I know it's easy to poke fun at fashion - but let's!
Take the spring 2012 Marni collection (photos from fashionetc.com).
Fabrics, textures, colours and patterns - some lovely, some a bit whimsical and at the very least v. original. The shapes are a bit funny. Those slips or knickers, not sure. I love organza, and I love slips, and slips showing, so perhaps the beige might look nicer in real life.
But, sorry, these socks totally made my day - and my list of Fashion LOLz! (photo from style.com) Sometimes a fashion crime should remain a fashion crime and attempts to make them otherwise by putting them on the runway should be resisted.
