Comme des Garcons in stuck-together-clothes offense

Comme des stuck-together-clothes

Last year, Comme des Garcons brought us what we thought may well have been the ugliest dress of the year.

This year we think they’ve already put themselves into the running for the same honour with this outstanding example of stuck-together clothes. This dress combines a strangely utilitarian “jacket” top with a satin skirt, creating the impression of having carelessly thrown an old army surplus jacket over a formal gown. And, of course, when you put it like that, it doesn’t sound too bad: is it, though? If you love it, it’s £285 at Yoox.com.

    I think it looks more like a badly fitting shirt sewn to some parachute material by someone who was very, very drunk. (It’s worth following the link and zooming in, to see just how horrible it is.)

    I find the whole horrible effect capped off by how wrinkled the skirt portion is. They couldn’t bother to steam it before shooting, I guess? What sort of way is this to sell clothing? Terrible from top to (wrinkled) bottom.

    are we sure the bottom part isn’t some terrible wide legged trouser?
    shame really…the jacket alone would be cute…expect for the boob button stretching action…which come to think of it makes me recant my cute observation…if it gapes like that on that girl i’d hate to see it on a more generous chest

    Looks like something your kooky neighbourhood bag lady would salvage from rubbish bins and wear, and I don’t know about you but that’s not a look I’ve ever aspired to.

    I love the color of the wrinkled stuck-together satin skirt- and that’s all I love, the rest is positively unsightly!
