Fashion Crime? Michael Van Der Ham silk top with partial cape

“Silk top with partial cape.” As soon as we read the second part of that sentence, we knew we were dealing with a potential fashion infringer. Seriously, if it had been a FULL cape, that would’ve been one thing. Maybe not a great thing, admittedly, but at least it would’ve been a whole top, with a whole cape. This, on the other hand… well, at first glance we didn’t have a clue which part of the body this was supposed to adorn, and that’s always a bad sign, isn’t it? As we’ve always said, if we can’t even work out what it is, we’re probably going to arrest it, just to be on the safe side.

The model shot helps clarify matters slightly:

Still doesn’t make us want to pay £655 for it, though. Does it have that effect in you? Or do you think it looks like a badly-hung curtain, too?

    This top looks like my daughter’s first sewing attempt(bermuda shorts).
    It’s just silly looking.

    The first photo actually looks like a really bad Photoshop job!

    Is this one of those “Let’s make it particularly ugly on purpose and ask a ridiculous price for it, and then let’s laugh at all those who buy it because it’s DESIGNER” – cases?
    They can’t be serious about it!

    Is it possible that this could actually look good on anyone? Could anyone make this look decent? I am inclined to say…no.
