Half cardigan, half fashion crime? Alexander Wang chunky asymmetric cardi

Alexander Wang chunky asymmetric cardiSo.  What we appear to have here is half a cardigan.  That is to say, a cardigan with only one sleeve on the right, and some kind of scarf or wrap on the left.  But that can’t be what it is as that would be madness, wouldn’t it?

No, we are sorry to report that this is in fact half a cardigan.  It is described as 100% cotton so those leather sleeves belong to whatever the model is wearing underneath it (presumably for warmth as that cardi isn’t going to be great at keeping out the chill with just one sleeve, is it?).  Ignoring the fact that this appears to have been styled with some kind of harem pant shorts (and that is a crime of fashion post in itself), would you wear this item?  Or should we file it away under Pointless Clothing and be done with it?

If you like it, and you have $375 to spend on half a cardigan, you can buy it here.

    Who buys this stuff? Why not just go to a thrift and find a cardigan that is only half good and cut off the good part? Crazy.

    I liked it before i realized it only has one sleeve. Attach another sleeve, then we’ll talk, Alexander Wang.

    If that had two sleeves I could imagine it actually being quite cosy. But one is just plain silly.

    i agree with Meagan. i like the look of it, very avant-garde, but a wee bit pointless since there’s only one sleeve….
