If you could get a sewing pattern from your favorite designer in the world who would that be?
Pierre Balmain, Chanel, Chloe, Fendi, Krizia? Karl Lagerfeld has designed for all of these design houses in the past and these two looks are available for download this month if you’re ready to take on a fashion challenge a la Lagerfeld.
The elongated-front jacket is certainly an article of originality— what do you think of this look? It reminds me of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome with the over-exaggerated shoulder pads and overall girth. The front panels seem to fold upwards and button up underneath the armholes— perhaps leaving the panels hanging down would create a cool look?
The mini skirt seems more approachable (than the jacket at least) to the masses— well, the hemline could easily be lengthened for those who are not in the habit of donning a mini, and perhaps removing the folded-up hemline you could get a nice knee-length look? I would like to try this skirt in a waffle pique like the sample above, but I’d wear it with a soft blouse or t-shirt and cardigan, to dress it down a bit.
