Two-For-One Dresses—Gimmicky or Genius?

-------


Designers produced plenty of surreal fashion for Fall—Dolce & Gabbana’s glove hat, anyone? The most wearable take on the wackiness trend just might be the split-personality dress, seen, for starters, at Aquilano.Rimondi, Josh Goot, and Versace. Depending on your vantage point, the woman in Alexandre Herchcovitch’s little number is dolled up in sequins, or playing it simple in a silk print. And remember last season’s mullet gowns? Moschino Cheap & Chic’s Rosella Jardini has given the concept a new spin with her business-on-one-side, party-on-the-other skirt. Click here for a slideshow, and let us know what you think of the season’s off-kilter look.

    Hey,
    This “half and half” concept while being fun and quirky doesn’t merit the excitement shown by you!In fact this trend was prevalent during Spring 2009 itself, only difference being that spring’s color palatte was bold and bright while this time around the trend is played on a much paler palatte in tune with fall.The notable designs from last Spring that revolved around the same concept were Marni’s polka dotted sweater which had big violet polka dots against a grey background on one side and green dots set on a yellow background on the other side, Arband Basi One’s sweater – half see through, half grey in color, Pollini and best of all Maison Martin Margiela’s swimsuit on one side and a blazer on the other,shown here(http://fashionfifthavenue.blogspot.com/2009/02/work-or-leisure.html)!

    Anyway its cool to be a bipolar dresser at least!

    I really like the half and half look. although it’s better when its asymmetrical, much more interesting. it is very harlequin. I think that quirky connection wins me over.
