Grotesque muscle leggings go on sale… but will anyone (other than Lady Gaga and Heidi Klum) actually wear them
Bringing new meaning to the concept of being underdressed, a fashion firm has launched a range of leggings that emulate muscles with the skin torn off.
The white trousers, designed by Australian label Black Milk Clothing, are printed with the anatomically correct layout of the bare human muscle, with sinews, ligaments and muscle fibres printed in blood red.
It's fair to say, the gory garments will not appeal to everyone – unless they're looking for a fancy dress outfit, of course.
Autopsy chic: The 50 muscle leggings have gone on sale at Australian website Black Milk Clothing
Those who enjoy pushing sartorial boundaries will no doubt enjoy the shock value the 50 leggings will inevitably provide.
Potential customers might include
performers like Lady Gaga, who infamously wore a dress made entirely of
raw meat back in 2010, or singer Jessie J, who has made graphic printed
leggings her staple.
The label – which
specialises in unusual leggings and also sells pairs printed with jellyfish and skeleton bones – could also find an unlikely fan in
model Heidi Klum, who had an uncannily similar full body muscle suit
made for her last Halloween fancy dress party.
'This is an idea that we have been thinking about for a while,' said Australian designer James Lillis of his uncanny creation.
'A few people encouraged me to do it
but I never quite got around to it. Then I got a spare afternoon one day
and decoded to have a good go at making it work. It worked…. perhaps a
little too well!
'It's definitely our most 'meaty' design.'
Perfect customers Lady Gaga caused controversy when she wore a meat dress back in 2010, while Heidi Klum pushed boundaries of taste with her autopsy Halloween costume last October
