Can You Stomach This?
I’m asking because I want to know if I can, too.
I know we’re supposed to help talk you through fashion decisions most days but today I need your opinion on this here Margiela belt that looks like a stack of seven but is actually one succinct waist strap.
Here are my points of difficulty:
#1. Are we really letting all-encompassing abdominal belts come back from the dead? (Well, fine, not dead, but certainly from the Alaïa archive, where they continue to quietly flourish just by virtue of existing.)
#2. Does this belt also mean we should be wearing more dresses? If the answer to this question is yes, consider me OUT.
#3. Do I like it? Am I intrigued? Are there multiple ways to wear this thick-ass strap without feeling like a parody of myself?
For arguments sake, too, here is my point of victory:
HELLO! IT’S ONE BELT THAT LOOKS LIKE SEVEN AND FEATURES MIXED METAL BUCKLES! IT MAKES ME WANT TO MOVE TO DALLAS! BUT ALSO! TO PARIS! Isn’t that something?
You tell me.
