Recession Fashion: Acne’s patchwork dress

Patchwork_dress

Just in case you haven’t noticed, times are tough for a lot of people right now. In fact, times are so tough that the designers at Acne have clearly been reduced to using the off-cuts they found on the cutting room floor to put together this dress icon. The Fashion Police certainly admire this ‘Make Do and Mend’ spirit, but we’re a little confused by the price – £385 for something that looks like it was patched together during wartime? We don’t think so.

What about you, though, readers? Would you buy this?

    No. if I wanted that look, I’d just dig through my mom’s scrap box next to her sewing machine and make the exact same thing for absolutely nothing. But I don’t want that look.

    Ugh – I’d sooner wear their ankle-flairs.

    Actually, I almost really like it. I’m not to sure about the mumsy looking fabrics, but with a pair of black tights and some cool platforms it would look really good. It looks like it’s cut really well too.

    The mix of patterns makes me dizzy and the model isn’t to flattering in my opinion.

    Boring cut, but the pattern is addorable.
