Unravelled: Tim Ryan’s knit dress with ripped front

Oh, no! You pay £445 / $642 for a new dress, and then you go and snag it on something first time you wear it, causing the front to totally unravel, revealing that dingy grey bra you threw on underneath! How embarrassing!

Of course, one way to avoid such embarrassment is to buy the dress pre-ripped, like this Tim Ryan knit dress. That way it’s no longer a once-ordinary dress that’s now been totally ruined by your clumsiness, it’s a fashion-forward collector’s item, and everyone will look at you in wonder and call you “edgy”: awesome!

What do you think, readers? Are you off to your closets to try and unravel an existing dress right now, or will you just splash the cash on this one? Tell us!

    This is the kind of stuff that inspires nightmares. It’s a wonder how these designers don’t die of fright at their own creations.

    Reminds me of that “casual friday” episode on The Office

    “Meredith your boob is out!”

    Imagine snagging yourself on something because of the strings hanging off your sweater.

    I actually think it’s really pretty! I like it alot.
    It also provides a use for all those “bustier” or “bra” tops we see everywhere nowadays, that all the designers are producing yet no one knows what to wear with? You could wear one underneath this!

    The dress would be disgusting WITHOUT the weird ripped part…
