Sixties Style on Trial: Miu Miu’s patent leather jacket

miu miu patent leather jacket

Hot on the heels of the jacket potato jacket, the Fashion Police bring you the PVC jacket!

There’s much working in favour of this item. The bow detailing is cute. The slant pockets are adorable. And it definitely has the sixties vibe going on – it is more than a little reminiscent of the kind of thing Twiggy might have modeled.

But just look at it and tell us, with a straight face, that you don’t see “bin bag”!

What do you think? Could you pull it off? If so you can buy it for €1,350.00 from My Theresa.

    Actually I see “cheesy official of totalitarian government from dated, low budget sci-fi”. This is a shame, because I think in a different material I would very much love this.

    I like it – the PVC’s too thick to make me think of bin bags.
