Fashion Bin: Laced-Up-Leather
Do I need to say anything at all about this grotesque phenomenon? Oh, go on then...see if you can guess the designer of this Laced-Up-Leather (LUL) jacket. And it's not Roberto Cavalli, though the sleazy, Euro Trash styling is right up his alley. Actually it's Michael Kors, purveyor of chic, understated fashion and he's not the only one with a bit of a LUL in his spring collection. That's Not My Age spotted both a jacket and a skinny leather pant at Rag & Bone in New York (can someone please tell me what has happened to that label?) and a pair of shorts for only $1095 at Rodarte for Opening Ceremony. Wild West Hooker-chic anyone?
If you're wondering who in their right mind would wear this tat, how about Cher circa 1986? Woody from Toy Story? Wagner might be in need of a new stage outfit now that the X Factor Live tour has kicked off? Frankly, I'd rather spend an evening at La Perle with John Galliano than wear this stuff, so there's only one place for it...
