Sheep-Dip

Jil Sander tricolor

This ghastly tricolor ensemble by Jil Sander reminds Izzy of a classic anecdote about Groucho Marx.  Upon being informed that he would not be allowed to go in a country club’s swimming pool since it did not admit Jews, he replied, “Well, my son is half Jewish.  Can he go in up to his waist?”

    For once, the model’s pouty expression is perfectly justified.

    The color scheme is too reminiscent of American patriotism. That feels like its biggest offense.

    Since the color scheme will do as well for the flags of Great Britain, France and the Netherlands, the Annalucia does not see this as “American patriotism,” rather as an equal-opportunity offender.

    Wait… why is this ghastly? Should it be obvious?

    I like your blog better when you are less smug. It’s not big; it’s not clever.

    Why is this ghastly? The “white” part of the flag suit makes the model’s ass look huge.

    For starters.
