2017 is the year when fashion is out to make a statement. Or if you read in another way, it is the year where designers ran out of practical ideas and hence, it results in stuff like fake mud-coated jeans, clear knee jeans, and now, an entirely transparent pair of jeans. Yup. Transparent jeans is a thing now and the outfit that made it a reality (not that it was in existence in fantasy) is none other than Top Shop. Who knows? Perhaps transparent knee was so questionable that it ended being a hit and if so, how do you outdo yourself? Well, going all-out transparent, of course!
Seriously, Topshop Moto Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans is real and we are not sure if Topshop stocked little of this outrageously weird apparel or it was in demand, because this 100 bucks near-invisible ’denim’ is currently out-of-stock. Or was it rainy season already? And yes, I do think it looks like the raincoat pants, except that it is transparent and being transparent means, what you wear under now do makes a difference. Perhaps, it is your opportunity to show off your expensive and/or cute undies. That said, it is definitely not a garment for those who love going commando, or for those who have the ‘habit’ of forgetting to wear underwear.
The ridiculousness that comes with a see-through jeans aside, this un-worldly jeans, if you can even call it one, begs a ton of questions. Questions like breathability and also, as we all know, plastic tends to stick to moist surfaces like our skin and so, wouldn’t it be a pain to put on and take out Moto Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans. Damn. We are like a bunch of small kids with endless questions about this world, but the only questions with have is about this pair of ‘jeans’.
P.S. Perhaps, this concept already existed since fairytale? Hint: Emperor’s New Clothes.
