NYFW Redux: Mod Squad

So I'm mucho behind-o on whatever is going on in the various fashion weeks but thankfully I am back in the land of free wifi, so I've started to make a dent on New York's offerings.

It started at Phillip Lim with this three-piece skirt that you could mix and match and swivel to create your own look. And then there was this skirt-on-skirt action going on at Rodarte. And this dress-over-a-skirt thing at Wayne. I thought about it and decided it was kind of like the modular shelving you get at Ikea, where you have a certain number of pieces you can mix and match to create your own personal look. And then I realized, duh, that's what your whole closet is anyway; so much for the modular analogy.

But anyway, point is, we've been layering shirts and jackets and vests for years; we even did that whole dress or skirt over pants or leggings thing for quite some time. But this, ladies and gentlemen, is a revelation. Skirts on top of skirts on top of... skirts. It's like a big same-sex orgy, except instead of guys on top of sweaty other guys or a T&A festival, it's glorious, frivolous, kinky skirts.

  1. The problem with IKEA starts when you get the furniture home and have to assemble it by yourself (thx God for the cheap assembly service!). If you do it yourself, I guarantee you, you'll find either 2-5 bolts and nuts missing or being in excess. I hope it's not the case with your wardrobe. Although I always feel I have 2-5 things missing.
