An unconventionally deconstructed sweater is fashion house Maison Margiela's latest contribution to the scene. The extravagant piece is the bare minimum as it presents a V-neck skeleton of a secondary layer. The offering for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 boasts 100% wool materials and it retails for the baffling sum of $940 USD.

At this point, the bold design of the deconstructed sweater and its price tag should come as no surprise. Earlier this year, the label launched another skeleton-based silhouette -- a luxurious cut-out shirt that was sold for $1,095 USD.

It really is an enigma of what Maison Margiela attempts to convey with these skimpy, highly minimalist and undoubtedly experimental designs. However, one thing is certain and that is that the deconstructed sweater is surely generating some curiosity.
