Crimes of Fashion, Dresses

Cynthia Rowley and Olaf Breuning let you look naked while being fully clothed

polka dot dress

This dress reminds us of a Magic Eye drawing (remember those?). Not because of all the dots, but because if you look closely enough, and give it a few seconds, you’ll notice a naked female form hidden behind the pattern. Or, at least, we HOPE you will, because if you don’t, then it must just be us, seeing naked bodies where there are none. That would be weird.

This dress is a collaboration between Cynthia Rowley and artist Olaf Breuning, and it’s been produced for the exhibition The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011 by Damien Hirst. So, even more than most items we show you here, this one is OMGART, and thus not allowed to be criticised, according to Fashion Victims. (Fashion Victims, we’ve found, are strangely narrow-minded when it comes to such things, believing that all art is good art. Huh.) That said, Colette are selling it for $470, and they’re selling it as an item of clothing, as opposed to something to put on display in your home, so what we want to know is, would you buy it? Would you wear it? (Or display it, for that matter?) Tell us!

P.S. There’s a slightly clearer version of the dress under the jump…
