Is this the shape of things to come? A futuristic three dimensional structured boxy shape.
Calvin Klein spring/summer 2009

Who's it for? Not for everyone we've gathered...after excitingly purchasing a couple of cocoon shaped dresses (one shown below) last year thinking they were definite sellers, especially as one was a Oscar Da Renta dress. We were surprised they had not been snapped up.

Styling tips, dropping the price and telling people how comfortable they are to wear did not help to move these fabulous dresses.
Last resort was to chop up the sleeves, the dress now can be found in our ebay store!

These shapes are not about the female form at all, so only the super skinny, curveless, straight up and down teenager can get away with it. Any other form with lumps and bumps and hips is not going to cut it, you'll end up looking larger than you are.

The Calvin Klein pieces I love to death, but are they functional? NO. Are they sexy? NO, so its going to be interesting to see if ladies will rock them. But there is always the more tamer version...the tulip or cocoon style which will be seen every shop this summer, so lets see if its going to take off or is it just for the shapeless few. LOL!

What do we think of Estelle's dress, she received alot of criticisms...I love it, what do you guys think?
