Subway Map Print dress by Francis means you’ll never be lost in New York again

Subway-print-dress

Planning a trip to New York city? Worried you might get just a little bit lost? Worry no more, readers, just slip on the Subway Map Dress by Francis, and you'll have a map of the entire New York subway with you at all times! (If you're going somewhere that happens to be printed on the rear of the dress, though, well, good luck with that…)

What's weird about this one is that we're not even describing it as a crime of fashion. Would you?

BUY: Subway print dress, $186

    That’s kinda neat, actually.

    I think it’s cute. It helps that it’s an attractive dress — good cut, good length, looks good on the model. If I were her size and had $186 to spend on a sundress, I’d buy it.

    I really like the print, actually, but I think the cut is horrid! I hate the new trend of bumped-out midsections on dresses. I understand that it can help hide a bit of a tummy, but it’s pretty bad when it makes the model look like she’s expecting.
    Also, it’s reeeeally short. I’d be terrified of bending over in that dress. I’m not a prude, but I find I seem increasingly modest in comparison with the rest of the world.

    I also actually love the print. It’s slightly whimsical without going over the top. But I agree with Delaney — the cut could be *so* much better.

    I like it. A bit too short for my tastes, but I wouldn’t call it a crime.

    I actually rather love it. And I am gutted that it is only available in a size 12; why must you tease me with an interesting and unusual sundress? xx

    As awful as the concept sounds on paper, it actually looks really cute.
    Although I, too, heartily dislike empire waists (not a new trend, just back again).

    I like it. It’s a very cool, graphic print. I think someone should make an affordable bag or T like that that I can buy. 🙂

    Just love this unique dress! So dull and boring seeing the same fashion prints all the time. Francis puts character into his clothes! Love it!

    I actually rather like it. If it were a little longer and more flattering in the mid-section, I would buy. It’s always nice to have somethng a little quirky for the summer.
