Normally, I’m not too much a fan of avant garde couture clothing. I can appreciate the vision and the workmanship, but if it doesn’t look like something I can snuggle on the sofa and eat chocolate ice cream in, chances are I’m not going to wear it (and if you haven’t already, hop on over to Between Laundry Days to read Kyla of Blue Collar Catwalk’s demand that fashion be comfortable – a girl after my own heart). However, I might make an exception* for the Jun Takahashi “Alice” dress.
Pop on over to the Powerhouse Museum’s Object of the Day blog to read the story of this beautiful, weird, and ultimately kind of creepy dress.
AND, is this not the neatest bag? I tell you, just looking at it gets all my synapses firing.
*It’s only a matter of time, really. Today I wore earrings made out of fish bones.
