Cooked Clothes: Love It or Hate It?

Designer Kean Etro has just created a unique line of "Cooked" shirts. His collection, which is called The Harvest Style, encourages folks to enhance their stained clothes instead of throwing them out. Think of his designs as tie-dye with a modern, organic, and foodie twist.

There are three different styles: Blueberry (blueberries, sugar, blueberry juice over a white shirt and baked at 330F for 40 minutes), Coffee (which is a crisp white shirt soaked in six liters of coffee for eight hours, then hung out to dry), and Salt (white shirt layered with coarse cooking salt for 40 minutes at 350F).

While I think the concept is fun — not to mention a way to keep a stained LWD or tuxedo shirt in play — I'm not sure I'm keen on the result. How about you, would you cook your clothes?

These clothes scream, "Hi! I just had a major accident in the kitchen!"

No thanks, maybe if I was experimenting in junior high and this was the only way I would look different.

sounds pretty lame to me. first of all, blueberries are way too expensive to blow on a shirt like this. second of all, has the designer considered the fact that likely the clothes will retain the fragrance of the dying process. a full-on coffee-scented shirt will reek!

Looks like cheap tie-dye... and even nice tie-dye is tacky.

If I couldn't wash out a coffee stain on a white shirt, I might try to dye it a uniform coffee color. But I'd probably use a real dye!

I like the using natural dye aspect of this project and keeping clothes to wear when you might throw them out. I don't like the "tie dye" look of the blueberry though. The salt could be cute.
