Evan Biddell put on a great show at LFW. I definitely enjoyed it and saw some really cute pieces. The dhoti style pants are gorgeous. He’s taken a lesson from the Japanese masters and my favourite drop-crotch makers Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto.
I didn’t like the gingham pieces. The skirt volume was clunky and didn’t fall in line with the rest of the collection. The short shorts were a little too American Apparel for me, especially after all the amazing pants.
Overall great little streetwear collection; polished. Models were a lot of fun and it was an entertaining show.
On a side note, I’ve had discussions with some people about Biddell’s dhoti pant. While I think he’s done a great job producing them and he’s even got me eyeing a pair, the average woman is going to stay away from this trend. Most of the people who disagree with me on this point are men usually. It’s not like I don’t have facts to back me up.
The one trend most retailers agreed could go away: Harem pants. (WWD SS09 NYC Buyers Report via The Fashion Spot)
It’s an unforgiving pant that doesn’t wear easily.
