Juicy Couture at the V&A

IMG_00601.jpg

I went to see The Golden Age of Couture exhibition at the V&A. Before going in I had a look at the permanent fashion gallery and I never expected to see a Juicy Couture tracksuit in the V&A, but there it was… I actually like these tracksuits but I don’t think they should be worn in public unless you’re a model, on your way to a shoot. There are several benefits when a model wears a tracksuit to a shoot: it doesn’t leave any elastic marks so her skin looks smooth and there is less retouching to be done. Also the model is warm & cozy while she gets her hair and make-up done, and the jacket has a front zip so she doesn’t have to lift it over her head and ruin her hair! But really why would anyone wear a velour tracksuit on the streets of central London? I hate it when I see girls on Oxford Street with big logos on their bum and they’re usually wearing knockoffs and a fake LV bag – which is even worse. Maybe it’s just that they want to feel like a model or a celebrity for a day…

    The V&A has just lost all credability in my books. Juicy “Couture” is not Couture
