DoP Winter 2018

 
They say, Begin as you intend to go on.

 
 
How did we begin the year at Directrice Global Industries Ltd.?
 
White blouse, Glen plaid, DoP-stripe pants, yellow bag!

Best foot forward in 2018


 
This dress has a slightly fuller silhouette than my typical DoP selection, but it works because the material is very fluid — a lovely, fine wool draped in an asymmetrical, faux wrap skirt.

Fatima had to shorten this at the shoulders to tighten the armscyes; we forgot to check the neck opening

It’s a tight squeeze for my giant head; oops!

 
 
A yellow bag adds a little whimsy to these traditional menswear fabrics.

Some may think that appropriating the menswear fabrics for women’s clothes and then layering a dress over pants is plenty whimsy, but I say there’s room for more

 
 
This Glen plaid is predominantly white and black — which reads grey, but there are lines of bright blue and sky blue woven in. Can you see them?

I think you are going to have to come closer to see the blues; this is not a ruse to pick your pocket

 
 
 
Come closer and see the blues.

 
 
Do you see now?
 
Also note frayed armscyes.

  1. Absolutely a hit out of the park including the touch of whimsy yellow bag. It just WORKS. And it really fits within your style history. Keep on truckin’.

  2. I’ve been waiting for a DoP! Whenever you post one, I get the nerve to replicate!
    Lovely dress – the frayed armholes have enough cheek to make it fun. It’s a great outfit!

But what do you think?
