In general, I very much appreciate any designer who is willing to rethink, to conceptualize, to revolutionize and not let convention hold back their creativity. However, quality is quality, and one cannot throw good taste into the waste bin and work by only the principle that it has to be new and unusual. With that in mind, I regard these unfortunate trousers a failure. Having the top half in crushed velvet is bad enough, but the "tutu" part of this garment definitely adds the finishing touch to the catastrophe. Were the pattern, the tailoring and the materials reconsidered, then possibly, possibly, this... thing might actually be on to something.
