The Plucked Ostrich Sweater

Last winter, the trend was lots of fur, feathers, and basically anything else that would drive home the point that you were wearing a dead animal on your body.

This year, however, it’s far cooler to look like you’re STILL wearing that animal, but it’s starting to look a little the worse for wear, hence the “plucked bird” effect. 

What do you think: cosy and cute, or just… a little bit sad?

    Wearing fur and feathers is just plain gross, especially when they’re still attached to the animal.

    Looks like one of those old highlighting caps but worn by an ostrich. (Or maybe a black haired wookie.)

    I think you can argue that ostrich feathers are a by-product of ostrich meat, so not equivalent to fur on ethical grounds.

    What really confuses me is the hole in the middle. Did the feather fall out?
