Leandra Medine vs Suzy Menkes
Here’s Leandra Medine (aka the Man Repeller) rocking her golden mustard suit at the Rodarte Fall 2013 show. Her closing essay on Fashion Week (“Blog is a Dirty Word”) presented a very articulate counterpoint to Suzy Menkes’ T Magazine piece, “The Circus of Fashion”. Suzy’s piece received 42 comments whereas Leandra received a whopping 132, but who’s keeping count? The debate about the new army of bloggers and their validity is a powerful one, so give both articles a chance. Lots of truth is expressed in each.
