The Fashion Police has a new mascot

Scarf shaped like a fox

Look, it could be worse.

Obviously it couldn’t be MUCH worse. It doesn’t really GET much worse than a $370 designer scarf which looks like roadkill, but seriously, it could’ve been a REAL fox (it’s actually mohair), and at this point, that wouldn’t really surprise us, considering that this is, after all, Jeremy Scott we’re dealing with.

(And yes, this is a SCARF you’re looking at, not the beloved stuffed toy of your childhood: the one you dragged around everywhere until it started to fall apart, but still you wouldn’t give it up because you loved it THAT much…)

Oh, wait:

Fox scarf in different coloursWell, wouldya look at that: it DID get worse! There’s no way you’d look stupid in one of those, now is there?

Scarf of foxesOh. Our mistake.

In all honesty, this wouldn’t bother us so much if it wasn’t $370. We’d still side-eye it, of course, believing it to be the kind of accessory worn by people who try painfully hard to demonstrate how “wacky” they are (Self-consciously “wacky” people are always the most boring people alive, don’t you find?), but if it was cheap, meh, whatever. But the idea of people paying almost $400 to wear something like this? That’s worthy of a Fashion Police arrest.

We’re not going to arrest this, though: we have too much of a soft spot for stuffed animals to do that. Instead, we’re going to keep it and make it our mascot. Every Force needs a mascot, after all…

    LOL, that thing is butt ugly! You should stuff it and hang it on the wall in TFP’s HQ!

    I firmly believe that wacky/alternative/indie/hippie/”unexpected”/whatever is the new mainstream. Whatever happened to just looking good?

    Y’know those dog toys that have no stuffing in them because the dogs would rip them apart and eat the stuffing? Yeah, apparently, that’s fashionable now.
    I think I may go downstairs and grab my new scarf from off of the floor. But which one shall I choose? Roadkill flamingo, deflated duck, or a raccoon that was stretched on a Medieval torture rack?
    Seriously, I have no problem with stuff that’s “wacky”. In fact, I encourage wackiness. But come on. This just makes you look like a mental patient. Like the type of person that would name their “scarf” and take it on walks about town, dragging it behind them on a string.

    These remind me of those creatures from the movie Labyrinth that could remove their heads. Creepy.

    I think they’re sort of adorable, but not as clothing, and not for that much money. Maybe it is because being away at school makes me miss my dog so much I SQUEE at anything remotely fuzzy. Unfortunately, the only critters my college campus has are squirrels. 🙁 I would like one of these as a pet. It would at least be allowed in the dorms. (However, I would definitely not wear it.)

    If the muli-coloured scarf weren’t expensive I’d definitely wear it at home when the weather’s cold. And I suppose it could be a good tactic for people in offices that aren’t properly heated in the winter…

    It doesn’t look bad by itself.
