Every fashion week, we look for new and exciting trends from the runways to guide us into the next season. This year is no different: We’ve seen monochrome prints, crazy (like really crazy) hats, several Jenna Lyons dopps, and now…hands?
As The Cut pointed out, both Diane von Furstenberg and Rodarte bizarrely featured hand printed dresses in their F/W 2012 runway collections. The designers couldn’t be more different than, say, your right and left hands, so it makes sense that the effects of their similar prints are vastly different: Rodarte‘s flowy chiffon frock has a dramatic Jack-and-Rose-Going-At-It-In-That-Steamy-Car in Titanic sort of feel, while DVF’s streamline midi is a bit more Hitchcockian Thriller meets Judy Funnie’s beatnik performance art. While we’re fairly certain this print repetition is purely coincidental (everyone knows that no two finger prints are the same), we have to hand it to both designers for their handy work in making these hand print prints their very own.
So which designer’s hands would you rather have feeling you up (and all over): Diane von Furstenburg’s or Rodarte’s?
