Aprons are apparently not just for Nanny and other kitchen staff. Last year we saw Miu Miu making a statement with pleated perfect aprons and this summer Paul Smith is creating full bodied skirts, in slightly more gypsy style with layers over petticoats, to craet a apron effect. A cunning take on the 50’s housewife half a century later when woman have it all and the bank balance. Personally I love a bit of an ironic statement, showing that all practical things, when thought through and executed stylishly can make you look adventurous and humorous. Its a far cry from the Good Housewife Guide.
