Malandrino: Pleats Aplenty

The intricate origami pleating on this navy skirt by Catherine Malandrino resembles zipper-like triangles that point downwards, emphasizing the length and height of its wearer; the bunched-up bottom and organza fabric create a sensual fullness, emphasizing the femininity of its wearer. While the billowy top adds too much fullness (a plain but professional crisp white blouse would provide a stronger contrast), this skirt is a prized item that you will turn to again and again.
