Crime of Fashion: Daniel Palillo mesh leggings

Daniel Palillo mesh leggings

We’re just two days into March, and we think we’ve already arrested 2012’s biggest crime of fashion: these Daniel Palillo mesh leggings, which are $176 here.

Actually, scratch that: these aren’t just the ugliest items of the year so far: we think they may be the ugliest – and most inexplicable – items of all time:

ugly leggings

If you can think of a reason why these need to exist, we’d be fascinated to hear it.

(Please note that the peep-toe boot rule is in effect here. Although, in this case, we really don’t think we’d have needed the ugly shoes to let us know that this is, indeed, a Crime of Fashion…)

[Thanks to Frida for the report!]

    Are they at least pockets?

      Ug, Lili, imagine them with stuff in them! They would under the weight, and look even worse, plus everyone would know exactly what you had in your pockets! The whole concept is hideous. *shudder*

    !!!!!

    Those are…. really, really gross. The first thing that came to mind when I saw the silhouette was alien, fungal growths that would shortly burst and spray some unfortunate person with highly infectious slime. Blech.

      Its only a matter of time before the first pants-to-human infection is reported.

    Not to be vulgar, but those leggings caught the warts. Or massive boils.

    Ick – the designer’s name (palillo) even sounds a little bit like “papilloma.”

    I agree……THE UGLIEST pants I’ve probably ever seen! Makes no sense whatsoever! (By the way…I put “like” on the page but that was for the comments NOT the pants!!)

    I actually found myself frowning in shock at the computer screen when these showed up!!! Ew, imagine bumping into someone wearing those leggings in a crowded place… I would be creeped out! Definitely agree with previous comments that they look like some kind of growths…..bleh…..

      That would be one way to make these acceptable – fill them with beer to share with people who get grossed out by your growths. Nice!

    So, who else is thinking about the movie ‘alien’ right now? Or that leftover sandwich you once found in the back of your schoollocker after six months or so?

    I think it is sad that I actually didn’t notice the shoes until many moments later, the pants were so hideous. After the shock wore off, I noticed that the boots were not only peep-toe, but peep-heel as well! Will the horror never end?

    They would be great IF you have a hamster you keep in your pants that needs the occasional glimpse of the outside world

    I guess I’m the lone voice of dissent here, because I love these. There are quite a few outfits I like that use these over at Polyvore.

    They make me think of bubblewrap. Actually, if the pouches (or whatever they are) were bubblewrap pockets they’d look better.
