Sies Marjan NYFW fall 2017



Now that any pretense of offering pretty clothes with hanger appeal has literally crashed and burned, we can look to this brand for some of the most unappealingly oddly assembled clothes that these eyes have recently seen other than as some school project …. Which in most cases would certainly have been better.

Okay, so the color palette looked like rainbow sherbet that you buy in a tub at the supermarket which can be appealing … for SPRING! Then there is this designer’s odd predilection for fabrics that have a luster and sheen to them... Think dollar a mile Halloween acetate satin and cheap crushed velvet. Apparently there is some sort of hallucinatory fantasy that these clothes are pretty and wearable which begs these questions… where exactly are you wearing any of this except for a coat or 2 and why do you choose to look as if you tore cheap sleazy satin sheets off the bed and draped them on you in a sort of sci-fi 21st century take of the drape scene in GWTW?

All of this actually doesn’t matter since the bottom line is that clothes have to sell. You can buy your hype, you can “buy” your way into a store and you can buy editors but what you can’t buy is sales… you need a woman or person who will actually lust and covet clothes….  I ask you. .. What do you suppose these limp rags will look like on a rail in any store and with that I rest my case.

One last thing pops to mind…. “What’s new pussycat” … NOTHING!
