Multi-functional fashion part 2: Maison Martin Margiela’s purse dress

Naked_dress When we first came across this dress, we thought it was just another one of Maison Martin Margiela’s "Make you look naked" numbers. Because, after all, doesn’t everyone want to look naked, even when they’re not?

After a few seconds, though, we got distracted by what looked at first sight to be some flabby flesh hanging from the model’s shoulder, and realised that this situation was worse than we’d at first thought, because this is not just a dress: this is a purse dress. You know: a dress that is also a purse. Praise be! At last we can keep our valuables close to our hearts – well, close to our boobs, at least – and we’ll never have to worry about mislaying our purse ever again, because it’ll be attached to us, always.

That kind of peace of mind just has to be worth $425 to you, no?

    Holy mother of god, why? It kinda reminds me of The Fifth Element if only because her shoes look like bandages and she’s practically naked. With a flabby flesh bit hanging off her arm.

    Just cause you have an idea doesn’t mean you use it.
