Daks SS16

I usually love when print and scale are played with…not so much here. Daks had a lot of misses and few hits for Spring/Summer 2016. The white button-up with gray peplum skirt was one of the few pieces that were wearable, normal- yet that horrid waistband makes the waist look wide. The color palette and prints made me think of everything I hated about the 70’s: piss yellows and depressing browns and greens, disgusting wallpaper and depressing furniture textiles, like nicotine-stain paisley, and everything wrong about the era. The proportion and design was also off, take the black cut-away-shoulder dress below for example.
