Juicy Couture is not known for being understated. So it isn't surprising to see that their new Fifth Avenue flagship store is, for some reason, filled with mannequins wearing men's kilts. According to a poster on forum X Marks the Scot, the company isn't actually selling kilts, but is instead "promoting them as an 'alternative to pants' by dressing their mannequins in them." But another commenter on the same thread criticizes Juicy's displays, writing "The only problem I have is that they are not worn properly by the mannequins. Some [kilts] are backwards, sideways, and any other way they decided to place them." Shocking, we know.
