HOW did I miss this the first time around?
Love me some Tim Gunn. This is beautiful. The post I mean, not the outfit. Yikes.
That awkward pose isn’t an attempt to look good. It’s the only way the model could stand wearing a T-shirt as pants.
I’m not sure how they’re doing it, but I think there are at least 2 people in that outfit and one is hell of an acrobat.
They didn’t say they were trying to look good. They are “just trying to share [their] views with the world”. Turns out those are not good-looking views, that’s all.
I think this would look fantastic if it was drenched in gasoline and ignited!
A Derp that Helen didn’t catch: it was supposed to read “Crap Top”
This girl’s a mesh.
She looks strung out to me.
I’m pretty sure that this was a net loss.
I can see that this is making the rounds on the interwebs.
I can’t take it. Just sleeve.
Ease up; this is authentic Native American craft. A-Patchy, I believe.
You know what’s awesome about those pants?
Yea, neither do I.
I would throw that back into the water if I caught that. It’s like…”Rainbow Fish in Rehab”.
Q: What would you call this woman, wearing this, if she was throw in the ocean?
Where I live, if she was thrown into the ocean, some idiot would call Greenpeace.
I’d call the EPA.
Based on the look on the model’s face, she agrees with us. I have seldom seen a more depressed and irritated face, even in the hippest of the hipster cupcake corner.
It looks like there are amoebas on her arms
I think the sleeves are actually a deconstructed shower scrubby floof thing? Oh god
It looks like some jerks silly-stringed a mannequin.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
The top is the only thing even reasonably wearable out of the whole outfit… nice marketing job there… NOT!
Wait, which thing is for sale? Because to me it looks like the thing that’s a crop top isn’t printed and the thing that’s printed isn’t a crop top. And the only thing that’s loose is the crotch on the hoodie pants.
Yeah I’m not seeing a printed crop top here either. Maybe they meant to post this photo in their “super ugly crappy fake artistic emo jumpsuit” listing? That looks like a couple of Goodwill specials got into a fight and got stuck that way.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE A PARTICLE COLLIDER. The discovery of the Higgs Boson came at a terrible price.
I’m guessing the original listing had more than this one photo.
Oh, THIS is what inspired Miley Cyrus’s new hack job of a haircut!
So…Miley Cyrus shops at Urban Outfitters…the one right next to Shitty Yarn Projects -R- Us.
Hot mess. That’s all.
…Maybe my life is a case of FASHION, UR DOIN IT WRONG but I don’t get why these types of outfits (and the other ones you see on runways and in magazines) are considered ‘highly fashionable’ and ‘the new hot thing’ but yet you don’t ever see a person wearing them, even if they’re rich and live in a trendy city. I SO CONFUSE
Think of it this way – designers are artists who work with clothing, and the fashion show is their exhibit. Runway outfits are art, and you don’t wear art. Instead, retail chains and stores watch the show, pick an artist they like, and commission him or her to make stuff they can sell. What actually gets sold in most stores is a diluted version of what walked the runway.
Is that how fashion shows work? That makes sense. I’ve always wondered. Kinda like how award winning concept cars never see the streets, but the designs help define a car makers public offerings? (Guy perspective.)
So, Now You Know
“I would tell you to ‘make it work’, only Hobo outfits never do!”
Like the metallic leopard creepers though….had those in high school, 25 years ago!
Yes, the platform creepers are most excellent. Would totally wear. Even though the kids would surely be embarrassed.
Wouldn’t that be the whole point???
They don’t know that.
By the way, Mystik, I mentally read everything you add in Daria’s voice. I thought you should know that.
I thought she was a plastic mannequin. From the seventies. It’s the POSE.
I wear creepers and crazy ‘art’ students have ruined them
She’s given the cat a couple of balls of wool and it’s come up with Wearable Art. There is no sane or sober explanation for the rest of this stuff, though. Hang on a moment – maybe the explanation is no sane or sober?
It’s all just too much for me sometimes.
Now I know why my gut-instinct told me to go to F.I.T. instead of Parsons….
Suck it, F.I.T.!!! Your Fushion entries are always way too derivative. Plus we rank higher than you.
My cats would love this!
is she dating Sad Hipster Is sad?
At least they’re not saying its Steampunk?
Shuuussssshh – don’t give them ideas. One watch part or an owl charm and they’ll claim it is.
I’ll keep it on the down low.
I’m not sure, is she coming unraveled or is someone tying her up?
“In this week’s episode, Mr. Magoo tries an unexpected foray into fashion design.”
It looks like a hungry dragon ransacked a JoAnn Fabric’s and then regurgitated this.
It reminds me of a sea lion that swam into some detritus and got hopelessly entangled and drowned in old fishing line and plastic garbage.
THIS IS WHY WE RECYCLE, PEOPLE
…Maybe we should put it in a zoo. People would totally pay to observe its habits and wonderful plumage
I think the crop in question is some really good weed.
Bitch stole my look!
This looks like something I would wear to pick up my kids from school to punish them instead of grounding them.
Why is she wearing ripped basketball nets on her chest and legs?
I guess I am just not cool.
Dammit, girl!! The next time I catch you running through the trailer court’s laundry dryin’ on the lines, you’re gonna git it! And stop rippin’ up the clotheslines, too!
Hey, Three Parsons students, listen up! If this mess represents your “view of the world” you can just…wait, gimme that damned thing.
Now go get a real job so you can pay off those college loans.
Ahh, there we go.
…which would make you Postmenapplause?
Hey, 3 Parsons Students, Alan Parsons Project would like a word with you about wardrobe for a “music video” on “MTV”.
I’m pretty certain this is meant to depict the damage that happens to one’s back and posture when one dresses in a hurry in the dark onboard a ship full of rubbish. The finishing touches are acquired by flailing about wildly after falling overboard into a fishing net full of sticky electric jellyfish.
Or maybe it IS the cats.
It’s always the cats.
I feel as if this outfit needs a snood.
Some people just can’t let go of their Hammer pants and Susan Powter haircuts.
World view = “oh, shit. it’s 2 am, we’re fucked on ether and Mescaline. There’s a M.C. Hammer video playing on a loop. All we have is some yarn, some hideous drapes and a bottle of mustard. And our final project is due tomorrow…. Do not worry. Lesser designers would say give me another shot of tequila, and pass out. But we are designers with true grit. And we say give us more tequila and onto the sowing machines!!!”
As ye sow, so shall ye reap!
“…so shall ye rip.”
“And so shall ye frog. Yea, for then there will be string in abundance everywhere, even on thy legs.
She looks like she just wriggled her way out of the colon of a whale that swallowed an old folk’s home.
Metaphors: you win.
As my wise mentor who is 50 years my senior say:
“That’s very interesting.”
Translation: That’s crap that I would never wear or produce but I don’t understand kids now a days so I am saying something that doesn’t sound like a direct insult so I won’t hurt your feelings after all the hard work you put into it.
On a brighter note, I have those Doc Martins only in ankle boot top and they rock!
Tim Gunn is one of those people of whom I find it very easy to read things in his voice, especially when seeing it juxtaposed against a picture of him. You know, like Morgan Freeman.
So many. There are just. so. many. drugs in the world.
I’m calling Photoshop on the Giraffe Neck.
On the other had, I feel Cyndi Lauper would still totally rock this.
Hmm, it needs some brass goggles…
My dearly departed and deranged cat, Bertie, would emerge from a laundry-basket binge looking like this, only the shoes would be dangling from his ears instead of on his paws.
