Kneepads? Kneepads are Haute Couture now. And trainers! Karl sent very few heels down the runway. This makes me happy even though, obviously, by the time it gets on to the street, the buyers would never wear the dresses with flats.
There’s some marvelous construction happening here. Like the suctioned waists with the box cuts above and below? I’m into this. It’s actually a beautiful, wearable collection when you remove the catwalk extras that are there more for presentation than for practicality.
