sort of a follow on to my entry about heel-less shoes, is about this lovely image sent in by Xu Xu from NYT Style Magazine of designer Marni's latex top with fur edges.
ok, i think the shot is really good and moody - but the top is hideous!
apparently the designer is experimenting with latex and has done a few things but from the googling i've done they're only marginally better than molded latex which is pretty bad. guess all you need is a full page, makeup, model with a head shaped like an egg and a quizical look and good photography to sell something.
god knows what the dry cleaner would do too it if you brought it in for cleaning. doesn't even looked lined in any way so it will be very cold unless your layering it.
in a way it has sort of inspired me, my plan to get a short rain jacket made from latex based on the black shiny PVC ones that are big this fall is still on the cards and all i have to do now is make up some sort of exotic sounding brand name and i'm a designer.
