Shirt or T-shirt? : Luxury brand mocked for Rs 87,000 hybrid garment
From the back it looks like any other tee, but from the front this Balenciaga topper looks like fashion gone bizarre.Updated: May 30, 2018 17:32 IST
Everything odd sells in the name of style. But what happens when oddities turn bizarre? Balenciaga, a high-end European luxury brand, is cashing in on what many have branded as a fashion faux pas: A T-shirt shirt. The new line, from its Fall 2018 collection, is basically a T-shirt with a shirt sewn on top of it.
From the back it looks like any other tee, but from the front it looks like fashion gone bizarre. Made from 100% cotton, the T-shirt shirt casual topper is available in three sizes, and comes at a hefty price of Rs 87,000.
According to the brand’s website, the wearer has the option “to wear the short sleeves shirt with front drape effect or the long sleeves shirt with back drape effect”.
Fashion lovers were clearly not impressed by the weird garment and mocked it across social media. Some even wondered if it was a joke.
