Designer Sing Chin Lo for Plotz’s S/S ’10 collection centres around Narcissus. Haughty airs and graces and preening in the mirror are not necessary, however, sinceit’s the geometric construction with incoporated folds and straps that Lo is focusing on as part of her search for "unspoken beauty"…. which means a lot of folds, straps, and sharp lines.
A triangular sleeve like this needs to be investigated more, if only for the sole reason that I can say "Do you like my triangular sleeves…? They’re ISOSCELES!".
I think I may have done something like this with masking tape in D.T. class one time, except I was fidgeting out of boredom and defacing a school desk, and this is actually a wearable top.
The criss-cross legging has popped up again, but I like the fact that Plotz’s version is a little looser and prevents the oh so unsightly bulging thigh problem.
Speaking of bulging thighs, this is a case where billowing around the thigh seems to work, oddly enough.
The messy thread bag that Plotz has been doing for a few seasons pops up again in a black/white combo.
