The talk around John Galliano's surprise appointment to Maison Martin Margiela has been how unlikely a choice it has been. John the opulent, the lover of grandeur, so baroque unto an almost costume extreme… at the brutally conceptualist and intellectual Margiela? The punters are mystified at how…inappropriate an aesthetic choice this appointment is. But is it?

SPUR JAPAN's SNAP PERFECT MODELS

As long as there is fashion, there will be models.As long as there is fashion, there will be models.

Well that Japanese way of putting words together…it sometimes summarizes the sentiment in lyrical ways everyday English won't. I loved working with the Spur team on the 100 page booklet that essentially archived the magazine's 25 year history of model coverage. From the early days of off duty 90's supermodels like Linda, Nadja and Naomi, it was funny to see how on-duty that ideal of off-duty was.

And then it was especially odd to see my 7 years of Spur It-Girl archives encapsulated in this one booklet. The magazine's editors assured me there is a generation of young Japanese women who grew up reading that column, which can only make you appreciative of the clarity of time . And its perspective, as well as future business potential. There they were, starting from Agyness Deyn at the height of her cultural impact, all the way to Issa Lish, now at the rise of her cultural impact. In between there were Freja and Irina, Coco and Hilary, Anja, Suvi, Catherine, Kasia, Lara, Meghan, Abbey, Toni, Malgosia, Karmen, Fei, Fei, Lindsay and Arizona. That those girls have forged lasting careers is not only a testament to brilliant management on the part of great agents, but also to the tenacity and resilience of those girls in keeping their value in a tough, tough industry.

In its 25 years of existence , Spur , a magazine published by the ,massive Shueisha media empire in Japan has become a powerhouse in its home market. It has also been model mad that entire time, from its early covers Kate Moss (1995) and Carolyn Murphy (1996) to the most recent era of Daria (2006), Gemma, Agyness (2007) and Freja (2010),

FASHION THAT ADMITS TO AN EMOTION.

There was something that took flight in this Dior SS 15 showing that moved Simons into the realm of the historic.There was something that took flight in this Dior SS 15 showing that moved Simons into the realm of the historic.

Do you notice how emotional fashion people have been this season? The ennui that made an emotional vacuum of the anti-spectacle of the Marc Jacobs. Tears at the Prada. Awe at the Dior. And then there was Phoebe Philo's honest and (gasp) heartfelt expression of uncertainty..or what Philo described to style.com as "being aware of the connection between creativity and risk".

As fashion has blurred faster and faster, moving now, almost at the speed of light, or at least fiber optic cables, it has felt as if it had also gotten more cynical. What used to be a tight little hermetic circle of taste and cool has been blown open to something of a mob scene with a lot of carelessness and crassness to go with it. But the true talent that anchor this industry had always held themselves to principles of both passion and excellence.
