Don't forget, Alexander Wang is live streaming his show today at 5pm EST (in about 2 hours). You can watch it at SHOWstudio, or if you're in New York you can watch it as it's projected onto the massive screen outside the American Eagle Outfitters at 46th and Broadway. For other shows doing live streams that Freja could possibly walk in, refer to this old post.
So as you all know by now, Freja did not walk in Rag & Bone yesterday night. But neither did a lot of regulars like Coco, Lily, Stam, Sheila, Maryna and Karolin. The direction of the casting went a lot younger and fresher, which I feel is inevitable for a brand expanding and getting as much hype as R&B is getting. Anyway, we'll just have to see if Freja shows up for Alex's show.
I have a gut feeling that she might be taking this season a little easy. And good for her if she is, because she obviously needs the break. 2009 was a busy year for her in terms of print work and runway work. She also traveled with Karl, seemingly everywhere he went, all over the world. So I wouldn't blame her for wanting to be more relaxed and selective about her runway work now. Especially seeing as some of her other peers are doing the same thing (Lily, Lara, Stam, Sasha). Hopefully we'll see her today, and then I think we'll only see her at Marc on Monday, Derek, Marc by Marc and Narciso on Tuesday, and Michael on Wednesday. Maybe another surprise show somewhere, but I really think that will be it, and I feel like I'm even being too hopeful here.
What do you think? Bets on what shows she walks in? On whether she shows up in NY again? On whether she makes it to London this season? On whether she disappears like she did during SS08 and SS09? I hope not because she'll be leaving lots of fans disappointed.
