Nu ved du: Dickies er tilbage i mode (ja, virkelig)

“I bet you’re wondering what a dickey is,” said Michael Kors at his resort presentation Tuesday afternoon.

Well, most of us have heard before dickeys, the fake shirt collars or faux turtlenecks that happen to have a leading role in the designer’s latest collection (afbildet ovenfor). “Layering uden bulk”, sagde Kors og pegede på de lyse hvide kraver, der fint klæte sine deco strikker og udskrifter – nogle så form passende til en fuld skjorte ville have ødelagt udseende.

And it made me believe that dickeys despite their long tradition as a fashion punch line, continues to serve a practical purpose, only different from what they were originally designed for. Den dickey, en opfindelse fra det 19. århundrede, stod undertiden dickie eller dicky, blev så kald fra Cockney slang til en skjorte, som ville være en “dicky dirty.” Lad mig ikke forklare begrundelsen for Cockney, eller for den sags skyld, nævne den uheldige periode i min 70’ers barndom, der involverede en turtleneck dickey sweater.

Its original purpose was to make laundering of men’s clothes for clothes more manageable, back the day before mass production and fast mode, most of us got to buy new shirts every time the old shirts grew a little dingy. Men aftagelige kraver og dickeys kan rengøres og Stryges separat, vende inde i et andet liv, eller udskiftes uden at smide resten af ​​skjorte væk.

I dagens verden er deres formål, which Kors noticed, adding a little versatility to a particular appearance. This is something that designers think about during the resort presentations, and Kors also noted his focus this season on clothes that looked like dresses, but were actually a combination of skirts and top so they could be broken apart to create more clothes.

Practical solutions, shown, were on the minds of many other designers who showed their way this week. “Lag af sportstøj i en meget elegant form”, sagde Donna Karan, introducerede hendes fremragende udvalg af sofistikerede elfenbenskilt, efterfulgt af sort kufferter og et par skud af lyserøde silke kjoleer, samme farve som de cherry blomstrene, der gjorde sin baneafbildet nedenfor, fra L-R). Casual patchworks fremhævede fremtrædende jeg Joseph Altuzarras sommerlige halter kjoler, der præsenterede ikatbilleder, og Diane von Furstenberg, hvis blues kiggede lysere end chambray.
