Silver-wear: an idea whose tine has come?

July 5, 2007

This dress, shown in Paris this week, is festooned with forks left over from all those size-zero models not eating anything, and it’s so practical it’s even dishwasher-safe.  But I do foresee a few problems:

  • No guy with a nice car wants you sitting on his Corinthian leather upholstery in that thing
  • It costs a fortune to have this outfit monogrammed
  • Face it, any kind of necklace is gonna look stupid
  • At those super-trendy electromagnetic parties, you’ll be flat against the wall all evening

And, as is so often the case in the world of haute couture, you just try wearing this thing through airport security!
