The Emperor’s New Vein Embroidered Tube Top, by Dsquared

Just in case you’re offended by the sight of naked breasts (or are at work) we’ve covered up this model’s nipples for you, and if you particularly want to stare at her breasts, you’ll have to do it over at Luisa Via Roma.

If, on the other hand, you’re offended by $320 tops that are completely transparent, save for a “look, here are my veins” design, well, there’s not a whole lot we can about that, other than to reassure you that this top, by Dsquared, is at least not supposed to be worn without anything over the top of it, but more like this:

So, what do you think? We’re happy to know we won’t have to arrest it on grounds of sheer (geddit?) indecency, but do we still have to arrest it on the grounds of being an item which contrives to make you look like you have freakishly veiny arms? Or does that just make it totally awesome and unique?

You decide.

    I would have loved it at 12, but now it just screams “trying to hard”.

    Pretty cool idea, but if it falls in the hands of people like TheGaGa, then you’d need to get the cuffs out.

    I like it but I like the leggings version better.

    If you only saw the picture of the catwalk model, you’d think it was the work of some crazy make-up lady who doesn’t understand the concept of “less is more”

    Actually, I quite like it BUT only on the catwalk/some couture photo shoot… Otherwise – ick.

    This reminds me of the band Tool… Also, I second Minka’s comment.

    This looks less like clothing and more like a piece of a Hallowe’en costume. You could probably put together an awesome zombie with this.

    Yesterday I was just freakishly veiny, today I’m $320 better off. Thank you Dsquared!

    hmmm will try n wear wd a beige or black or pink tank beneath it.. maybe the designer forgot tht…. but perhaps i will reject if after trying it on most likely..
    veins are beneath the skin for the best purpose of nature.
