Dona Karan’s pink ostrich feather coat: we’re not lovin’ it


Oh God, it's way too early in the morning for this kind of thing, seriously. We haven't even had our coffee and doughnuts yet, and here we are with a suspected fashion criminal to process.

The problem is, we don't even know where to file this one. Is it a straightforward case of Daylight Robbery (well, it is £3,607. What recession?)  or is it a more complex Crime of Fashion? What did the ostrich DO to deserve this? And where's Mousy when you need her, anyway?

We're just going to play it safe here and assume that this both daylight robbery AND a crime of fashion, but if you disagree, you can get your own ostrich at NET-A-PORTER .

    “Oh God, it’s way too early in the morning for this kind of thing, seriously.”
    I looked at this, and having just crawled out of bed… is my sentiments exactly.

    I kind of love it. Not for wearing in PUBLIC, but it might be fund for swanning about the house while wearing absurdly high pink heels.

    it’s like something from Sesame Street :(

    I kind of love it, too. I could dig it better in a different color, though. Maybe red or black?

  • January 28, 2009


    It’s both.

    It’s rather fabulous, to a ridiculous extent. Very Liza Minelli. I’d wear it with a kicky red hat, turqouise necklace and black stiletto boots…and strike a pose, dahling!

    It wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t pink…
    maybe a lovely cream or *gasp!* the natural colors of the feathers?!

    I agree with a lot of the comments, it wouldn’t be quiiiiite as atrocious if it weren’t puke-pink.

    It’s sold out. Clearly someone really likes it
