A slightly surreal issue of Ottobre this quarter. Things are different across the channel, I'm sure of it. Some of the differences are very good:
Less gendered designs and colour palette, hooray!
Unusual detailing, hooray!
Things I would wear myself, hooray! No, truly, this is almost the same as the woman's one I still haven't made. And yet...
By virtue of being Continental, I am inclined to allow them a handful of WTF outfits per magazine. Harem trousers would probably be cute on a baby. And practical.
But I cannot get behind them on people who are bi-ped.
Ruffles: in and of themselves not alarming, but I find the fervor with with they are embraced in 'Euro-fashion' alarming. Especially 'Euro-fashion' as interpreted by Americans. Ruffles only to the back of a shirt? A stepping stone towards hard-core weirdness.
Yes, that cardigan is on backwards; it can be worn either way. Anything can be worn either way. But people will think you're mental. Probably even in Europe.
Any dissenters in the ranks? Do you rock your cardigans backwards?
