How Bizarre

This is not an April Fool's joke.  It was in the NY Times last October.  It's proof that some people have more dollars than sense.

Case in point:

If you were to think of the qualities you'd expect to find in the world's most expensive socks, what would they be?  Strength?  Fit?  Feel on your feet?  Quality?  Warmth?  Practicality? Wearability?

How about a $500 pair of crocheted socks, full of holes, that can't be washed?

If you want to see a short 2-minute video about New Yorker's opinion of these socks, click here.  I couldn't agree more with their opinions. 

Maybe Rodarte did this as a way of getting publicity.  If so, then the socks are a success even if they don't sell a single pair.

The photos by Rodarte seem to be of abused anorexic girls forced to wear very bizarre garments. As for the socks? They did get publicity.

Is it an April fools thing?

Thanks for keeping us all posted on the latest trends.
