    Fall 2010 fashion: kilt-leg trousers

    I know I'm going to get lynched for this, but I really enjoy seeing avant-garde and non sequitur forays into fashion.... And I love this look by my favorite designer Jean Paul Gaultier. He is already known for liking the kilt and kilt-like garments, and one of his most recent creations (in my personal opinion) is really, really hot.

    For the lasses, kilt-legged trousers:



    And for the lads, this appeared on the Fall catwalk courtesy of Marc Jacobs, also a known kilt proponent.



    Although I must say, I'm really not nearly as keen on Jacobs's interpretation of the idea. Would I wear it though? Probably. I like wearing unusual things to work. Keeps my students entertained.

    To my eye, the peacock -- the male peacock, has escaped his cage, and I don't think anyone's going to be able to corral him or get him back into the cage of conformity. He's on his own now, and he's flying high!

    Likewise not so hot on the Jacobs, but the Gaultier is ... yes.

    Was wondering this weekend about a kilt for "fat" guys that had a bib, like bib overalls attached to it. No need for a sporran with the pockets in the bib, suspenders built in so no worries about the kilt staying up.

    No pics, but guess it would look a bit too much like a dress - or lederhosen.

    It is all too easy to slip over into oblivion when out on the cutting edge of kilt fashion...

    I kinda like Jacob's. Not sure I'd wear it, but I'd definitely thumbs up a bloke I saw wearing it. Maybe I'd wear it, if not for the price tag sure to be attached ;)

    Ron, I often wear a full-front apron over my kilt when I'm in the kitchen, so I can imagine what the "overalls" kilt would look like. I do think that it would look too much like a dress to really be worn in public... thinking June MacCleaver

    Ron, you seem to generate a couple of interesting ideas a week on the forum.

    As far as the OP, it's interesting...kinda looks like something I saw in a sci-fi movie years ago. I'd never wear it, but I could see elements of it showing up in contemporary fashion down the road.

    I guess that Barenaked Ladies song was right...it's all been done before.

    Well, there you go....I see bib overalls and get a crazy idea - someone else takes it all the way and creates the garment and markets it. Nice to see it for real instead of in my fuzzy imagination. Is this a great board or what!!??

    To the original post - imagine the pressure on fashion designers to come up with something "new" after a hundred years of fashion....Gotta be a difficult line of work.
