Style on Trial: Rochas brocade skinny pants

Woah, man, these pants are, like, totally awesome! Like really, way out! If I stare long enough, I can totally, like, see stuff in them! Sweet, dude!

Of course, if you’re not a seventies hippy throwback, you might find reason to question the design of these trousers. If, for example, the idea of camel toe doesn’t appeal, a pattern which emphasises the area may not be to your taste. Similarly, if you’d rather minimise your thighs, big circular targets highlighting each individually might not create the desired effect.

Or maybe you’re tall and svelte and want to play up the 70s revival, in which case these brocade trousers, teamed with wooden platforms and loose flowing locks could be the perfect solution! If so you can grab a pair from Net-a-Porter for £985.

What do you think? Yay or Nay?

    I don’t think these should be on trial!

    They should be found guilty without trial. Truly Shocking! £985! Can’t believe someone would pay that! Eeek!

      I completely agree with this comment. They’re hideous.

    Nay. At Woodstock, great. But then we need a time machine and who would have this amount at Woodstock?

    Are you sure they’re not actually £8.95! Which is probably more like what people paid when they actually went to Woodstock. I’d wear them if I was very tall and slim and hippyish – which unfortunately I’m not.

    I think these could work on the right person. But the seventies revival isn’t really doing it for me. 60s revival, heck yeah. 80s revival, fashion hell, but at least there’s 80s-doing-40s. There is no silver lining for me in a 70s revisit.

    the pattern is terrible…did the designer use their great aunt gert’s old curtains from 1971 to make these? i think even tall svelte hippies would turn these down
