    I'm intrigued. From the sounds of it, the masstige line is a whole new line as opposed to a retooling or redefinition of his eponymous line, akin to Zac Posen's Z Spoke line. I can see items from recent Karl Lagerfeld collections translating to a masstige line.

    Are you referring to the canceled show or the masstige line?

    I think his self-titled line was always the one he used for the more creative and modern designs that didn't suit Chanel and Fendi. Now, those two brands are evolving and I can see much of his recent Karl Lagerfeld work finding a place in Chanel or Fendi collections. I can also see some of the simpler or less expensive-looking pieces fitting into a "masstige" line. Although I have no idea what to expect, I do not have anything against this decision.

    I really missed the fact that there was no KL, this season, but I think the above quote says it all, unfortunately.

    As we've reached a point where the vast majority of the money in the world is in the hands of just a very few, ridiculously wealthy, people (many of whom may not even have much interest in fashion!), it certainly doesn't bode well for the R-T-W industry.

    A healthy economy is only possible when there is a large and healthy middle-incomed portion of society and that is simply not the case, anymore.

    Of course, what did we think would happen if capitalism was left to run almost completely unchecked?

    The inevitable outcome (and in fact, the entire point) of capitalism is that, rather like Monopoly, eventually, one person 'wins' and leaves everyone else with nothing (or next-to-nothing).

    Oh well...
