More granny square madness
You’ve probably already seen the hideousness that was Cate Blanchett’s granny square dress on the red carpet:
Yeah yeah, it was supposed to be humorous or something. Personally I think it’s only entertaining in a mean holy-shit-that’s-so-awful kind of way. And generally this is what happens when someone tries to turn granny squares into clothing.
Now check this out, from Christopher Kane’s at London Fashion Week:
This just proves a friend of mine’s point that color makes the difference in how good granny squares look. I still don’t love in a I-must-make-this way, but I can appreciate the geometrics and color here.
Of course, the biggest problem with granny squares as clothing is the complete lack of drape that they’re going to have. These dresses are only going to look good on a runway, or on someone who’s so damn hot they could grab a blanket off the couch and wear that. Which is kind of what they did there.
