Saigon is not exactly the fashion capital of the world. Riding through the streets gives you the impression that the majority of clothing items were purchased from Target or Woolworths bargain bins, or stolen from the jockey’s change rooms in Flemington or Caulfield. There is not a lot of variety in shape, design or colour, so the modern, stylish lad or lass has to do something a little different to stand out.
This young lady riding the eternally cool white Vespa (or clone) has opted for quite an extreme approach. She’s managed to find a discarded Collingwood top (I’m sure there are many of those around), and put it to far better use than its previous owner probably did.
She’s had a little tailoring applied to it, and here’s the result.
Quite lovely, wouldn’t you say? Never mind the fact that any right-minded Australian would never be caught dead in such garb. 😉
