So, how did the clothes turn out? There were linen trenches, neat Prince of Wales pencil skirts, shorts, and miniskirts in seersucker; a red-and-white striped skirt was lifted straight from a photo of Barney's daughter in a beach towel. From there in, Jensen's transpositions were just a little weirdershirtdresses acquired an eighties cocktail dress side-ruche, knotted cardigan sleeves were fused into shoulders and around hips. Any preppy American would identify this as not quite the real thing straight off, but that's the point about Jensen. For him, it was just another path into doing a quietly ironic take on "normal" clothes, which is exactly what his followers appreciate.
