Wear or Die | Comme des Garcons Fall 2014 Edition

There’s good news with this week’s edition of Wear or Die: the game in which you must choose to wear one of two ugly outfits – or die. [Insert evil laugh here.]

The good news? These AREN’T the two outfits we’re going to ask you to choose between:

Seriously, you’d just choose death, wouldn’t you. Even although – say it with us, people – DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION. But while these two looks may arguably be considered “art”, when it comes to actually trying to WEAR them, we forsee a slight problem – which is more than can be said for the wearer or these outfits, who wouldn’t be able to see much at all. (Kudos to the models in this show, by the way. We’re guessing the fabric must be sheerer than it looks, allowing them to see through it to some extent, but it still can’t be easy to walk with your vision obscured like this. Modelling is HARD, as we know. And we must all suffer for fashion, apparently.) Now, because we DO actually like our readers, and don’t want to see any of you suffer THAT much in the name of fashion, we’re not going to force you to choose between these two looks. We did mention some bad news, however, and here it is:

Yes, THESE are the outfits we’re going to make you choose between. We hope you weren’t too attached to your arms: you’re not going to be seeing them for a while in these.

You should know the rules by now, but just in case you’re new to TFP, here’s a quick reminder:

1. You must choose one of the two outfits above to wear, IN PUBLIC, and without modifications.

2. If you don’t choose one of the two outfits, you die. Whoops.

3. Death is not an option.

So, let’s hear it: which of these two interesting pieces of outerwear would you choose to wear, if you had to wear one, or die?

    I would go with the one on the left. It’s kind of how I’ve been dressing this winter anyway – bundle up and throw a huge scarf (or blanket) around me. Subzero temps make me crazy.

    Me too – the left one. The right one has a sort of “Dune” sandworm look to it, or rather as if I stripped a sofa because I had no coat. The left one at least looks like clothing, though weird.

    These leggings – are they a photorealistic print, or what?

    WTF am I even looking at? These would look weird at a science fiction convention! At least with the top ones, no one would see your face. So.

    I would pick the one on the right, because the bottom sort of vaguely resembles a skirt, and I could pull my head into it if I saw anyone I knew.

    Definitely the one on the left: the mixed colors give a somewhat organic effect; the shape reminds me of a tree, and the stockings work well as a bark texture. Then there is the white fluffy effect of the hair which could be a nest, plus, my hair is that color naturally now. Add a couple of pretty blue eggs, a pretend-robin perched on top and what’s not to love for a spring outfit? I did not choose number two because it reminds me of a straight jacket and is way too similar in shape to my actual body. If I’m gonna wear OMG DESIGNER, I want to look better than I normally do!

      Sharon, where do you live that the trees are shades of navy blue?

        In a happy weird imagination. Worse yet(?)I’m an old artist who colors outside the lines and runs with scissors. 😉

    The one on the left. I live on a college campus, so everyone would just assume I had a cold or something. Or was running on only a few hours of sleep a week. I probably would forgo the aqua lipstick though.
