Picks and Pans Review: Fashion 2001

by Lucille Khornak

Nineteen years from now, will the fashionable woman swim in pink socks with toes? Will she go roller-skating in a beribboned fencer's mask? Will she wear nothing but a big party hat and a colorful flower painted on her bare back? Will the shoulders of her dresses make her look like a football player in pads? Will young men have red and purple lightning streaks painted on their cheeks? These wild ideas were created for this book by such familiar designers as Diane Von Furstenberg, Courrèges, Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Geoffrey Beene, Armani, Givenchy, Zandra Rhodes, Pierre Cardin, Betsey Johnson and dozens of others. The text is silly: "We are like serpents in the garden...we are offering self-knowledge and shame. Lingerie deals with people's feelings of shame and modesty." But the 11½-by-14½-inch, beautifully reproduced photographs of exotic models in weird settings are spectacular. Khornak, a model turned photographer, obviously had fun with this book, and so do we.
