back to clothing

See, because we're looking at her back... Shhhhuu, moving on.  For the life of me I can't remember whether she said this surf-inspired top was Marc Jacobs Collection or Prada Collection. The Collection part was emblazoned on the gray cells though because we were at a fashion show and it must be perfectly clear that we are not wearing jeans and a t-shirt (fashion shows can only tolerate a certain amount of irony) but rather jeans and the unadulterated sweat of the designer's brow that is The Collection. Not some watered down, malled up Marc by Marc or Prada by Prada thing that was misunderstood by the masses and thus found itself on the sale rack at Macy's along with some Michael by Michael Kors and J by J Lo items.
I would be a lot clearer on whose sweat and whose collection this neoprene-esque top came from if I had not busted up a conversation and rudely taken this unauthorized photo.  In doing retroactive research on neoprene tops -- holy hang ten -- nearly every designer has caught the surf-inspired wave, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel going so far as to put their logos on the tool of the trade. The surfboard.  It's sort of dangerous to write "tool of the trade" and "Karl Lagerfeld" in the same sentence, isn't it?  Could be misconstrued.  As in, Yo, check out the dude with the totally festy white founding fathers 'do going all rank. Grundle, brah.
