Blanket bombing

Pop the question

Did you just roll out of bed? Are you going for that look or did you not have any fresh clothes left?

Where have you been holed up? This blanket that I have draped is the latest fashion trend from the pavements of Florence to the snow drifts of New York. These are scarves on steroids baby!

Is that so? Fine, I will brave tomorrow's snow in my snuggly blanket which has rocket ships and puppies on it.

Hello! This trend is not for the homeless bums pushing shopping carts and a beard which desperately needs a trim. These are Louis Vuitton and Kenzo blankets that are selling like hot cakes for more than $1, 200. You can't just throw your college dorm-room blanket on and pretend to be avant-garde.

How did the pedestrian blanket even come to be such a hot item?

It all started when the fops started peacocking around with Vuitton's unbelievably thick, logo-branded scarves. Kenzo also fanned the fire by presenting these wooly mammoths at its 2013 fall menswear show as the giveaways on everyone's seats. Soon, they made their way to the New York Fashion week too.

Phew! Thank god winter's nearly over. I'm happy to have missed this trend.

That's the beauty of it, in summer you can use it as a picnic blanket!. Style pundits are predicting that this summer will see a lot of gingham blankets. So you better get ready for some blanket bombing.
