Illustrated Guide: What Your Favorite Fashion Designer Says About You (Part II)

Last week, we brought you an Illustrated Guide/pop psychology based on your favorite fashion designer. Here’s what we said:

Here at TheGloss, we love making pointless generalizations about people based on arbitrary preference like their handbags and nail shapes. What you may not know is that there is a hard science behind this. Trust us. In this week’s Illustrated Guide, we’re focusing on fashion: what your favorite designer label says about you (and your soul, etc). Now, a quick clarifying point before we go any further: we don’t mean ladies who know Alessandra Facchinetti from Frida Giannini; we mean those who approach fashion in terms of logos, labels and status. For example, once we met a girl who said Alexander McQueen was her favorite designer and–delighted–we asked why. She said, “He’s just really fresh and fun.” That about sums it up.

This time we took requests. Herewith Part 2.

      Thank you, Gloss, for calling out Michael Kors on his ridiculous and frequent racism.

        Dior doesn’t exactly have an identity right now…

      • Ashley Cardiff

        Yeah, that’s the problem. Dior hasn’t had a real identity since Galliano left (excited for Raf, though!) and I didn’t want to go for the cheap shot and be like, “Dior: You love Hitler!”

      Jil Sander, Calvin Klein, Burberry–please Gloss, can we have some more?

      Comme is my favorite and pants ARE tedious and limiting.
