For next season, Dries van Noten introduced potato sack frocks, which could, perhaps, be a nod to the economy. The designer, who is well known for his loose-flowing clothing, sent several models down his Fall 2009 runway wearing oversize beige pieces.
As usual, the fashion crowd loved his easily wearable suggestions for the season that underscored the understated fashions of America and Europe. Who knew potato sack frocks could be so lovely.
Implications - Could these unusual frocks be the next must-have-dress for young girls at their high school proms or graduations? No matter how comfortable they may be, I definitely do not want to be remembered as the girl wearing a potato sack at her prom!
