Fendi’s petal trimmed dress – not for the body conscious

Fendi_dress Fendi’s petal trimmed dress is the latest in a growing line of clothing items that seem designed to make their wearers look chunkier around the middle than they actually are – the Moschino ruffle dress we featured earlier this year dress is another.

Now, we’re not saying that all clothes should be tight and figure hugging, of course – far from it! – but we just can’t understand why people would want to wear something that would make them look like Chewbacca’s slightly more fashion-forward girlfriend.

Or, indeed, why you’d pay £1610 for that privilege.

Anyone care to shed some light for us?

    this would look great with those Margiela boots though. And maybe a red patent leather belt to define the waist. I can see it.

    It looks like bubbles, I’d just want to give anyone wearing that a squeeze round the waist to force all the air out!
