WORLD 4034 23 Skidoo Dress Print
This collection was created with 23 Skidoo, the 1960 American tall tale, in mind with inspiration from the era’s colloquial slang and iconic mementos.
Ever hear the old expression “23 Skidoo?” It means "get lost," and it came from the NYPD Officers who regularly patrolled in front of the Flatiron, chasing away the hopeful men who would watch for women’s skirts fly up in the wind. “Scram,” “Skedaddle,” and “Skedat,” are all modern expressions thought to have originated from these incidents.
The WORLD 23 Skidoo Dress is a shaped knit body dress with short sleeves and dove-tail neckline at front and back with contrast piping.
