And it's only the first Monday in May.....
It is not everyday I start a post completely speechless...
Today I present to you the Butt cracker of all trends...
The best conversation starter of 2017, the ice breaker of all ice breakers "the" Vetements new jeans.
Do I need to say more?
I ran these by my rather alarmed girl friends over the weekend while researching for this post.
No surprise here, the general consensus was that perhaps these jeans are actually for boys of certain inclination's?
Or maybe best suited for those days following encounters with past sale by date oysters as even in times of distress one must be seen to be chic and what says chic more than Vetements?
Leading on to other questions such as;
# How do you wear these?
# Zipped fully?
# Zipped partially?
# What is the actual purpose of the cleft zipper? Fart vent?
# Has any normal person actually worn and carried these off?
# ????? to accommodate an expanding arse..
Shall we just say Comme Des no no and leave that there....
Like these were't bad enough, next came the grand master of trend "show me what you got", THE PLASTIC JEANS AKA see through Topshop jeans!!!! Like WTF is the world coming to?
I am actually convinced that a bunch of male designers meet up regularly, sit back and watch a slide show of misguided fashionistas in these ensembles with packs of beer totally laughing their heads off, then go off and come up with even worse absurdities which we then eagerly lap up at the risk of not being seen as fashionable.....victims
Are these boiler sauna pants? Like really, one's ass will surely combust in these in the heat of summer right??
How does one even wear these and to where? Is this a joke?
Definitely Comme Des Gar seriously???
Having said all that, I would have to say that I might be changing my view on what I once thought was the worst trend ever...
The trend of wearing fish net beneath now worries me, as what are we turning into next? Nun's? As surely this is too much coverage and almost at the level of Habits...none?
For the sake of ones sanity can we just stop already..
Just zip it, and retain some level of mystery.
What next ? Transparent tops with nothing underneath or just nothing?
What do you think? Am I just being backwards and not getting with the times? Is this fashion gone mad? Leave me a comment below..
Shall we toast today to the simplicity of innate style, to just saying BS and wearing what makes us look and feel good.....
To good old common sense...
