Ridiculous Haute Couture Smartphone Ankle Holders

July 12, 2018


These are the ridiculous smartphone ankle holders spotted at a recent Maison Margiela fashion show with a theme that was supposed to explore futurism and technology (you did not nail it). The rest of their outfits way aside, the phones look perfect for filming your dog or your own underwear, but otherwise completely impractical. They're like one of those gun ankle holsters, except the only thing you'll be shooting is a text to your rich parents begging them to deposit more money in your account. You know, I used to think high fashion was so ridiculous until my girlfriend made me watch The Devil Wears Prada. Now I just want to be part of it.

Keep going for a couple closeups in case you're not sure just how uncomfortably the holder attaches to the leg.




Thanks to v, who agrees you might as well tape a phone to the side of your head and call yourself the next Alexander McQueen.

    Like anyone would ever buy any of that or ever wear it on the street... Designers are trying way too hard to be original, that they became totally absurd!

    Achewood already did this sorta


  • This planet needs an enema.
    Thanos...you out there, Buddy?

    Reminds me of those 1950s attempts at predicting what the world would be like in the year 2000. Totally goofy and almost always utterly wrong. At least with this "fashion" crap we won't have to wait 50 years to laugh at how asinine it is.

    I know I'm not the sharpest crayon in the tool shed but I really don't understand anything about fashion shows.

    'Haute Couture" translated from German actually means "Fetal Alcohol Syndrome", referring to the fact that you'd have to have severely stunted brain development to not find the whole thing ridiculous.

  • Totally true. Also means "High Sewing" in French.... meaning these designer were high AF when they were making this shit.

    When you on your back and bae is going at you like a jackhammer on full auto, but you still need to check your instagram likes.

  • Now I can't stop wondering what a jackhammer on semi-auto would look like.

    Champing at the bit, but boyz II men is playing and you don't wanna ruin the mood.

  • Wooder

    This is proof that there is alien life on this planet! and they still struggle with where to put their phones.

    Somewhere in all that material there is not a pocket. In the future there are no pockets...then I need to get a jock strap with a pocket.

    Is...that black and yellow coat on sideways? Is that supposed to be the fashion, or did the model just not understand how hoods work?

  • Mark

    It looks like it.

    i'll take one of these to strap to the top of my thigh for when i'm sitting on the toilet. what can i say, i appreciate high fashion.

  • Mark

    Don't you mean "thigh fashion"?

    I'll see myself out.
