Perplexed: The Post-It Problem

Akris, Spring 2008

3.1 Philip Lim, Spring 2008

Carrie Bradshaw had a thing against post-its, but I have a thing against post-its on dresses. Sad to say, two of my favorite designers, Akris and Philip Lim, have decided to experiment with this workplace essential. While I understand the textural appeal from an avant-garde standpoint, I cannot comprehend any modern woman wanting to wear a dress that looks like a maniacal stack of office supplies liable to blow away at the slightest sigh. The appearance of this look in moderation could appease me, but I predict that this brief experiment will tumble like a house of cards.
