Well, wrap me up in bandages!
That's a "no", by the way.
I can think of many, many other ways to spend $2,500.00!
I would have gladly worn this in my 20's - the armpit! new/old erogenous zone! But -heh heh - cannot imagine wearing it now that I'm over 60. Buy and put away for my first romantic dinner with new suitor in the nursing home?
Gucci has for a good while made clothes for a very specific customer. I can recall when it was a rather classic label, but they do not want us. I don;t even go in the local boutique to look at accessories, it's kind of an unconscious boycott.
Hee. I've actually been enamored of this dress for quite a while now ... although I cannot IMAGINE an event that would necessitate something so peek-a-boo.
I believe that because it is shown in white, it does resemble an all over body cast. However, in black, it would be much more interesting to me. That does NOT mean that I would wear it though!
why ever not??just kidding.looks like a child's snowflake craft.
Aw, but I bet there are things that DO speak to you. Let's see one of those.
What kills me about fashion is, as soon as one can afford it, one is 'too old' to wear it. I mean, how many women who are a size 0 can afford that dress? And just out of curiosity, where will they wear it? Thanks doll,The Glamorous Housewife
Well after all the damn gladiator sandals, what do you expect? This is the post-Coliseum look! [Hmmmm, do I smell a Tina-Turner-in-Mad Max revival?]
I wouldn't wear it in any color but especially not white.
I could not imagine myself in something like this-ever. But there are surely lots of dresses, skirts, tops, etc. which I could imagine myself in; not to mention the accessories!
At our age, boing a size 0 would not mean you could wear that dress! But, I would have loved it in my 20's. It just occurred to me that when we were in our 20's, the women who were in their 50's and 60's had the same fashion issues. I think that was the beginning of the youth culture.
Looks like a toddler got loose with a pair of scissors lol!
I hear you! My subscription to Vogue needs to be renewed, and I've decided to just say no. It's so irrelevant to my style now.
Well, that's it. I'm not speaking to Fashion until they apologize.
Designers are targeting the younger audience agreed. Aren't we are the demographic with the cash to lay down on a superior garment should it strike our fancy? I believe that we are derssing our current bodies and not those of fantasy! Having said that I would guess most of us would want it to last many seasons...CPW "investment piece? "I wonder which design house Helen Mirren shops, and Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep for that matter...they look lovely and not Dowdy or Mumsy.This is verbose, but you struck a chord here!
Totally HOT if you're a model, though. Which is pretty much the way most "high fashion" strikes Miss J.
They may be targeting some kind of younger audience with lots of $$$$€€€€££££ etc but none of my younger friends, although some are keenly interested in applied arts and design. I see this on a tries-too-hard 40-something than a real youth.
BTW, Miss Pseu, feel free to expand on this theme... you has a tag at Miss J's Place.
It's amazing what is defined as "high fashion". I guess if a famous designer creates something and sticks a high price tag on it, it's considered high fashion, no matter how unappealing to the masses. I agree with the other ladies, you can only get away with it if your young and a size 0.
Truthfully, I wouldn't even have wanted to wear this when I was twenty and much thinner. Just not my thing.
I think this is marvelous. Isn't this what capital-F Fashion is *supposed* to be? Something not necessarily everyone would go for but that may influence other things later? Don't you think our great-grandmothers looked at all the New Look clothes and screeched about how nobody could wear this stuff? Same stuff, different day...And legatta? I am a 40-something who would *rock* this dress, without trying very hard at all.
Dites moi vos pensées...
