The fashion world keeps on giving us surprises and there have been many moments when we have laughed out loud on the designs or products created by some really big names of the industry. If you remember, some time back, a brand released denim jeans and overalls with fake grass stains, another brand came up with chair purses in which literally nothing could be kept and how can we forget about the necklaces which were made up of phone cords.
There are many other instances that made us wonder as to who designed them and for what purpose but now an Indian designer has become the butt of jokes by releasing an outfit which resembles the dress of Indian auto drivers.
One of the most famous Indian designers, Sabyasachi Mukherjee did a collaboration with the clothing brand H&M and recently released their new collection. While the whole collection was sold out within few minutes, many were left shocked and upset after seeing the huge prices of dresses. However, what caught attention of some netizens was a brown shirt priced at Rs. 2,999 and trousers for Rs. 3,499 and believe us if you will wear it, you will look pretty similar to auto wale bhaiya.
Soon, people started making memes and jokes in this regard and some even went on to say that auto driver’s dress looks better than the designer one. Here are some of the selected reactions:
