Sometimes you need to put safety ahead of looking fabulous. Like, sensibly deciding to wear trainers instead of 8-inch stilettos to walk to the dairy: safety first! Mr Lagerfeld agrees. "It's yellow, it's ugly, it doesn't go with anything. But it could save your life." So when you next decide to give your driver the night off and take your car for a spin down a lonely country road, and you break down/ get a flat tyre: put on a safety vest before you attempt to fix said car/ change said tyre. In your tuxedo. With sunglasses on. At night. Remember to leave all your lights on and walk way down the road while the car battery drains. Aaah, fashion people: know their warps from their wefts, can't change a tyre. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the ad where Jean Paul Gaultier wears a library monitor badge and reminds us all to use a bookmark instead of folding the pages back.
