DRKSHDW by Rick Owens skinny zipped-flare jeansSo you’re getting dressed and you can’t decide whether to wear skinny jeans or flared ones.  What to do?  It’s Rick Owens to the rescue!  In he swoops to solve your dilemma with his magical zip up jeans.  Put them on as skinnies, unzip and hey presto!

Flares!

We think they look a little strange either way – the ankles are bunched up when the zips are zipped, and the flare section is wrinkled and messy when the zips are unzipped.

What do you think you think though?  Would you buy 2-in-1 jeans or would you rather have two separate pairs?  If you like these, you can buy them at Net-A-Porter for £355.

    Those are probably extremely uncomfortable zipped up. And extremely ugly unzipped.

    Ditto Aleutie. For the price of one of these you can easily buy two or more regular jeans, skinny, flared or whatever style suits you best.

    I actually really like the way the skinny jeans look with the zippers going all the way up. They’d probably be uncomfortable/bulky with all that fabric stuck inside, though.

    And, more importantly – the flare jeans are goofy as hell. The contrasting fabric reminds me of how I NEEDED flares in 4th grade so my mom sewed insets into my normal jeans.

    I think someone who can make up their mind to buy THAT for 355 pounds, would very well make up their mind whether to wear flared or fitted!!!
