Furry footwear: we’ve been trying hard to remember if there’s ever been an example of that particular look that we HAVEN’T considered to be a crime of fashion, but nope, we don’t think there has. In fact, we think we can declare with confidence that, as far as we’re concerned, the addition of fur to a shoe or boot will almost always add instant “Fashion Crime” status. Double-the-crime if it’s REAL fur that’s been used to uglify an item of clothing. Case in point:

Suspect # 1 | Pierre Hardy – Mixed Media Fur-Front Sneakers
To be fair, we’ve never been sneaker fans at the best of times, and that’s why you won’t see us hopping on board the “sports luxe” bandwagon any time soon. Is it just our bias against this particukar form of footwear that makes us think these fox-fur-embellished sneakers are crimes of fashion? You tell us.
Continuing with the fox fur theme…
Suspect# 2 | Fendi’s sold-out monster boots
These weren’t just arrested on suspicion of being furry footwear: we’ve also booked them for the crime of “having a face”. Well, do YOU want to walk around with faces on your feet? If you do, you’re out of luck: these muppet-like monster booties are now sold out. If you’re REALLY keep to wear clothes which have a face, though, you might like our next suspect:

Can anyone else see the lion’s face on the front of this coat? Please tell us you can see the lion’s face on the front of this coat…

Suspect # 4 | The Flower Skirt
We suspect some of you will really like this skirt, but it looks like a pile of dead leaves to our jaded eyes, and that’s just a little off-putting. We think it’s the shoes that REALLY pushed us over the edge here, though: they’re not TERRIBLE on their own, but combined with the skirt, they’re asking to be arrested.
So, what do you think, Fashion Police jurors? Are these items innocent or guilty as charged?
