lets cleanse our palates with denimAs we struggle with a rising national nausea that’s about to hit its apex, let’s calm our acid reflux with some very special denim.

Above, a jacket by Y’s, a line by Yohji Yamamoto. At only $699, it’s a good price for this brand.  Who can finish this sentence:

Next is an offering from the fabulously popular and overpriced DSQUARED2.

Layers of shredded denim lend a patched and worn look to these signature DSQUARED2 Cool Girl cropped jeans. 5-pocket styling. Button fly.

Oh, don’t be so modest, Shopbop! Tell us about the strategic distressing and the bleach stains! Believe me, these jeans will scream Cool Girl no matter what a lame-ass you really are. Worth every penny.

Finally, a nice poke in the eye at a friendly price point. Behold the Turn Up Culottes by EDIT.

Welp, they are nothing if not avant-garde, where avant-garde means hideous. I love the pleats, which ensure a bloated look around the middle. The rear view is just as flattering.

At only $275, the culottes are a great deal, using the standard formula e (eyesore) x p (price) ÷ sv (shock-value) + u (unwearability) x ? + s (sadness)2 .

    All dumb.
    Sadly, Junya Watanabe’s takes on Levi’s have seemed kind of desperate lately. There are some I wouldn’t even wear.

    Wait! Those black denim pants that accompany the Y’s jacket with the too-long sleeves need a post of their own. Vile. And likely $1200.

    These leave me perplexed. I’m also wondering why I’m not a fashion designer? All this time I tricked myself into thinking I didn’t have the talent. Robbed!

    … you will never run out of a place to rub your nose when you have a cold.

    Those sleeves are great because you can wipe your nose for weeks without having to buy a box of Kleenex.

    Isn’t the top design a denim straight jacket??

  7. Dj says:

    Clearly the Yamamoto design is a denim straight jacket.

    God almighty, I don’t know how you do it but you always manage to outdo your last hideous denim post. Given the high standard of outright eye assault you maintain, that takes some talent.

    Sleeves like this are great because the police can’t see I’m holding swords.

    Those culottes!!

    Sleeves like this are great for self flagellation. One should be expecting punishment when wearing something so ludicrous. Might as well just do it yourself.

    Also, would be good for swishing away flies, if you are on your camel riding across the desert.

    Also also, would be an ideal bondage straight jacket.

    One would only wear them in the first place if they had hit rock bottom and the sleeves provide instantaneous flight-mode to escape from self-induced misery. Great for when your therapist is on summer vacation in Belarus.
