According to the Daily Mail, the British trendy brand Nu sells a sleeveless balloon shirt dress in black, which is priced at more than US$600, drawing much attention from social media users comparing it to a garbage bag.
根據Nu官網，「黑色無袖氣球裙」每件售價242.50英鎊 (約新台幣9,244元)，然而，此標價為1月五折特惠價，目前官網顯示已回到原售價，每件485英鎊 (約新台幣18,527元)。
According to Nu’s website, the “black Jacquard Sleeveless Balloon Shirt Dress” was priced at £242.50 (NT$9,244) per piece; however, this price is a 50% discount in January. The website now shows that the price has returned to the original price of £485 (NT$18,527).
Its website wrote that the 100 percent polyester garment features asymmetric front pockets-front and button closure-balloon form.
Nu has stores in Chelsea and Marylebone, high-end residential areas in London, mainly targeting high-end customers.
Thus, fans were baffled by the design from the clothes giant.
In response to the weird design, many social media users said they didn’t understand the design concept.
One wrote: “Tell me that’s not a bin bag,” while another said “Pretty sure I’ve got a roll of them under the kitchen sink. Jackpot.’
Meanwhile, others said that they resembled cheap, homemade Halloween costumes.
