I'm really sick of 'progressive' designers 'pushing the envelope' by creating totally impractical items that cannot be worn off the runway. It's nice to see new twists on classic, wearable items ... like this calico jumper.
It seems to be a bigger creative task to take on a classic. It's not as challenging, in my mind, to create an avant-garde jersey wrap tunic concoction that (when pinned perfectly in place) looks okay on the runway. It's takes true innovation, and a true desire to make a woman look good, to make a basic jumper look so fresh and young.
