Alexander Wang and the unflattering sweater dress

This item was reported to us by an anonymous reader who probably wanted to try and dissociate themselves from what they described as “the most unflattering dress ever made”. Oh, come now: you know Martin Margiela and Comme des Garcons will just read that as a challenge!

Has Alexander Wang succeeded in making one of the most unflattering dresses ever? Well, we certainly think it’s up there, but if you disagree, you can buy it here.

    Is it by alexander wang or mcqueen? It’s one thing in the title and another in the article (although i highly doubt this horrible thing to be by mcqueen). Completly ugly and useless!

    Hahahahah! That’s frickin’ hilarious. It looks like a sumo costume.

    You have to wonder if the world of high fashion isn’t the world’s longest practical joke.

      I wonder what this dress is trying to achieve… Is it a kind of a confusing “drag-king” outfit? Is it trying to turn a slender female figure into a football player, or some kind of a bodybuilder with a skirt on? Is it trying to sell to men, who have strange fantasies with women who take steroids and demand their girlfriends to wear these in the bedroom? Oh please make the horrible thoughts stop… Too many images… Too much nausea…

    I thought it looked quite comfy for keeping warm at home in the winter – until I saw the holes.

    It looks like cheaply made samurai armour.

    Oh no!

    It’s sooo unflattering. I can’t see anyone making this look good. Well maybe Hans & Frans from classic SNL & even they will need to balance out the bottom half with something. Maybe a pair of Juicy trousers that read “Silly A$$” on the back.

    “We will break you for making us wear this”

    i mean for the sake of fashion as art i guess is fine–but to slap it on a model and expect people to buy it? not gonna happen. hideous. linebacker-esque.

    This could have worked out well if the sleeves weren’t so wide.
