Paris Fashion Week is in full swing and it’s been smokin’ hot (no seriously, there were actually flames). But in case those Balenciaga space sweaters or Fabergé eggs aren’t really your thing, here’s a trend you can easily pull off by piling on everything you own at once and calling it a day:
In fact, this is a look by A.F. Vandevorst that you can probably recreate pretty easily with stuff you already have! Hat? Check. Overwhelmingly huge circle scarf? Check. Trench coat? Check. Single glove? Check!! The key is to make sure that absolutely NO part of your face is showing at any time…or any part of your body for that matter. Blindly feeling your way down the street is really the only way to go this season.
Here’s what I don’t get. In theory, these pieces are all super wearable. Who doesn’t love to bundle up in warm chunky knits and riding boots? The fur scarves are beautiful, and the hats, while a bit cliche, do add some polish. So why, WHY, did the Belgian design duo An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx go ruin everything with crazy styling? I mean, sure, fashion shows are meant to be fun and create buzz, but they’re also supposed to show….fashion. As in things people actually want to wear. Gimmicks are cool and all, but at the end of the day what are you selling?
