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?

    Would I wear it? On a cold day and if I didn’t have to buy it.
    How would I wear it? Under an abaya.

    I like Gareth Pugh’s shows, they’re a true spectacle and a trip to fantasyland.
    This does not mean that I’d wear his clothes.

    No. No, no, no, no, no.
    It makes my eyes hurt. Make it go away.
    btw- An abaya is an overgarment worn by some Muslim women that covers the entire body except for the face, feet and hands.

    This is so ugly!!! Even with some accessories, it still scaring me! To wear this, I would have to be blind and very very stupid.

    How does one go to the toilet in it? Seriously.
    You could try it with a short black skirt and a fitted jacket, knee high black boots. And a whip. Very Emma Peel.
    And then I am serious worried about toileting issues!

    Oh hell, I would not wear this even if they paid me what it costs.
    Put this in the pile with the crocs, douse it with petrol and set it aflame, please.

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…

    well, it is interesting from a pattern-cutting point of view… but beyond that, scarey!

    Hahaha, just like the scary spiky shoes featured a while ago, this would be great for creating personal space on the bus.

    This looks like something from a cheesy Scifi show from the late 70s, worn by the kind of alien badass woman Capt. Kirk would have wooed.
