Jan Taminiau is so deliciously over-the-top and I love it! It’s beautiful, conceptual, multi-layered and interactive. On the website, watch the model walk in with the design one way and over time it becomes this poof of a dress. It’s frothy and fantasy all wrapped in one. Where would one wear something like this? Not sure, but it is definitely lovely to look at.

      THE COVETED | Gradient tights I done myself… Jan 30, 2008

      […] Prada brought them into the forefront AW07, gradients have been peeking into fashion conversations. Style Alchemy posted this lovely pic that’s been haunting me for ages. H&M even did a gradient sweater. […]

      Ok. I kind of like the concept of these dresses, but not the dresses themselves. They make the poor girl look thick waisted, or that she has been freshly attacked by a pair of scissors! The first dress is definitely meringue-ish, The second and third like trial and errors, and the fourth a bizarre lingerie item. I do not understand the present fashion that cuts the waist out entirely, and leaves girls looking like they are trying to hide a pregnancy, and makes an otherwise Gorgeous body looking just wrong! Honestly people, what are we thinking? I do love the idea of the colourful dress, but give it a waist, and you would have something really perfect! Am I the only one who sees this?

      She looks like she wrapped herself in thick blankets in some of these. Hate it.

      I am absolutely in love with the colored dress. While not practical, it is inspiration at its finest.

      I think the shoes ruin it, they are very distracting

      Where would you wear these dresses? To your personal box at the ballet of course! Champagne and caviar first, then a carriage ride through central park (in Spring of course) and a stunning rendition of some lovely ballet for the highlight of the evening. Afterward a long stroll along the streets of upper-west manhattan with your dashing top-hat wearing gent on your side.
