Draped in Marble



Helmut Lang dress (here), Roger Vivier bag, Yves Saint Laurent shoes

The pared down drape effect is the best part of this perfectly cloudy grey dress. I like the soft, wispy feeling of it against the skin and how it clings on like a cocoon. Even the length of it and the apportioning of ruche texture between the upper and nether halves is changeable. The way the fabric falls almost reminds me of those marble-draped statues so ridiculously perfect that it makes me think they must be crafted by nonhuman hands from a different part of the universe.
