My gorgeous friend Debra and I visited Bergdorf Goodman to do some research for our respective jobs. (Really!) While we were there, I spotted a wild and crazy “motorcycle” jacket by Junya Watanabe: bright blue, ultra-cropped, belted under the bosom, with an explosion of ruffles on the shoulders. We spent a few minutes saying, “What IS this?” because we thought it was part of a dress. Once we figured out the jacket was a separate piece, we had a sales associate take it off a mannequin so we could try it on.
Who would buy such a crazy jacket? Hmmmm …. I wonder.
