Thoughts on pants.

So, although I expressed my concerns before about the announced Capri pants comeback, and although we all can already see in these streets of June the dawning of the gloomy slaughter that is about to happen; still knowing that it's going to be a failure won't stop what has already started and isn't really in our power to avoid. Acceptance that you're going to wear them will make it easier. I spent some time thinking about a way of escape, in order to keep some dignity through the summer (just to give it away in September, I guess you know by now there is really few to be remembered from fall runaways.); and came out with the following results. Still don't let these fool you, and don't get excited, Capri pants remain a very bad idea. but we've got to do what we've got to do.

So maybe I was being blinded by all this unexpected white, but I actually thought these pants looked fresh and bright, and I found the doodle print idea very sweet, nothing new maybe but never so polished before.

But if you're not ready yet for the all white,

obviously with these shoes you could wear whatever you want and still look gorgeous, even if you're not Carolyn maybe

Then if you agree just for a moment to forget about this dangerous Spring 2011, I'm going to show you probably the best Capri ever made.

That collection was just stunning. This last look on Tao is still one of my favourites.

Oh, look at me, we've seen a lot of colour all over the place and I'm still suggesting black and white stuff getting all excited when a bit of gray comes out for a change. If you fell braver than me, and you better do, then you could also cut the Capri shorter and welcome whatever comes next.

And just because we're talking pants, the only brand I'd wear if I was a boy (and when I see these believe me, I wish I was)
