How could Jeremy Scott top last fall’s chandelier dresses? With cut-out fashion that ensures your looks will always be perfectly pressed, shadowed and stainless. His spring collection was a fun, funny take on fashion verisimilitude. How do you reinvent the trench? Like this…
All time classic looks—’50s cocktail dresses and sirens, Le Smoking and even plain old bikinis, underwear and t-shirts—were sketched out on stiff materials and accented with the little paper tabs that instantly recall our childhood paper doll games. Everything was perfect…sort of. That Le Smoking? Actually a gown.
When the clothes were real, like LBDs, the prints reflected the trompe l’oeil paper details.
With humour, this kind of dressing gives us the chance to put our most surreal foot forward. Or in some cases, thighs like Gigi’s and abs like Naomi’s, as model-esque skin was part of the trompe l’oeil.
The faux fashion looked most fun on hyper femme dresses and gowns, like the kind Monroe wore over the subway grate. There was enough volume and ruffling to fill any little fashion-loving girl’s heart.
