Grass, but make it fashion.
Now, we weren’t in the room when Gucci heads decided to launch an ‘eco-washed’ line featuring jeans and dungarees that appear to be grass-stained.
But we do wonder for why they decided to flog these numbers that look like you’ve spent too long in the park.
The luxury retailer is selling distressed denim with faded brown and green splodges around the knees and ankles.
And in typical Gucci fashion, the items will set you back hundreds of pounds.
While the eco-washed organic denim overalls are $1,400 (£1,088) a pair of eco-washed trousers will set you back $680 (£528).
Though we make fun of these pieces, Gucci does state that the jeans and dungarees are sustainable.
The materials are leftovers that are upcycled into new items under the Gucci Up sustainable programme.
On its website, it states: ‘Channeling the Fall Winter 2020 Men’s collection’s grunge vibe, this denim overall is crafted from organic cotton and specifically treated for a stained-like, distressed effect.
‘Gucci explores new takes on the cult fabric, reinterpreting it with different designs and washing techniques that blur the line between vintage and contemporary.’
And good news, you can pair the stained-effect numbers with a ripped jumper that screams granddad vibes.
The fashion house states: ‘Crafted from brown rib-knit wool, the oversize crewneck jumper has a distressed, underground look, emphasized by intentional tears in the fabric.
‘For the Fall Winter 2020 fashion show, Gucci draws inspiration from the ‘80s and ‘90s grunge subculture and reimagines it through its lens.’
To each their own, eh?
