…And the rest.
And speaking of wrapping things up…
This is for the chic martial artist who wants to be sassy and wear her brown belt ON HER HEAD.
These two worked well together but the simmering egos just under the surface made us think things were going to explode any minute.
We really liked the sketch but somehow it’s not working as well on the model. They seemed to stick pretty close to the original design but those kimono sleeves really make it and they kind of fall flat in the final product.
In fact, those aren’t kimono sleeves at all, are they?
God, it’s like they shoot these models in dark alleys somewhere. Would it kill them to turn on some lights now and then?
We defended brown tights yesterday for Kit’s outfit and that means our quota is used up for the next year. We can’t go two days in a row defending tights or we won’t be able to look at ourselves in the mirror.
It’s just a flat, bleh kinda look. Not particularly flattering in real life and not nearly as chic as the sketch implied. Terrible accessories, too.
And the Jiffy Pop hair didn’t help.
“Oh, Anita! It is so beautiful! Tonight is my first real dance as an AMERICAN girl!”
Ricky sez: “My intention wasn’t for the dress to be pretty pretty as it was already pretty. I needed an edge to it, so I made a belt. This was the second piece.”
Well Ricky, unfortunately adding a riding crop to it means it’s just a pretty dress with a riding crop. We’ll wait for you to finish crying before we continue.
Jack sez: “Ricky has the sickest model.”
We say: “Jack, we totally agree that Lea is the best model so far this season, but we’re alarmed that a 37-year-old man is trying to sound like a 16-year-old skaterat. Stop that.”
He’s a Muscle Mary from Chelsea!
And he’s a Muscle Papi from Escondido!
Together, they fight fashion crimes on BICEPS & BIAS CUTS, a fabulous new series this fall on LOGO!
Don’t get us wrong, we loved this dress. Beautiful detail on the neckline and lovely proportions on the little sleeves.
The belt’s a big “enh” for us. Nothing really wrong with it and we get the idea of mixing pieces with a slight edge to them with pieces that are conventionally pretty, but for the most part the overall effect was a bit bland.
Pretty, but bland. We’ll give it up for the muscleboys for working well together and producing a cute, very retailable garment.
Actually, we don’t really need an excuse to give it up for muscleboys.
