The Age’s Sarina Lewis reports:

Amid the cacophony of Paris Fashion Week, the opening of a new Louis Vuitton store on the Champs Elysees, the (literally) forested runways of Kenzo, and Lagerfeld’s neon-lit catwalk, Melbourne-born designer Martin Grant’s gentile, invitation only little soiree could have gone unnoticed.

Only gentiles were invited? This French anti-Semitism is way out of control.

(Via Andrew Richards, who writes: “Anyone who knows the Paris rag trade as I do will realise that this must have been a very small party.”)

    1. I’m more annoyed at the lack of a hyphen between “invitation” and “only.”

    1. This is why spell-check will never take the place of eyes-on proofreading.  Which is becoming a lost art, obviously.

    1. Boy, Sy Feigenbaum the Knock-Off King down in the NY garment district (“I can do what Givenchy does a thousand times, and for ten cents on his dollar!) would never get away with that mishegoss, gonif of a schmatte dealer tho’ he be…

    1. This is what happens when a writer starts flinging fancy words around as if he were spreading fertilizer pellets. Very deleterious to the attempted aesthetic effect, not to mention dangerously luxating to the cognitive procedure. Or something.

    1. At least Lagerfeld’s catwalk was neon-lit. Not neocon-lit. Or citroen-lit.

      If I weren’t living proof of the troof of this statement, I’d attempt to make some lame joke about it.
