This week, everyone in the studio was abuzz about three armhole wrap dresses. Taylor was reminiscing this 1960’s trend on Pinterest, and someone on Twitter (thanks, @CarmencitaB!) linked to a video of a fashion show featuring Adeline André, a designer who pushed armholes to the limits. The video shows a model patiently threading her arms through armhole after armhole, wrapping herself in billowy layers 21 times before heading to the runway. It’s hypnotizing.
