Are Topshop alright? Because they’re selling these plastic see through jeans and I think someone should check on them
WHO ARE THESE FOR
There was once a simpler time, not too long ago, where Topshop was a normal even beloved retailer. When the weirdest thing they sold were these clear knee mom jeans, which made the internet collectively recoil.
But as the bizarre juggernaut of a year that is 2017 trundles onwards and we edge ever closer to World War Three, we’re all living each day like it might be our last and doing whatever wild shit we want. For Topshop, that means selling more bizarre shit. Today – a pair of completely clear legged jeans.
For just 100 of your American dollars – yep, a hundred fucking dollars – these jeans, which are part Rainmac part condom and 100 per cent the dream of a fashion executive who loves flashing strangers, could be yours.
In a vain attempt at an explanation the website boasts: Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans – guaranteed to get people talking. In a straight leg cut, they feature classic pockets detailing and are cropped at the ankle bone. Ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party, take the look to the extreme with a bikini and sequin jacket or dress down, layered under an oversized jumper or asymmetric hem dress.”
Is this what thinking outside the box is now? Can you wear underwear with these? If you can machine wash them, then how do you dry them? I have so many questions and the only thing I know for absolute certain is how vile, sweaty and steamy these trousers would get within, like, five minutes of putting them on.
The future is terrifying.
