Unfinished Business: PROENZA SCHOULER’s three-quarter length dress

The Proenza Schouler team apparently took the terms “three quarter length” dress a little too literally here: looks like they got three quarters of the way through making it, then thought, “Ah, what the hell, let’s open a few beers instead!”

What’s strange about this is that three-quarters of the dress doesn’t mean three-quarters of the price, and this retails for £450: not bad for three quarters of a day’s work! Nice work if you can get it, guys, and if you can get it, well, you may as well just keep on doing it, and maybe even charge as much as £760 for it, no?

    I actually think these are really pretty!! The magenta one is a bit nicer-looking than the navy, but they’re both interesting ideas. They remind me of 1910’s and 1920’s dresses with all that wonderful sheer fabric.

    Somehow the whole pattern of the dress; combo of fabrics; nothing is of my taste!!! 🙁

    I think they look like what a first semester design student would create for a school contest. It’s not a real clothes.

    The navy one is just HIDEOUS, but the magenta one is O.K. of course, only in you take off the sheer fabric. I mean, honestly, has today’s designers lost their brains?? -Moi
