Recession Fashion: Acne’s patchwork dress

Patchwork_dress

Just in case you haven’t noticed, times are tough for a lot of people right now. In fact, times are so tough that the designers at Acne have clearly been reduced to using the off-cuts they found on the cutting room floor to put together this dress icon. The Fashion Police certainly admire this ‘Make Do and Mend’ spirit, but we’re a little confused by the price – £385 for something that looks like it was patched together during wartime? We don’t think so.

What about you, though, readers? Would you buy this?
