If you’re like us, fashion week just hasn’t been the same since Cathy Horyn resigned from The Times, but last night she made a return of sorts to chime in on PFW. We were on Twitter when @CathyHorynNY kept popping into our feed with her opinions on the recent shows in Paris. We’ve put together some highlights of her Twitter tête-à-tête with writer Max Berlinger to get her two cents on Paris Fashion Week, Gaultier, and Kimye. Overdue for a Cathy fix? Coming right up…
“@Berlinger: Thoughts on #PFW @CathyHorynNY?” Tops were Vuitton for staying a course but w more to reward the eye, and a Paris knowingness”
“@ttlovesactually: @TheMadamEditor @CathyHorynNY why does the media love Kimye? WHYYYY? It is a puzzle. Kimye & family hard to compete with
“@Berlinger: @CathyHorynNY Do you think the web has hurt or helped fashion criticism as a form?” Jury is still out but so far it’s hurting.
@minniemelange: @Berlinger I’d be interested in yr thoughts on Chanel finale, @CathyHorynNY. My knickers are not in a twist. It’s a show!
@OkramOknej: @CathyHorynNY @Berlinger: What about Dries?” Feel we’ve been down this path a bit. Though loved some of the skimmy dresses
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY what did you make JPG news?” Very sensible! Fame lasts for no one. And JPG has done genius HC, so now he’s free
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY when reviewing, what helped most? show, showroom, interview?” Interviews not so helpful unless KL, Miuccia, Raf
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY when reviewing, what helped most? show, showroom visit, interview?” A quiet showroom visit, as in “leave me be!
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY Yes! What were ur Paris standouts?” Also CRAZY about Rei K! Abstraction at new level. Like a John Chamberlain!
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY any1 surprise you? any trends you like?” Oh I’m terrible on trends! Fringe? Haha
“@MattAraGoulet: I like to imagine @Berlinger & @CathyHorynNY’s recaps on a Brooklyn fire escape w the two ciggies.” Cld be arranged!
“@Berlinger: .@CathyHorynNY do you think fashion ability to shock? Like YSL or Dior making front page news? ”Absolutely! I’m an optimist!”
