A different kind of “meat dress”, by The Rodnik Band

Did you think Lady Gaga had the monopoly on “meat” dresses? We think you’ll find that’s just not true:

The model’s face says it all, really, doesn’t it? It’s like she got dressed in the dark, and has only just realised what she’s wearing: a giant ham, basically. A sequinned one, though, obviously. Well, you wouldn’t be caught dead in a NON-sequinned ham, would you? The very thought!

We’ve met the Rodnik Band, creators of this dress, before, of course. It’s the brand behind the infamous “urinal dress” and its sister, the “nude dress“, and it’s also the band which can turn your dream of dressing like a banana, a washing machine, or a piece of cheese into a reality:

If none of those work for you, however, maybe the cigarette dress will be more to your taste?

All of  these, as you’ll have gathered, fall more into the category of “wearable art” than of simple “fashion”. They’re hand-sewn, limited edition (only five cigarette dresses were made, for instance), and all cost upwards of £1000. They’re probably not the most practical items of clothing you’ll ever come across, but then again, “practical” isn’t really the point of these, is it?

If you want to buy one, you can place your order at Not Just a Label, which has a wide selection of Rodnik band items available. But which one will you go for? Ham? Cheese? Cigarette? Er, urinal? It’s up to you…

    Haha, funny! The ham and cheese dresses are just like Tom & Jerry’s dreams come true! If I had to pick one, I’d go for the banana peplum dress. I’d be one hell of a stylish banana – but I would try to keep my tongue in my mouth, though, so as not to ruin the ladylike effect of the dress!

    Oh god, EW.
    i might be just a first year fashion student, but even i know you are not supposed to take your “inspiration” literately. The last picture even has an MS paint background.
    Also, isn´t the whole point of dressing yourself with style is that you can feel good about yourself?
    How are those dresses supposed to make you feel when you wear them? like a washing machine? a cigar? who wants that?!

    …I don’t know how to feel about these. They are giving me very complicated emotions.
    One one hand, dressing like a ham or a washing machine has a sort of appeal to it, like sirens calling you to crash against rocks and die. I mean, seriously, it’s kind of cool to think that you can walk around looking like a cube of cartoon cheese.

    On the other hand, WHY?
