Clothes Shredder Strikes Again: Panel skirt by Mark Fast for Topshop

Panel skirt by Mark Fast for TopshopLooks like this skirt got caught on a several rusty nails and the whole thing has started to unravel.  What’s that you say Topshop?  Oh it’s supposed to look like that is it?  Then why are you charging £80 for it when it’s falling to pieces?  We were relieved to discover on closer inspection that you do get a white underskirt part for your money as well, not just the threads, but still, £80?  Come on Topshop, you know us better than that.  We’re arresting you for Daylight Robbery.

If you disagree and think that this skirt is value for money (and someone must, it’s already sold out in a size 8 despite being in the New In section), then you can buy it here.

    I think it looks quite interesting, because the pattern isn’t printed, but made by the structure of the skirt (I hope you get, what I want to say, I’m not a native speaker and don’t know how to express it in a better way).
    But I wouldn’t buy it – here in Germany cou can get very similar skirts for less the quarter of this price. You don’t get an underskirt with it, though. You can wear such skirts over other skirts in different colors, it’s like buying a pattern for your skirts.

    Pretty. I’d wear it. I wouldn’t buy it at that price tag though! $50 max.

    Also, isn’t the shred look kind of Fast’s “thing”? I don’t see much of his stuff on this side of the ocean, but I seem to remember his fashion show having a lot of the “shattered” look.
