Luckily, most of them don’t make it past the runway, or if they do then not past the red carpets.
However, Y/Project‘s detachable denim line for women is proof that ridiculous designs do sometimes make it into production and go up for sale to the public.
Their Garters Straps Jeans come at a price of $505. Described as “a deconstructed style with adjustable denim straps held together by a series of silver-tone O-rings along the front and back. Buttons fasten down the front allowing for the wearer to adjust to their liking.”
They do slightly bear the resemblance of denim garters. This being a good thing is highly doubtful.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper, Y/Project’s Detachable Cut-Out Front Jeans only cost $425 for light blue or $460 for black. They’re described as “a straight-leg silhouette with slim-fitting, detachable shorts that feature high-rise cutouts along the front, held together with button tabs along the front and back.”
Basically, they’re chaps for French city slickers. They might not be as bad if they were made with zippers instead of button tabs, as then the whole would actually come together when attached. The gaps between the legs and shorts are definitely the worst part of this look.
Anyone who is seen in public, wearing either of these, totally deserves whatever mocking comes their way, and probably more considering the price they paid to look stupid.
