farmers and overalls
and overalls just overalls
and some other bloggers who made tributes to the garment that has always had a place in its utilitarian role and occasionally, for better or for worse, makes an appearance as a trend
there are more and more, but the real question I was asking myself that launched the overall search was how does one take all that is function, as in an overall, and make it make sense for anyone not walking towards the tractor or the assembly line.
Function and Fashion are two things that are so often linked, but so rarely balanced. You are inevitably sacrificing one or the other. So that is the question- what is the base line that needs to be set in between the two so that the designs can be built up from there without skewing to one side or the other?
