You know, I am all down for high fashion. In fact, I fully support it. The reason the big-name designers make the equally big bucks is because they were the ones that dared to take an unheard of idea and turn into an iconic and artistic expression that you can freaking wear. In the fashion world risk and unlikely match-ups are what get you noticed and, for a well known designer like Dolce & Gabbana, its what you have to do to keep your design aesthetic unique and fresh.
But this has gone way past unique and fresh. It is now happily settled somewhere between the borders of cuckoo and hideous.
I mean, come on now. There are bold, fashion-forward design choices then there’s just a pure lack of taste. Who in their right minds would see this on a rack somewhere and seriously go “Hmm, that looks good.”
Let me put it in perspective for you:
Imagine you eating a slice of pizza and then leaving the cheese-stuffed crust behind. Now imagine you took that leftover cheese crust and attached it to piece of salmon or like, a pineapple or whatever. Sure, you can still eat it, but do you really want to?
That’s kind of what Dolce & Gabbana did with this thing. What would you even call it? Jeans? Cargo shorts? Jecargorts? (In the same spirit as the skirt and short combo: THE SKORT).
Bottom line: Please don’t wear this, fellas. It’s irredeemably ugly and, also looks somewhat uncomfortable in the waist line area. Take it from a girl who’s got your best interest at heart here and just don’t.
Although, of course, I’m sure some people will still happily shell out the big bucks and risk looking like a malformed cross between a frat boy and a grunge bass player just so they can say they got it from Dolce & Gabbana.
To those people, step right over here.
All my love!
