Style on Trial: hairy jumper by Kate Moss for Topshop

Hairy_jumperOf all of the items of clothing in Kate Moss’ latest collection for Topshop, this is the one that puzzles us most. Because it’s a hairy jumper. Yes, a hairy jumper – words to strike fear into our hearts if ever we heard them. Now, The Fashion Police aren’t really down with hairy jumpers, and we suspect the reasons for this are probably self-explanatory (the fact that you’ll look almost exactly like a bear in it figures highly, though), but we have to assume there was some reason why Kate Moss and the good people at Topshop decided this had to be made available to the public, so we’re putting it up On Trial.

It’s available in either black or grey, is £45, and, lest you forget, is a hairy jumper. What do you think, readers: a crime of fashion, or just a great way to keep warm in the winter?

    It does look warm…
    But it also looks hairy. I don’t want to look like a small, grey yeti just to be warm.

    I do find all these new textures interesting (feather skirts, and now hairy jumpers) but I can’t help thinking it would add a stone to practically anyone who wore it, making them unnecessarily bulky. I can’t imagine this is a look most women aspire to!

    It’s like a wearable pet. I suspect that the resemblance to a pet would include that it sheds on anything you try to wear it with.

    Um no. Just no. It’s hairy for God’s sake. HAIRY. Generally speaking, if something’s hairy, it’s probably a fashion crime.

    Well, at least the dog hair wouldn’t show up on it, probably. 🙂 But … no.

    Meh, I’m not appalled by it, but not for me.

    I’d be tempted if it came in a brownish grey or greyish brown. The black looks horrible though – cheap and shiny.

    Who amongst you has spent time and money on waxing, hmm? Then, why on earth would you put on something that makes you look…HAIRY?

    Looks like a Cookie Monster costume to me.
    Comes handy for Halloween, otherwise, NO.
