Skirt of Death

This skirt by Kevork Kilesjian would look great with a massive viking helmet, don’t you think?

At $1,495, the price is just right, and the designer’s name suggests he may be amenable to killing you with a plastic bag.   Maybe he could even do this before you suffered the indignity of wearing the skirt!

Shopbop,   of course.

    Wow. This is bad. Really bad. Like a 5th grader was given a table full of scraps and told to “make something.”

    I notice that the model was so embarrassed the only possible way she was going to be photographed wearing this monstrosity was if her identity were kept a secret.

    Good plan.

    That skirt is recycled from an old saddle and the horses’ mane. Why it’s 1K baffles me.

  5. Heidi says:

    WTF is wrong with people? This is just insane!

  6. sharnek says:

    I’m going to admit that I really like the skirt…..there I’ve said it.

  7. Heidi says:

    Maybe it would be okay if the skirt were knee-length, but that fringe hanging over the hem? No, no, a thousand times no!

    Anything looks good with a massive Viking helmet!

  9. Sandra B says:

    I like this skirt. I would look like a freak wearing it though because I wouldn’t stop stroking the fringe.

  10. Cristine says:

    I’d think that the fringe would drive you nuts-feeling ticklish or creepy crawly.

  11. Good grief do you think her bush needs tending!

    As we say in Texas — Roadkill, $1495 roadkill at that….

    Love ya Sister, Muffy

    theres a good red and blue painting at the bottom of this post: you might like the whole thing though.

    that skirt is a reinterpretation of the landing strip. themanrepeller might be interested in doing a post on it.

    Whoa- what is going on with me! I usually completely agree with you..but.. I kind of like this..

    of course, that price could pay a month’s rent plus utilities AND cable…

    It looks like she popped the snaps on her silk-lined lambskin onesie to let her sleek, flat-ironed ladygarden drape loosely across her thighs.

  16. Sister Wolf says:

    Andra and littlebadwolf – Thank you for making me laugh this morning!

    Sharnek – OK, just make sure you wear the Viking Helmet.

    Wendy – With a few exception, you’re absolutely right.

    Cristine – god, I gt tickly just thinking about it.

    Make do – Hahahahahahha

    ali – Thanks, what a great link! and you’re right about thelanding strip. Eeow.

    liz – You can wear it on a date with Sharnek!

    Jlynn – Hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahaa! Disgusting!

  17. Cricket9 says:

    Jlynn, I had exactly the same association happening in my head…aargh!

  18. Tallulah Eulallie says:

    I know exactly what my father would say: “That skirt is so short, I can see the fringe on her benefits!”

    These are my favorite posts!
    I found the perfect accessory for this skirt as I was flipping through my November issue of Elle magazine in an article titled “Elle Shops: Lingerie Dressing”, subtitled “Frills and Thrills”; and goddammit if there wasn’t a pair of diamond-embellished gold lashes by Kre-At Beauty for $1, 350. Available by special order at Barney’s New York. I googled the lashes so you can see them for yourself in case you don’t have the Elle.

    Check out the rest of that blog. There’s some great, expensive shit.

  20. It would have made a killer Halloween costume with a sword and shield, and yes, a big ol’ horned Viking helmut. Pity about the price.
