the origami skirt


I've been intrigued by these origami-like skirts ever since Proenza Schouler trotted out its Asian-spirited asymmetrical-hemmed minis last fall. My obsession deepened during Netaporter's end of season sale, when one of  Proenza's beauties slipped through my fingers, because I neglected to put it in my shopping cart as I browsed other options. By the time I got back to the on-sale skirt, poof, it was gone. So, I've been on the hunt. Here's what I've turned up: a silk wrap skirt from Topshop; a more minimalist, less layered Asos; a sleek color-blocked Nicholas; and Zara's white skirt-shorts hybrid that's a close kissing cousin to the one above (happily, it's already en route!).

Love the zara ones! There's also this DIY I came across that was inspired by the Proenza skirt. http://apairandasparediy.com/2012/09/diy-proenza-schouler-inspired-wrap-skirt.html

Hi! The grey and white skirt is by Dion Lee, from a few seasons ago and sadly sold out. I do believe Zara will re-stock.
