Happy Friday! Today, we have another installation of Catalog Police, where I critique lookbooks and catalogs currently hitting both our mailboxes and inboxes. My goal? To take a cold, hard look at fashion marketing in all its glorious ridiculousness.
This week’s victim is Wildfox Couture, which recently dropped its Spring 2015 lookbook. As the New York Times noted this week, retailers are increasingly using catalogs and lookbooks to sell you a lifestyle — not just clothes. To wit, the Wildfox lookbook included lots of non-clothing content for glampers — including a guide for egg hunting and a recipe for home-brewed wine.
But let’s stick to the clothes for now. Here’s my take.
