I am curious about this PACO RABANNE Chain Metal Shirt Style Short Dress. I am curious to know what it feels like to touch. I am curious to know what it’s like to sit in it. Is it like a regular dress? It is said to be made of 100% metal. To me that means it feels like a dress might feel that is fashioned out of something like paper clips for example. I can’t imagine a dress made out of paper clips would be very comfortable to wear.
This PACO RABANNE Chain Metal Shirt Style Short Dress is described as being “Stunningly crafted in weighty woven chain metal”. The word “weighty” makes me think the dress must be very heavy; but I guess it wouldn’t be so heavy as to be impossible to wear otherwise the designer would not have gone to the trouble.
I actually like the look of the dress. The price is another story; but maybe it’s a one of a kind and more a work or art than a dress thus justifying the price tag?

How the dress looks worn
The Laurence Dacade Suede Merli Half Boots in Anthracite shown on the model above are an interesting choice of shoes for this dress. Boots wouldn’t be the first thing that came to mind if I was trying to decide what shoes to wear with my $14″,300 PACO RABANNE Chain Metal Shirt Style Short Dress; but I guess if you were going to wear boots with this dress these are a perfectly acceptable choice.

My choice of shoes are the Charlotte Olympia Take 110 Metallic-Leather Sandals. They are silver metallic open toe sandal form Charlotte Olympia. They come with an $895 price tag.
This dress doesn’t need a necklace. A necklace would be a bit much I think. What with the all-over metal work and the collar being like an accessory itself I couldn’t imagine a necklace that would work without being obtrusively conspicuous.
Since the dress is sleeveles a simple understated silver metallic cuff bracelet could work although no bracelet is needed. The dress does all the statement making necessary by itself. But in case a bracelet was desired the Maison Martin Margiela Brass Cuff with Glass Top in Silver would be a good choice.
The bracelet comes with a $605 price tag.

The question is where do you wear a dress like this? I suspect any woman who can afford this dress doesn’t need to ask that question.
