and her bohème are here to stay.

The mixed martial arts of high and low fashion. Ghesquière mixing the superflat with the cyber punk with the obscene - all of it presented as luxury targeted towards a Grimes-listening twitch-watching clientele. Let’s hope mommy’s gonna buy it.
