Scherrer's Nostalgia for Days Gone By
PARIS, March 7, 2005 - When a show begins with a soundtrack referencing
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, you can pretty much guess what's in
store. The brat pack lives on, at least in Scherrer's boutique
collection, which was seemingly inspired by 60s memorabilia. Try
a raspberry suit tied up with big bows, or the oversize buttons
that stood out on an overcoat, and you might have had a flashback
to the era of the Kennedy White House. Floppy hats and head bands
made a statement, as did all the trimmings - that being copious
amounts of silver fox and mink, and sparkling, sparkling brooches.
Perhaps the lyrics "your own personal
Jesus", were added because the show was staged on a Sunday morning, because
most of what Stéphane Rolland sent down the catwalk did not look destined
for a church pew.
