At the Peter Pilotto show I was struck by the visual impact of the “x effect” that he incorporated into several of his dresses. Â As you can see in the pictures above, this design detail draws the eye in from both the hips and shoulders to give the appearance of an even more narrow waist. Â In short – it makes you look ten pounds lighter!
Later in Milan, I saw the effect in real life on a young lady before the Marni show. Â As you can see,Â the draping of the print creates a vanishing point that enhances the slimming “x effect.”
