We’re pretty confident the headline you just read pretty much tells you everything you need to know about what’s to come. Just in case you’re still unclear, however, here’s a primer: Throughout New York Fashion Week, we decided to ask a real person—i.e., one that doesn’t work in or follow fashion—to share their thoughts on a particular look from any given runway show.
Next up: Professional hockey player Jake Gardiner, defenseman for the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs. Jake took time out from NHL training camp (which kicks off today) to weigh in on a look from Karen Walker Spring 2014. Here’s what he had to say.
Hey Jake! Tell us the truth: What do you think of this outfit?
It looks like a stylish grandma.
Where do you think this girl is going?
She’s going lawn bowling, or [to] bridge … whatever’s on the agenda that day.
What would you add or take away from to the outfit make it better?
I’d like to see it in a smaller size.
In what stores would you guess they sell this designer’s clothes?
Would you date a girl wearing this?
What do you like to see a woman wearing?
Jeans and a T-shirt.
Quick: What’s the first womenswear designer you can name?
Do you think this outfit would look as stylish on an average woman as it does on the model?
I think it would look better on an average women. She’d fill it out more.
