The Crumpled Zone S/S 09
A potentially difficult summer on the way seem to have brought a few DIY ideas to designers and one of the best for me was the amount of wrinkled pieces showing up abundantly in catwalks, especially in Milan, where Miuccia insisted on crumpled everything from start to finish for her Prada collection. But, don't let such an accessible technique fool you, these are not accidental wrinkles in your typical rockstar/dirty ways, the way Costa worked them at Calvin Klein set the standard of what we'd be seeing later in Paris and Milan, as he seemed to have carefully folded every garment in precise, geometrical pieces, giving them a rather artisanal touch that make the task a little harder than just having to lay on the couch the entire afternoon. :p

Vivienne Westwood S/S 09

Not liking the trend. Calvin Klein falls more into an origami/folded details trend.

On another one I had jeans that had the crumpled look, mummy ironed it to perfection and it took her sometime to get the crumple out.

YES, def. hard to pull off, you can come across looking like a slob without an iron with 1 wrong styling move

It has the potential to look really romantic though

These examples are very beautiful, especially the Prada, but I hate to think of how such a trend would translate into a mass produced item of clothing.

Great thread Mullet..
I don't think this is a bad trend, it's just a trend that's easy to do wrong

I really like it when the pieces are still somewhat tailored and hade a definite shape, like at Burberry and marc by Marc Jacobs

not a big fan of the westwood or prada

It will not work on real life it does not even work in the catwalk. It's kind of stupid really.
