Actually, I just thought of one more women's piece that I think is fantastic. When I saw this I was reminded of something my partner told me. Apparently, and the dates escape me now, but I think it may have been during the Elizabethan era, it was once fashionable for men to slash their jackets, in order to show the shirts they had on underneath. This was apparently a cheap way to add interest to a piece of clothing when you couldn't afford expensive fabrics etc.
I have handled this SS12 YY Fenne slash blazer, incredible construction. Now 70% off retail in Hervia Bazaar ( £384 ), size 1, someone needs to grab.
