The Emperor’s New Dsquared2 PVC OVERSIZE PONCHO COAT

We’ve spoken about clear raincoats before here at The Fashion Police, and our opinion has always been that while we like the idea of outerwear that doesn’t conceal the outfit underneath, they’re not something we’d want to pay a huge amount of money.

For us, £912/ $1357 qualifies as “a huge amount of money”, and there’s another reason we wouldn’t want to buy this Dsquared2 poncho, too: the fact that it comes with two bags attached to the front of it. (Sure Louisa Via Roma describe them as “pockets”, but we know a bag when we see one, and we’re sure you all know how we feel about Stuck Together Clothes).

Also, does anyone else think this would’ve been better without the neon pink? Then it would be almost invisible!

    I think the worst part is that it’s so oversized!
    I think the clear-jacket idea works best with a fitted trench-coat shape, not a baggy poncho! It looks like the model got caught in a stray plastic bag. -_-

    I see it’s adhering to the peep-toe boot rule.

    did we really need a designer version of those cheesy clear raincoats that used to come all folded up in a wallet size packet for 10 bucks? really?!?!

    I initially thought the neon pink bits were photoshopped onto the picture! And really, one does not want to walk around looking like a badly photoshopped picture from the 1980s.
