Genius idea of the month

Women! Want to look like like an escaped jailbird on the run? Perhaps you reckon that tough, prison-hardened aesthetic is just the thing to combat this summer of fey florals and revolting ruffles. Maybe you want to look like everyone's favourite smackhead/crackhead/convict/generally distasteful and worrying tabloid hero/villain, Pete Doherty, mere minutes after replacing his Likely Lads suits for crim-wear on his latest visit to one of Her Madge's Pleasurable outposts.

Or maybe you just want to look like The Penguin.





Hurry on down to Topshop now! This superb . . . um . . . I'm not quite sure 'jumpsuit' covers its full glory . . can be yours for fifty of your British sterling.

Regular readers will know it's not often that I write posts of the 'buy this here!' nature, but this one was too good to miss.

Ugh! Topshop have done it again. I wonder who will buy this, and how they would wear it.

I would rather look like Amy if I have to look like a crack-head! But I would definitly wear the stripey thing if I were a clown.

hayley - for once, I don't know. I think this would be too ugly even for the most determined of Hoxton hipsters.

sister wolf - I think Topshop have exhausted all the Amy-style clothing, so evidently they're moving onto something fresh and new..... the all-purpose convict garb.

luxe - you're quite right! go-faster 'flame' stripes up the legs are JUST what it needs... the finishing touch.

Hahahaha...

Very Agyness Deyn, non?

Charponnaise said...

Only if she wore it with some Clarks mens shoes, her granddad's rotting old blazer, a Roland Rat t-shirt and, in a twist of fiendish originality, a bowler hat.

I am in NO way a fan of over-hyped Agyness. But when I saw the piece I thought of her... she has been wearing that kind of ugly clown suit before.. so if it looks bad on a tall person imagine what it would look like on a dwarf, ie me. =D

I think I should buy it as a sociological experiment. See how far I can push the boundaries of bad taste before people will kill me. But knowing the British and how polite they are.. I could probably get away with this..;)
