Getting All Wrapped-up


Interesting trend spotted at the current fashion week: the arm binding band that wraps around the upper body, as seen on the runways at JW Anderson and most recently, Celine. First question is of course, how inconvenient, although the binding actually gives off an oddly elegant vibe. Maybe it’s because you can’t make huge movements wearing it and you need to become extremely gentle or that it’s so unconventional that you must be so sort of inhuman to pull that off (like you can actually have coffee and comb your hair and flag a taxi etc). Either that or you are very close to making a joke about onigiri.
