Do our hips look big in this? The pannier skirt makes a comeback

pannier skirt

Good news for those of you who’ve secretly always wanted to live in the 18th century (and seriously, WHO DOESN’T?): the huge-hipped look can now be yours, thanks to this pannier skirt by¬†Meadham Kirchoff.

Yes, it’s huge. Yes, it looks like antique underwear. Yes, it’s ¬£1,020. Yes, doorways may be a problem. And your hips WILL look big, we’re not gonna lie. So, basically, we have an item which is expensive, ridiculous and totally impractical: isn’t that what fashion’s all about?

    Wait, that’s a skirt? I love petticoats (have one myself), as long as they stay on the inside. That’s underwear as outerwear!

    I prefer petticoats to panniers…

    How do you ride a car in this, or even sit down, without having received the training of a rokoko cocotte?
