Stuck-Together-Clothes Crimes: Marc Jacobs finally learns!

Marc by Marc Jacobs Ida sweater dressAt last!  A designer has sat up and taken notice of what we keep saying about sticking items of clothing together.  If you must do it (and really, is there any reason to do it?) designers, then please take heed of Mr Marc Jacobs.  For he has created a sweater and skirt and cuffs, stuck together only by buttons.  Buttons that unfasten, and give you three separate items of clothing.  We like it, Mr Jacobs.  The dress looks cute as an ensemble and each piece works separately too.  Is this a first?  Stuck together clothes that aren’t actually stuck together?

We like this, but what do you think?  Would you buy a 3-in-1 or would you rather choose the pieces separately?  If you like it you can buy it for $368 at Shopbop.

    I like it. Think the skirt could be a bit longer, and a different pattern for the shirt, but overall it’s nice.

    All 3 pieces look so nice together that I wouldn’t want to unfasten anything. As far as I’m concerned they can be stuck together permanently.

    Finally, a modern designer who knows what they’re doing!

    An ensemble that looks nice together but due to the buttons also has the versatility of being worn separately, more designers/shops should take note :)
