A big thank you to everyone who entered this challenge. I know it was a tough one, but I was really impressed with the entries.

A four-armed, cotton/metal/silk(?)/linen(?) women's dress. I was...disappointed? I didn't understand it. And so it sat in the back of my closet. Until today.







Oliver Peoples sunglasses
Isabel Benenato hat, knit
KKA pants
Silent scarf, bag
Carpe Diem dress, boots

Long story short this shit is crazy. With some pins you can create some seriously beautiful geometric draping, and the top set of arms can be folded down your back to create this weird cowl collar. I spent at least fifteen minutes in front of the mirror just playing with the thing. Starting to believe some of the SZ hype about Altieri. I could go on and on––it was a very strange and interesting and fun experience––but I won't. I will say that this was a trip faaaaaar outside my comfort zone, and that I think I'm better for it. Now to scrounge the internet for wrap skirts...

I also realized that I can turn my insane Julius vest into a skirt, but it was way too hot to wear it out.

I do quite like the look though, and I can't imagine commisioning a simple cotton-skirt that looks like this would be very expensive...

this is perhaps one of the most interesting challenges i have seen here, and with some great results.

on the one hand i am bummed out that i just found this and was unable to post an entry, on the other hand, i may have spared myself some grave embarrassment.

How I think CM will feel about some of the the entries:
 

Lorcan7 - The cut on that sweater is ridiculous/awful

Canstyleace - he looks like he's going to search for shangri-la riding a yeti

spacepope - he looks homeless hehehehehehehehehehe I'm so clever

RegisDB9 - finally a MAN!

3 Prague Winters - nice armchair

Neofinita - guys look he's wearing a dress LOL

kindofyoung - are those aldens? 

BreezyBirch - what...the...fuck

turns out I was completely wrong, cool

 

oh and thanks for the votes guys, much appreciated :)

post #11 of 67

I love Pope's fit the most. Man alive is that beautiful . Had to vote for that, though it doesn't come across as androgynous. Leftofdial for a nice fit, nice use of color, nice use of whatever that floral thing is, and going the whole nine yards with the painted fingernails. But I think Lorcan deserves the win here. A lot of gothninja (sorry if I'm misclassifying that) is already pretty androgynous to my untrained eye, but Lorcan genderbent his outfit more than anyone else.

 

Edit: I regret voting for Pope given his commanding lead. It's an amazing fit. Squirreled away in my compendium of SW&D fits that I like (not used for inspiration, just admiration). But I don't see what is so androgynous about his fit.

post #12 of 67
um, he is wearing a dress. how is that not androgynous?
post #13 of 67
Sweet! Too bad I don't check in on this side of the forum more often, I might have some stuff that would have worked in this challenge.

It didn't appear he was wearing it as a dress. It wasn't recognizable as such, at least not from a lot of wraps that I see. Again, untrained eye.
