On the dot.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 11:49 am

Polka dots seem to appear in every fashion season, again and again. I have my difficulties with those dots since the pattern is often associated with the 1950s. Not that I don’t like that decade but dots on dresses… too innocent and happy for my taste. Apart from that, a dotted piece of clothing is a clearly visible statement and there’s always a lot going on when polka dots are involved. I just can’t do it. Thus only a very few dots have made it to my closet: A very boyish black shirt with white dots by Paul Smith I bought ages ago for an interview and that little Philipp Lim jacket which looks like a “dot persiflage” to me ‘cause only one dot pattern hasn’t been enough here – it’s made of three different polka dot patterns. Enough dots for me, but there’s still plenty in store if you check the S/S 2010 collections for example.
