Here I was, thinking that Burda was on a really beautiful roll, with their lace tea dresses, military jackets and the Travel Cape for the Terrorized by Security at Airport, when they give us these flounced skinnies in the full preview of their August edition. I wouldn't leave the house in these, but maybe I'm missing something here? Are they all the rage in Polish clubs? German Soccer Mom gabfests? English Yummy Mummy school runs?
The velvet kimono is cut out and interfaced...
Hilarious. The funniest thing is it's a rip-off from Prada (or was it Miu-Miu? Miuccia Prada anyway) from a few seasons ago. I wonder if they actually sold some of these tulip pants...ReplyDelete
Carlotta, can you please link us to the originals? I knew there must be an explanation. Reveal all, piacere, cara!ReplyDelete
Boggle! But then it wouldn't be Burda without a bit of glorious weirdness. I already have A Visit From Voltaire so there's no temptation to make these! Didn't Nigella Lawson wear something similar a few years ago in tight black satin, to great delight of the tabloids? Can't remember the designer's name though.ReplyDelete
You have a copy? Then I should be sewing you a pair!
Yes, Yes! Poodle Pants! I've re-titled the blog in your honour, Val, and for a photo of poodle pants worn in the company of sailors, I'll donate enough copies for an entire book club!ReplyDelete
Somehow I think this is one giveaway that isn't going too see the light of sewing machine...as you say, oh, dear.
Wait -- those poodle pants have possibilities -- and they hide ugly toes.ReplyDelete
His Boldness: Go for it.ReplyDelete
Oh, I think His Boldness' cousin Cathy could rock the poodle pants.ReplyDelete
HA! here they are, made in a sort of neoprene : http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2010RTW-MIUMIU?event=show2062&designer=design_house64&trend=&iphoto=32#slide=32ReplyDelete
Awww, I love these pants and intend to make them - they are on my to sew list. I first saw The Glamourai wear them, and she always looks fab.ReplyDelete
