Sies Marjan ... spring 2017



If this is a “brand” that took the fashion world by storm (according to B of F) , well the first question is was it a typhoon or a hurricane and if it was classified as either… well now it’s been downgraded to barely a breeze. Talk about drunk on yourself from some poorly substantiated fluff piece.

This is a collection with absolutely no substance nor any reason. This is who cares in the extreme, not to mention been there, done that,  let’s move on . Yes, nice colors but where’s the beef here? It is just another pile of clothes with another label that means nothing other than a lot of self-congratulating , chest beating and some self-fulfilling prophecy.

 Per chance this is a tsunami of design that has evaded my fashion senses. Per chance I wasn’t aware that charmeuse is the new day time fabric or that bare midriff tops are often worn by a majority of women over 35... Oh you know the ones who can afford to buy it if they so dared.  What I did find quite compelling is that much of it reminded me of strait jackets the way they wrap around and confine the body and according to Vogue.com these will be best sellers but my question is to who and where.

So, one more time the “relevance” of this collection must have escaped me! Maybe it is the 21st century version of Go Silk, or maybe Nancy Heller,  but not as good! ONE LAST THING… imagine the hanger appeal!
