Unsolved Mysteries: Acne ‘Gladys Light’ grey sweater

Acne Gladys light sweater

Something’s missing here.

Over the years we’ve been policing the world of fashion, we’ve come to the conclusion that  fashion victims live in a completely different climate from the rest of us. In fashion land, it’s always warm enough for shorts… but also cold enough for boots. It’s cold enough for the fashionista’s favourite thing – LAYERING, and LOTS OF IT – but at the same time warm enough for bare legs and sandals. And today we learn that in the land of the fashionable, it’s often cold enough to need a thick-knick sweater… but simultaneously so warm that you’d want to hack a huge square out of the front of it, exposing your naked body from nipple to clavicle.

We want to know where this place is, that has such an incomprehensible climate. Failing that, we’ll settle for knowing where the fashionistas are going dressed like this. Seriously, where would you wear this sweater? It’s not work appropriate; it’s not particularly “casual”, but it’s not really “dressy” either. But, you know, you paid £170 for it, you better be going to wear it. So, where?

    … with sunglasses. And leather pants. I’m confused. Clearly can’t wear a bra under it yet it’s thin or loosely knit enough that it’s a bit see through on the titties. What would one have on one’s feet? Sandals? Oh, no. Don’t I remember you showing us some Peep-Toe-Clydesdale boots a few weeks ago? Perfect.

    How on earth does this thing stay up? it is loose, it is soft, it is probably saggy, how do you manage to stay covered? With double faced adhesive tape?

    To anybody skilled in technology, it is clear that the inhabitants of fashionland must have built-in heat exchangers all over their body. You know, that thing that can transfer heat or cold from one place to another. The feet are very warm in their ugg boots, so the heat is transfered to the naked legs. Engineering 101.

      I bet it stays up with liberal use of tape. I’ve heard that’s what all the models/celebrities use to make things stay put.

      If it didn’t have that window, it’d be a very pretty little sweater.
