Wipe-Clean Clothes: DSquared2 denim and PVC jeans

Well, this is certainly ONE way to make sure you never stain your shiny new jeans: and when we say “shiny”, we mean it literally in this case, because look at the gloss on these!

Now, granted, “gloss” is something we’re more used to associating with lipstick than with clothes, and these have a kind of “shrinkwrapped” look to them which makes us want to peel the top layer off them and get to the denim beneath. It would be like peeling the protective film off a brand new gadget, and it would actually be quite fun, although it would also completely defeat the purpose of these DSquared2 creations.

What do you think of them? Do you welcome the arrival of wipe-clean clothes, or do you prefer your denim to actually LOOK like denim? If you’re of the former opinion, these are £351 at Louisa Via Roma.

    Oh holy crap!
    These… look scary Oo
    kinda like the type of clothing you would get from a store that sells hooker clothing or something like that…
    And don’t overlook the fact that it is not even the whole jeans covered in plastik, but the top part is missing out on the shiny fabric.
    This is not pretty and somehow not flattering at all.
    Oh and I don’t know whats worse: the jeans or the shoes!

    Hopefully these are meant to be strictly clubwear. Clubwear is allowed to be quirky and strange.

    The jeans remind me of a scene from ‘Dexter’. And do answer Lucia’s question, I think the shoes.

    I’m not sure… I don’t like them, espicially in that vintage wash denim! Maybe in dark (like, nearly black) they would be okk, but I’m generally not a fan of any ‘wet look’ clothing!

    The first thing I thought of when I saw these was Sylvia’s plastic-covered furniture on The Nanny.
    What? It’s easy to clean! XD

    I still prefer my denim to look like denim! If these weren’t too shiny, they would make it big in the fashion market. But aren’t these a little susceptible to sweat smell? If that would be the case, wiping it alone will not suffice. I prefer the hard way of cleaning my jeans–that is using my washing machine (although it is not that hard at all). Also, PVC is chemical so it might not be ideal for people with sensitive skin.
