Maison Martin Margiela redefines the word “dungarees”

This is NOT a caped mini dress being worn with a pair of thigh-high boots, as amusing as that concept might be.

No, these are dungarees.

As in, the “thigh high boots” are actually leather chaps, which are attached to the “dress”, creating “dungarees”.

We feel like we’ve learned something today. For instance, we’ve learned there are people in the world who are willing to spend £1,690 on stuff like this. And that Maison Martin Margiela REALLY has a lot to answer for.

Are you one of them? Click here if you are…

If you’re not, meanwhile, just stay where you are and enjoy the back view:

    That would be pretty cool as a cyberpunk costume or something.

    It actually looks quite elegant (in a punk sort of way) from the back, but the front is just terrible.
