Gareth Pugh’s zigzag jumpsuit – £355 well spent. Not.

Zigzag_jumpsuit Another one for the "how the other half live" files, here. That there are people in the world who find £355 a reasonable price for a zigzag jumpsuit boggles our minds, but of course, the fact that there are people who’d pay any amount of money for a zigzag jumpsuit boggles our minds, so we can’t really talk, here.

Clearly those people have more money and better figures than us. Ah well.

If you are one of those people, this item can be purchased from Browns, and also has stirrups, although you can’t see them in this picture. We’re guessing a skirt over the top would make it a whole lot more acceptable to us, but not £355 more acceptable – there’s the rub.

Would you wear it? And if so, how would you wear it?

Gareth Pugh’s zip front sweater dress turns your shoulders into weapons of mass destruction

Gareth_pugh_dress

You know the expression "like a bull in a china shop"? We hate to think what kind of damage we could do in a china shop if we were to enter one wearing Gareth Pugh’s zip-front sweater dress. In fact, this is the kind of dress that would make waves everywhere you wore it – literally. Just imagine turning around in it while standing in a crowded bar, for instance, and watching as everyone around you was forced to hit the deck to avoid those shoulders. Interesting, but perhaps not all that convenient, we’d venture to suggest? And sure, you’d get to feel a little bit like a superhero (Big Shouldered Woman saves the world yet again! Er, maybe not…), but you’d also get to feel a lot like a cartoon character, and we don’t know about you, but that doesn’t tend to be the kind of look we’re generally after.

Also: good luck trying to fit a coat or jacket over the top of that dress! Unless, of course, the jacket in question happens to be Martin Margiela’s similarly wide shouldered leather number, in which case, that’s quite the shoulder fetish you have going on there, isn’t it?

Of course, if you disagree with all of this, and can’t wait to add this to your wardrobe, it’s £480 at Browns. Just promise you’ll be careful with those shoulders…
