There are a lot of things in my brain right now, angling for space, and I know that, ideally, I would be reserving my time, energy and bandwidth for important topics like repealing the 8th amendment or discussing how Conor McGregor has let us all down, but honestly the news of Britney Spears and Kenzo pairing up for a fashion collection has warmed my heart such that I thought it pertinent to share.
I’ve missed the boat on this a bit – news of the collection dropped at the end of March – but trying to stay on top of fashion and/or celebrity news is a bust these days anyway, so here we are.
It’s very 1980s, all big hair and brighter-than-brights, which reminds me of that scene in Crossroads (aka the world’s best film) wherein Britters dances around on her bed, singing along to Madonna. Sure, why not…
There’s no real point in discussing prices or availability because chances are, if you’re going to be buying into the Britney Spears and Kenzo collaboration, you know where to buy Kenzo, and you don’t need to worry about prices. (Bully for you.) Plus, Google is your friend.
Another fun factoid is that Levi is now suing them – something to do with a tab on a pocket that I don’t quite understand, but that might have put a dampener on things for both Britney Spears and Kenzo. #prayforBritney
Anyway, when you find your heart sinking because all there is in the news is badness, the US President is genuinely terrifying (and seems genuinely inept) and you’ve finished Wild Wild Country on Netflix, take comfort in the fact that finally high fashion is recognising Queen Britney – perhaps finally she will have the revival she deserves.
