Dads, brides and bankers: How Vetements showed a collection of people at couture spring 2017
And youth wasn't a prerequisite

Vetements? Couture? Before you raise a furore about how ripped Champion hoodies and cut-and-sew jeans are hardly the pinnacle of craft, let's get the fundamentals sorted: Vetements might be commanding a runway on Paris' haute schedule, but simply as a guest to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. If you will, a sobering pitstop in the whirlwind of glamour and grandeur. Given the label's slant that clothes are well, just clothes, the message of its fall/winter 2017 collection was simple: An all-inclusive, tongue-in-cheek statement opposing the decadence of high fashion. Derived from a laundry list of 'Stereotypes' and best consumed like a shot of Bloody Mary on Sunday morning; in full pedestrian glory and knocked back without a second thought. 


To drive home the point, their line-up of 'real people' of all ages casually descended the escalator in this season's show location — the Centre Pompidou in Paris — and trotted with purpose through the audience of press and buyers. At once on the nose and unapologetically ordinary.
