Prada’s sheer disgrace pants: the most blatant case of Daylight Robbery yet

Prada-sheer-pants

Did people really learn NOTHING from the story of the Emperor's new clothes? Because Miuccia Prada must surely have laughed all the way to the bank the day she realised she could charge people £228 a time to basically walk around naked, no?

(And OK, these have been reduced to £155 at Yoox.com, but that's still about, oh, £155 too much for us…)

    I’m going to start screaming. If at least ONCE they could style the things to justify their sheerness, I could at least tolerate their existence, but come on, a navy blue t-shirt is the best they could do? I mean, even Lady Gaga doesn’t wear these things! And Prada?!? Gah.

    This really is a shame that they are sheer, because the shape really IS nice. That cut and a solid (non-sheer) color would actually make me buy them at that price.

    From Madelaines comment, maybe this is a route to take? A sheer version of trousers, so you can see the fit, before you buy them online,and discover, they’re totally different from the picture on your computer?
    It’s really the only reason for sheer trousers I can think of!

    Scarlett had a good idea making a garment out of curtains, but hers were VELVET curtains. As in OPAQUE. Take note, Miuccia. Opaque curtains, not hotel sheers, do a garment make.

    I only imagine one single person wearing these pants in public and that is Lady Gaga.

    For the first time, I actually spotted someone wearing shants in public. They look just as bad in person as they do on screen.

    I agree with the idea of sheer pants to demonstrate how they fit on the model though. A bit like the clear demonstrator fountain pens.
