OPINION – Paris Fashion Week has proven it’s one thing to be provocative, it’s another to just not be very good

Dublin-born 35-year-old McGirr mined McQueen’s 1995 The Birds collection, and backstage spoke of “this idea of anti-politeness. We live in a very polite world at the moment… [McQueen] was doing the opposite of what was happening in mainstream fashion; it was about these people on the fringes, the outsiders”. There were some interesting bits, but polarising ones too: the horse hoof boots for one. If his remit is to throw an off-centre millennial eye towards an emerging Gen Z client then that’s understandable. It was certainly different: whether that turns out to be a positive remains to be seen. It’s one thing to be provocative, it’s another just not to be very good.
