A photo snapped in Hong Kong of a young woman rocking a wire “skirt” that exposes her white undies to passersby has been the subject of hot discussion online among netizens who’ve dubbed the contraption “The Emperor’s New Skirt“.
The woman in the photo is seen wearing a regular (that is to say, existent) top while carrying two large bags, as though she’d just gone shopping. By contrast, her lantern-like bottom, constructed with wires but no fabric, looks like it was pulled out of a seamstress’s shop half-finished.
One netizen commented that the woman was “on the top” of fashion, while others suspected that it was just a ploy to get attention.
Either way, “The Emperor’s New Skirt” may be the next fashion trend coming to a city near you. Keep your eyes peeled, because it’s kind of easy to miss.
