Trend Alert: Throw Your Hands Up

Jeepers creepers! Where’d you… Oh, don’t worry, I won’t use “peepers” to avoid repping the word eye a million times. That’s just weird. Besides, I’m not talking about that evil eye motif that started in jewelry (Delfina Delettrez) and has been upgraded to a full-blown trend this season (KenzoMara Hoffman). Much as I love my Rachel Comey eyelash blouse, this post is about the next body part to be fetishized in fashion: hands.

As with all disembodied parts trends (Google that!), there’s an element of surrealism in these designs. Inspiration ranges from my man M.C. Escher to Miley’s foam finger to a little lady named Dooneese.
