    Old-School Knickers Get a New Identity

    May 13, 2004 – Zac Posen used his metallic-leather pair to "make the suit modern." The Proenza Schouler team were inspired by matadors. Emanuel Ungaro showed a racy version augmented with zippers, while Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton chose Little Lord Fauntleroy-approved velvet. Who knew the simple knicker—a trim, knee-length trouser that once conjured images of country squires—could take on multiple personalities? Even Roberto Cavalli turned out a version (in leather, of course) that was more spicy than sporty, while Balenciaga and Emilio Pucci steered in the other direction with more gently cut, cropped trousers.

    duh...forgot to attach the image... :innocent:

    i guess that's why i like them...they are not just a literal version...they still gather below the knee like a traditional knicker...but the extended bit makes them look more modern and less costumey...i think they're sooo cool... :p

    I'm with softie. I think they can be very cute. Love the lacroix ones. If I had them I think I would definately wear them with tights and heels and something modern on top so I don't look like I came from play rehearsal.
