Alexander McQueen’s ‘Punk Pants’ – harem pants by any other name

Alecander-mcqueen-harem-pan

"Punk pants", eh? So that's what the kids are calling them these days. Interesting. We initially identified these as common-or-garden harem pants, but we're still not 100% sure whether the leggings are actually attached to the pants or just a bizarre styling decision by Shopbop. If they're attached, of course, this means they're up on two counts:

1. Having a ridiculously saggy crotch

2. Being clothes-that-are-stuck-together

The fact that they're definitely guilty on at least one of those counts gives us no hesitation in finding them guilty of committing crimes of fashion, but if you disagree, they're by Alexander McQueen, and they're $280 at Shopbop.

    I laughed at “common-or-garden harem pants”.
    Those are hideous.

    What possessed a man of fashion to label these as “punk”?
