Clever or Creepy? Maison Martin Margiela two-tone leggings

maison martin margiela two-tone leggings

“Um, what gives, Fashion Police?” we can almost hear you thinking. “Why are you showing us someone’s legs in a pair of plain black shorts? That’s no crime of fashion!”

Look again.

Look closer.

Look particularly closely at the wrinkles around the ankles. Realise that those aren’t “legs” you’re looking at: they’re leggings. And they’re leggings which are designed to look like legs.

Yup, Maison Martin Margiela is at it again, with the whole “clothes designed to look like you’re not wearing any clothes” thing. And we’re still wondering a) WHY? and b) what on earth people who don’t have this exact shade of skin are supposed to do? It’s not really a case of “one skin tone suits all”, here, is it?

Say you DO have this particular shade of skin, though? Do you think these are a clever way to allow you to look like you’re wearing shorts, without actually having to wear them? Or do you find them just a little bit creepy? If you answered “yes” to the first question and “no” to the second, you can click here to buy them at Far Fetch, where they’re £324.

    And why do I want it to look as if my ankles are saggy?
