Show review Cheap Monday fw 2009

Cheap Monday brought the recession out in the open by opening their show yesterday with models wearing bags, hats, ties and even guitars made out of cardboard. A refreshing and humorous take on the much-debated financial crisis. The recession feel was underlined with trashed and torn jeans that looked as if they had just been repaired with pieces of gaffer tape. The color chart was in dark, rusty hues and oily blues – a suitable and safe choice for the A/W season. Boyfriend fitted blazers and oversized cape coats teamed up with tight, cropped jeans was for the girls. The boys’ look was loose and antifit with big coats, knitwear and chinos. Although one could have hoped for a little more renewal, Cheap Monday still faced the facts of the crisis and presented a recession concept with jest and humor.
