New York Fashion Week Spring 2008, VPL: Love It or Hate It?

In honor of some of the polarizing looks showing at New York Fashion Week, I thought we would do a few fashion week editions of Love It or Hate It!

Take this Spring VPL ensemble, with its mustard, gray, and white color palette. It reminds me of an avant-garde ballet outfit, with its leotard-looking layered top and sheer lampshade-inspired skirt. So maybe it's not wearable in the real world, but even as conceptual fashion, do you dig it?

To post your selections go to the Love It or Hate It? group. And if you want to learn how to do a blog post click here.

ew. that's all i have to say.i dont like the colors at all, and i really dont like the way it looks... the top's shape is nice, but the overall effect just isnt doing anything for me.

As conceptual fashion, it is perfect! It shows the designers take on 18th century Parisian court fashion, and smashes it with our fascination with deconstructed clothing (that going along with the theory of deconstructed garments and reality TV obsession). The silhouette is womanly, and colours are post-apocalyptic. I think this a precise representation of current society.I feel that couture is not meant to be worn, but to be an extension of art. Besides when will people get out from behind their sloppy tunics and start wearing something (anything!) tailored?

even for haute couture the top looks poorly made.

I fully agree with velvetavalon. this isnt meant to be a runway to street look, but as a silhouette it just doesnt work. I'm all about the shape of the skirt and the high waist as a concept but the hemline KILLS it..this was a potentially sophisticated look sent into total cheese. I really hate it.

has anyone heard of trickle down fashion?? these runway shows aren't what everyday people wear but they are what inspires it. designers for places like target and h&m look at these take inspiration from it and move forward and make trends and market the idea of a new silhouette or a new color palette.

This is one of the many reasons why I'm not in the business anymore. Runway shows are not showcasing what normal people wear or want to wear to work or to school. Every darn show is a theatrical event for frustrated designers to show these far out designs that you would only dream about after eating some really bad cheese.

Beyond the hideous obviousness in this picture, I am really not digging the cowardly lion hair.
