“Leg window” fashion crimes on the rise: Karl Lagerfeld is latest culprit

A mini for the modest

We thought that yesterday’s Boutique skirt crime was an isolated incident, the work of a solitary madman, but we’re sorry to report that we were wrong about that.

Readers, there are more of them. They’re out there. They seem to be labouring under the illusion that you can make a very short skirt seem more respectable by adding a sheer panel to the bottom of it: they’re wrong.

This particular offender is by Karl Lagerfeld, and costs £365. We’re hoping this isn’t the start of a new trend: be vigilant, readers!

    Another pointless use of see-through fabric.

    This is clearly the designers’ answer to all the complaints about shresses showing your underwear. Just wait – the trouser version will appear next…

    it all seems so 1992 to me with the tailored mini and the sheer part…i didn’t think dear karl would want to appear to be borrowing a tired old trend…granted i think he missed that style then as he was trying to make (anyone else remember this…i believe he said it to jeanne beker on fashion file) “ze pussy” be the focal point of his outfits and presented minis with the crotch area cut out…oh karl…he is quite a treasure
