V Man: Jil Sander is California Dreamin’

Just a handful of skirts on guys - but also some of the women were a bit androgynous (as were the guys) so it's a bit hard to tell. It's intended to shock - not the most wearable stuff.

I would wear 23 and the look would be as far from androgynous as one could imagine.
As for wearability, all this stuff is about form, not function, but we know that already, don't we?

LOL - I was wondering that. The cynical part of me thought they rigged a water sprayer so they could carry umbrellas in the "rain".

We do - but I like to post a comment like I did on these articles so people don't think I'm advocating for outlandish designer form over function styles intended to shock... even if a part of me is like, "hrmmm, if only I could wear that crazy thing". And frankly, these designs were pretty tame compared to other stuff designers have put out.

If you want to splash the cash on trivia, why not?
Function needn't always be our prime concern; whimsy is good for the soul.

From someone I know who lives everything fashion and runway almost as a problem, she says designer always design more outlandish things for the runways to gain hype. Then time down the garment for real people to wear. Gives the wearer the mystique of wearing something from the runway that is also wearable in daily life.

That said, the men in skirts parts seem way more palatable than usual pictures we see. That’s encouraging

Wow! There’sa high proportion of those I’d like to try. Some could even be adapted for everyday wear. And the fluffy stuff would be good for a bit of a do.
