This all feels very "summer", crisp lightweight fabrics that wind up creased at some point. Very relaxed and unfussy.

I actually do think this can work very well, as long as the piece itself is quite tailored and clean, like the metallic Burberry dress or the parchment colored Prada halter. The key to making this work is that it looks intentional, and I think that the more crumpled the fabric is the better. If it's just a little bit, like on that blue Burberry coat, then it winds up just looking like awrinkled garment.

I enjoy it on the catwalk, and I agree that it should look intentional--which might still be very difficult to pull off in real life. I don't believe I can pull it off. lol. Free People sent me a twisted dress, and came up very wrinkled. I don't think I was allowed to iron it. I think the crumpled look was suggested, but it wasn't going to work. No one where I live would ever get it.

Guys this is actually already out in the stores
I saw this last summer/spring
At Reitman's, of all places --and other shops
They were not all terrible actually..

Must agree with Spike
A lot of the garments I saw were like blazers with skirts or other formal looking clothes, The creases definitely look intentional. In fact there was a really nice sort of riding jacket in a deep military green, and the creases were more like heavy uneven pleats, so many of them.. Very very nice

i like this look when done right, but it's easy for it to look messy...
