Clothes With Holes: Junya Watanabe Keyhole Pinstripe Jacket

"I feel like something's missing...?"

Uh-oh. Looks like someone’s played a horrible  joke on this poor model, creeping up behind her and snipping a hole in her $1,275 jacket while she wasn’t looking. Kids can be so cruel, can’t they?

The thing that confuses us most about this jacket is that the front is pretty ordinary, and looks like the kind of thing you’d be required to wear if you worked in a bank, say, or some other office with a formal dress code. We doubt those kind of employers would appreciate the gaping hole in the back, though, and while we’re assuming the contrast is supposed to be part of the charm, we’re still seeing a cruel practical joke here.

If you’re seeing something else – something good enough to pay $1,275 for – this is available at Bergdorf Goodman.

    $1,275? I think the presence of the hole should enable me to a discount.

    I rather like it, actually. It’s stylish and elegant, yet a bit quirky. Though way too expansive!

    wow thats alot of money! it seems like these days the less actual fabric there is the more something costs. in a way it has its own interesting appeal – if nothing else it will cause a conversation! the person working at the bank who wants to buy this will have to rob it first to afford it!
