Unsolved Mysteries: Alexander Wang Geometric Off-shoulder Onesie

alexander-wang-playsuit

Ah, that magical moment when evening-wear and onesies collide!

We’re most confused by the tweed fabric used in this. When would you wear a tweed “onesie”? In some other fabric, and if, say, it had a skirt, rather than what appear to be cycling shorts at the bottom, it could just’ve worked – or at least been a whole lot less puzzling.

Of course, that would defeat the whole purpose of the tweed onesie, though, and Alexander Wang wouldn’t be able to charge $395 for it. Ah, fashion!

    Wearing something like this can really take you back to your childhood. And I mean this in a good way. I welcome the new playfulness trend. But that makes me wonder about what would a man like me be wearing?

    I’m having flashbacks to 1st grade, thinking to myself — how do you go to the bathroom in that? Do you have to take the whole thing OFF? Even if it wasn’t ugly, thanks, but no thanks.

    All I can think of is that the model pictured above was in a terrible zombie movie sequel based on a video game that aired on the SyFy channel (in the US) a couple of months ago.

    That said, I welcome this girl’s new utterly silent role in my life. A role without machine guns or blood-drenched, shredded sports bras. I can only hope that I remember her for this play-suit more strongly than for her ‘I had to kill the entire African village so the virus wouldn’t spread’ monologue.

    it very much emphasizes the crotch area and the stomach…just what everyone should be looking for in a garment

    If it were a shirt and made out of a different material, it’d be a nice shirt. Pity.

    Also: wtf I wouldn’t even wear a suit made out of tweed like that. That looks like it was made out of leavings, not proper wool. Ew.

    Two words: Camel Toe. And Karen’s right, you’d want to not be drinking anything while wearing that because going to the toilet is going to be time consuming, and possibly require yoga training.
