Remember that episode of I Love Lucy in which Lucy and Ethel are desperate for dresses from a specific designer? They're heading to a horse race and insist upon these fancy dresses so Ricky and Fred cut head and arm holes in potato sacks and sew the designer label into the burlap and convince the girls the dresses came straight from his atelier. They end up at the racetrack with their heads held high, acting like snooty brats in their major outfits. They might've preferred these. We've been lamenting the loss of '08s tent dresses and welcome the sack with open arms. It does, of course, take a lot of work to make one look like Tomas Maier's at Bottega Veneta as opposed to a sheet. Laces, like at Celine, help, as does a delicate sleeve (though we'd prefer one on both arm) from Calvin Klein. As for actual burlap at Charles Anastase? At least Fred and Ricky would approve.
