Unsolved Mysteries: Dion Lee silk blazer with sleeve twist


This is described as a silk blazer with “sleeve twist”. The “twist” is that someone has chopped off the elbows. Because, honestly! Elbows! Who has elbows in their jackets any more? Elbows are just, like, SO last season! But this: this is edgy. it is creative. It does not, in any way, look like the designer was desperate to do something, anything, to be different, and thought, “I know, I’ll just chop the elbows off! And everyone will think it’s edgy!” Oh God, no.

It’ll cost you £502 to wear a jacket without elbows. If you wear it Lady Gaga style, as shown, with just a giant pair of knickers, it’ll possibly cost you considerably more, because The Fashion Police will catch you and fine you. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    This look does NOT work outside of Japanese RPGs.

    My favorite part is the model’s expressions. The first picture says, “You’re joking, right?”, and the second says, “Seriously. No.”

    This looks like the aftermath of domestic violence. Seriously. Like she ran into the street in whatever she could grab to flee from someone who is trying to kill her, and he ripped her sleeves to keep her from escaping. Ick.
