Receptacles were huge on the catwalks this season, and served with a dose of irony. At Balenciaga, the new It bag is a £230 version of the sort of square-edged plastic cover that comes with a new cheap louis vuitton duvet or electric blanket. If you are committed to getting the look for less, buy some bedding and reuse the case. Or just enjoy the knowledge that your look is on point even when you're weighed down with children's PE kits or an Ikea flatpack. Your work shirt appears to ray ban outlet have been caught in the shredder. Disaster, right? Wrong. This season, that's a look. It's called deconstructed shirting and it's part of a wider preoccupation with rejigged workwear. On the christian louboutin outlet catwalk, this means a pinstriped blazer worn backwards and refashioned into a dress. In real life, it's a shirt with a peephole at the shoulder, or a cheap oakley sunglasses trench with an extra-thick, flattering belt. Basically, these are office clothes, but not the way that Steve in facilities management wears them.
