The Alanis Morisette Nude Suit Revisited

In an earlier post I talked about the way in which the Canadian singer Alanis Morisette attempted to challenge our views on the naked body by dressing in a nude suit on television.

If you’ve seen photos of this, you’ll know that her suit wasn’t exactly haute couture. It was of the kind on sale in costume party shops.

I’ve now discovered a German artist who has produced a range of clothing worthy of Alanis. It’s very elegant and sophisticated. It’s haute couture. Have a look here.

Do you think one would get arrested for wearing it in, say, London or San Fransisco? Anyone willing to find out?

And could somebody tell Alanis?

PS This is one of the most frequently viewed pages on this blog. If you’re into Alanis a much more interesting post about her, plus video is here.

  1. Nice gear, think it might be a bit much for picking up the kids from school though.

  2. TBH – I’ll buy anything that gets rid of love handles and celullite.

    I might see if they do a trouser suit for the beach….

    Joking aside – why would you want to dress as though you were naked? Other than to get column inches in the tabloids (ie get noticed)

    Should you get arrested for wearing it? Absolutely not.

    Well, perhaps the Style Stasi might arrest you for crimes against fashion 🙂

  3. In San Francisco, arrested? Hell no!

    Not so sure about London tohugh, wouldn’t put any money on it, you Britisch can be a bit weird about these things 😉

    Looks rather classy actually, but besides wearing it ‘just for fun’, I don’t really see the point, but hey, anything goes in the name of fashion and more power to them! 😉

  4. It’s…. different to say the least. 🙂 Personally my feeling is that if you want to look as if you are naked, just get naked. There is a freedom in that.

    From a fashion standpoint…I’m not even sure that couture range is flattering but I agree with you, Philip in that it is elegant.
