The internet has been more than a little bit taken aback by a Jeremy Scott’s reveal of a dry-cleaner-bag dress as part of his latest fashion line up. The dress (pictured above) costs $700 or around £590 which is a number that’s way higher than it has any right to be. And yet, it’s not even come close to peak-crazy yet. In fact we’d like to direct your attention to her gym sock purse. D’you see it? D’you see that thing in her right hand? Look at it. Let it sink in.
It’s not clear if the gym sock purse is part of the $700 price tag but damn, would it make a difference? Would this seem any less bizarre if it was? The designer responsible has a reputation for making bizarre and provocative designs (‘provocative’ in this case meaning ‘he’s clearly bit of an asshole’) but we can’t help but feel like this is him taking it to breaking point.
The dry cleaner bag dress is part of Jeremy Scott’s latest Cardboard Couture line that pays tribute to the literal garbage we take for granted. Wait a minute… I’ve heard of that before. Where have I heard of that before?
So that's where!
Anyway. In summary, a $700 bag that looks like this.
