Style On Trial: Alberta Ferretti lips print top

Fashion magazines will often tell you to let a statement piece of clothing ‘do the talking’ in your outfit.  We’re not sure they meant for designers to take it this literally though, by placing lips all over the garment.  This print by Alberta Ferretti also features eyes and butterflies, which makes for an interesting combination.  Net-A-Porter call it ‘a feel-good style for summer’, we just think will make anyone looking at you wearing it feel like they are being watched.  It does feature a bow though, which we are very partial to, but we are not sure that will be enough to make us overlook the print.  And be warned: we have also seen a dress and shorts in this print.

What do you think though?  Would you wear a top featuring lips and eyes?  Will ears and noses be next?  If you like this linen top and would buy it, it is £259 from Net-A-Porter.

    I kind of like it cos empire tops look really good on me. But £259? No freaking way.

    I like its shape and I think the main colours are really nice, but when I realized that there were lips… And then you talked about the eyes… No thanks. And £259 (WTF!).

    They should have stayed with butterfly theme and had insect eyes and proboscises instead of human lips and eyes – might have been pretty then.

    My first thought was the lips from the Rocky Horror show logo.

    “Fine, with simple dark wash skinny jeans and heels.” was my first thought… BUT THEN I SAW THE EYES…
