Style on Trial: Roksanda Ilincic asymmetric ruffle dress

Roksanda-Ilincic-ruffle-dre

We absolutely love this dress. To look at, that is. (And possibly to touch. We don't know why, but it somehow looks like it would feel nice, no?) It really is a work of art, no? You can tell a whole lot of work has gone into creating those giant ruffles, and that's presumably one of the factors that justify the £2,205 price tag.

As for wearing it, though – well, that's a whole other matter altogether, and and we're tempted to think that we'd both look and feel like a flower with this on: and we don't mean that in a good way, unfortunately. We'd really love to see someone try it, though – and by "someone" we mean "someone other than a model". Models don't count.

What do you think, though? Do you love the look of this, or do you think it would make for a very expensive crime of fashion? Tell us!

    For that price I want two sleeves.
    Or none.
    Just not getting the single sleeve look…

    First order of business would be to 86 that sleeve, toute suite…the rest is quite nice.

    I’m not a fan; good idea, but the result is too ’80s matador for me.

    It’s very pretty, but I think it would only work on a tall, glamazon type such as Charlize Theron.

    The dress is a bit OTT for me, but the colour, oh lordy the colour is beautiful!

    I think this is kind of weird. not my style,I don’t like these “different” stuff.
    If the ruffles and this sleeve wasn’t there,it would be lovely.
    But,it’s not THAT bad….the colour is nice!
    These shoes are really strange,but i liked the heel.
