Let's Fold Scarves

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion represents a landmark moment in cinema, ostensibly a Rom Com it actually bears few hallmarks of the genre.  Despite Michele having a love interest - coupled with one of the most epic dance scenes ever created - in good-geek-gone-rich Sandy, he pails into insignificance when compared to the friendship which she shares with Romy and the Happily Ever After moment, is not her wedding or going off into the sunset with the man of her dreams, it is her and her best friend folding scarves in the shop they dreamed of owning.
Now what on earth does this have to do with fashion? we hear you ask. Well have you seen Saint Laurent's AW15 collection?! With references cited from Siouxsie Sioux to a sunset-strip groupie, Hedi Slimane's collection has proved as divisive as ever but love it or loathe it, there's one thing that we are sure of and that is that Hedi Slimane enjoyed Romy and Michele's High School Reunion every bit as much as we did. From the fishnet tights, to the classic prom dress shapes, each piece in the collection would have been equally at home in the film.
