Fashion Police Detectives: Guess what it is?

Mystery-item

As we've said before,The Fashion Police are always deeply distrustful of items of clothing/accessories that can't be instantly identified. If it's a skirt, say, we want to be able to SEE that it's a skirt, and not mistake it for a handbag. And if it's a handbag, but it looks like a tuna fish, we're probably going to be alarmed.

With that in mind, we now ask you to play Fashion Police Detectives with us, and identify the item you see above. All we'll tell you is that it IS a fashion item of some kind: but what is it?

Place your guesses in the comments box, and check back later when all will be revealed!

EDIT: The answer has now been posted under the jump, so read on and all will be revealed…

And the object is………

Collar

A collar! For wearing around your neck:

Strange-collar

And it's pretty big, too:

Big-collar

 It's also on the expensive side, but if you want it (and we guess it would make a good head rest if you're having to fly somewhere), you can buy it here.

    A very strange bra, very handy if one boob is a lot bigger than the other?

    I was thinking a headband too. Perhaps a ridiculously large and ugly brooch?

    If you turn it around, you have a dress.
    Reminds me off a song… my heart is beating like a jungle drum.

    Bra? Mickey-Mouse style headband? Crikey – not a pair of nipple pompoms, surely?

    Moreso, why are the two um… “puffs” made of different materials? Could it be a mitten? Or perhaps a slipper?

    I was thinking about a hair bow, but know that I watch it closely, I believe it’s a dress.

    Headband. Although, knowing some designers, it could also pass as a belt.

    I’m going with headband. Because I hope to God it’s not a bra/bandeau top.

    I’m going with Brooch, because I recently saw ones just like those (I think there’s 2 there) at an art festival.

    I wouldn’t have guessed a collar.
    Fake hair, ear muffs, but not a collar.
    How very strange.

    um. i would love to see a pic of someone actually trying to rock this in the real world. this is ridiculous. it’s like someone took the top off their old ski hat, sewed it onto a priest’s collar and added the closest thing they could find to match it from the bin of old xmas wrapping remnants. why? why? why?

    It reminds me of the Harijuku style going on in Japan right now! It probably would sell out there. Google harajuku and you’ll see what i mean!
