The Dressed Undressed SS17 collection, designed by Takeshi Kitazawa/Emiko Sato was all about layers and hovered between sleek looks and extensive volume. Skinny suits covered with voluminous trenches and raincoats formed an integral part of the collection — BDMOTP especially adored the long, khaki colored coat/cape lined with sheepskin. An interesting take on the poncho, this coat has “loose” arms giving it a cape-esque appeal. However, the long length stays within the Aw16/17 trend of long coats, we which love and are thrilled to see are still waking the runways for spring. The collection also featured a very unique style of layering: double button-ups. Literally one button-up dress shirt was placed over another, perhaps a way to stay warm on a cool spring day.
Another interesting trend walking this catwalk was the one-sleeve look: a plaid button-up or long trench with just one sleeve. A promising solution to that funky spring weather when you just aren’t sure to select long sleeves or no sleeves! Probably not one BDMOTP will venture into trying anytime soon, but Dressed Undressed does get an A for effort and creativity.
