Acne make armoured jeans, world wonders why

Acne-armoured-jeans

Hot on the heels of Lindsay Lohan's padded knee leggings (a look that never really did catch on, did it?), Acne have decided to go one step further in the "reinforced knee" world, with these armour-plated skinnies, which will be part of their Spring 2010 collection. We can hardly wait.

Presumably designed for the girl who REALLY spends a lot of time on her knees, there's no word yet on how much these will retail for, but we'll try and update you nearer the time. Maybe.

Thanks to Theresa for the report!

    As someone who routinely walks into the coffee table, perhaps these leggings will prevent further shin related misadventure. In fact, I might as well go the whole hog and buy a suit of armour.

    It’s to protect herself from people who want to kick her for wearing such ugly clothes..

    I feel like the ugly shoes really add something, don’t you?

    What a racket that would make in the washer/dryer. And the shoes make it even worse. Why are her pant legs tucked into her shoes? And is she wearing an applique tee shirt with fringe sleeves?

    $1.00 for those would be $1.00 too much 😛

    Is it bad that I kind of thing these are cool? I wouldn’t wear them on an everyday basis, but I think they would be pretty cool for a costume…

    Casts a new light on the term “fembot,” but not in a good way.

    Ah, Road Warrior style. Must mean the collapse of civilization as we know it is near.

    I have a plastic viking helmet that would go great with these.
