I _love_ that your eye caught this. I know it sounds improbable, but one of the centerpieces of the microline I’m constructing are _aprons_… some with just a front panel, some with two panels, front and back, some large, some narrow and short, but all posit the same kind of Roma inspired goodly clash of prints with either the pant, legging or skirts underneath them….
remember the last time sart put the whole picture up of well mixed patterns… everyone missed the patterns and picked the whole outfit apart and did this same thing… Good on you Scott this is beautiful and why we love you!
It’s gutsy. I actually thought of Dries Van Noten’s spring/summer 2008 collection when I first saw this but Etro and Lily Pulitzer seems more fitting. Well on a tangent, I’ve been a great fan of Etro men for a long time but I do hope one day Kean designs a collection for the women.
i dig it very much.. not sure about that belt though, if this is a man.
and what about the sleeves-too-short thing? i’m a pretty tall and lanky guy, and i have this problem sometimes. i feel really conscious that it looks sort of goofy, but an old roommate used to wear stuff too short all the time. he wasnt as into fashion as i am though.
i imagine this is one of those cases where if i saw the entire outfit i’d be totally perplexed by the outfit.
i prefer the cropped shot because it’s more indicative of something really intimate and intricate in the patterns. there’s something in the scale of prints as well, it’s just a little bit perfect that the finer floral print is on the upper body and the fuller jungle print is on the bottom. for some reason the reverse wouldn’t seem nearly as proportionate.
i don’t absolutely love it, but it makes me think.
When I saw the picture of his whole outfit, I must say I was pretty taken-aback. At first glance, the shirt he is wearing for pants reminds me of the wrap that many men in India wear, especially in the southern countries, in the way that the crotch hangs very close to the knee. I immediately thought it ridiculous that he would venture out wearing a shirt with the collar etc intact as pants… But, then I remembered that fashion should always push the envelope and it is the things that seem a little absurd or out of place that are often the most inspiring!
Thank you Sart. for posting the close up of the prints, but I think the entire outfit is equally interesting.
Great eye! These prints just work and is a wonderful brief capsule of what works this spring/summer. You don’t need to see the whole outfit for some reason, and this little picturette just epitomizes the look. Well done.
