FWQ: cesar gaupo

we know we've been a delinquent blogger, posting sporadically. or only when we can bear to face a computer again after nine hours a day of sitting in front of one with words words words crossing our eyes. so before we go off once again into the real world, we have to post this for posterity. cesar gaupo, saving the best for the last of the fashion watch quartet series (of course this happened last thursday รถ). we love this collection. cesar took a basic silhouette—hourglass—and did magical things with it. he manipulated luscious silk fabrics like clay, molding them into pleats and folds and origami-like details. he cinched the waist with modern interpretations of the obi belt. he mixed brocade upon brocade in a pleasing combination. and we were not the only ones to make the shanghai tang connection (he used to be its creative director). and he made the shoes too!
