"gris" means gray -

gris actually IS the french word for gray,
so that's not just a pretty headline up there, it's the truth.


but in addition, i've noticed a surge in the color
(perhaps the mood, too)
in fashion recently.

i kind of adore it.

from lanvin pre-fall (above)
to kate moss en-route (below)

even the extremes of fashion seem to be playing into the trend.
witness the evolution of the banker-stripe gray flannel suit,

the conservative gray trench,

(i say mais oui)
and, well,
how does one describe rick owens' work?
(i heard glamour + grunge = glunge)

the evolution of dishabille . . .
luxe, ragged, and perfect.
