Fendi’s full-sleeve circle print shirt: business in the front, party at the sides…

Fendi_shirt

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, standing before you in the dock today we have a shirt which stands accused of committing crimes against fashion. It’s Fendi’s full sleeved circle print shirt, and the prosecution and defense will now state their cases both for and against the accused…

The Case for the Prosecution:

So, as soon as we laid eyes on this, we laughed. Seriously, that’s never a good sign, is it? Also, it looks like an over-enthusiastic art college project: also not always a good thing.

The Case for the Defense:

Oh, this is just so flamboyant! Like, you could totally go flamenco dancing in it and everyone would love it! You know who else would love it? Elton John. And maybe Shirley Bassey. It’s floaty! It’s sassy! It’s the ultimate marriage of the safe old dress shirt with another, much more fabulous world! 

Prosecution:

Look, ultimately this shirt needs to decide what it wants to be. Is it the kind of sensible white shirt you’d wear to work if you really had to, or is it going out dancing later tonight?

Defense:

Dancing!

Over to you, jurors, is it guilty or innocent?

    Love it! Flamboyant IS the word. But then again, most of my clothes look like I’ve nicked them from Elton John’s or Freddie Mercury’s wardrobe.

    I sorta like the colours, but it has a definite taste of Mehican bandito about it, which I think (unless you actually had a luxuriant moustache) would probably be pretty tough to pull off.

    Well, hinting that Elton John might love it should be a warning already…

    OlĂ©! Can’t you just hear the castanets?
    This is what Mexican fashion desperados wear when they’re on the run from the law!
    I hate it, but I love that Steph said “luxuriant mustache” above. Maybe that’s the key to pulling off anything.
