Ripping the Collections: Sweet P, Part 2
And the clunks just keep on coming.
Ignoring the ugly plaid (which is nigh-impossible for us), that top doesn’t seem to go with it at all, and the silhouette just ain’t all that. The pants are weirdly balloony. Had they been a full straight-leg trouser or a skinny pant, we could have gotten behind this look more, but as it is…nope.
And the gloves just don’t work with this look.
Lorenzo really liked this look, but Tom was only halfway there. It’s…interesting. A nice shape and color, but that’s about it. We kept waiting for her to unzip and show us what’s underneath but apparently that’s the entire look.
OhmiGOD. This is AWFUL. The hat, gloves and black hose coupled with that color call to mind a bad eighties bridesmaid look. The length and silhouette are unattractive and for god’s sake, why would she send this girl down the runway in this dress sans bra?
Back on track. A very pretty dress in a very pretty color. We like the detail on the neckline. If it didn’t have those weird saddlebags that Sweet P insists on, it would be perfect.
An almost-but-not-quite. A nice design and a beautiful fabric, but that bust seems way off to us. It camouflages her chest rather than highlighting or enhancing it. And again, the gloves do nothing for the outfit.
Leah’s a good model but even she couldn’t make this work. Again, it’s those horrid saddlebags. We don’t get that at all. No woman in the world would want that effect. Even without them, the design is fairly plain and uninspired. A strange look to end the show on.
In the end, the collection had some serious problems but her high points were enough to surprise us. Sometimes Sweet P makes pretty clothes that woman would want to wear and sometimes she heads off the rails into ugly town. Like her work during the competition, this collection was highly erratic and left us wondering just who she is as a designer, which is exactly the opposite result one would want from a collection.
