Blanket with over-sized sleeves on sale

Updated on : Sunday, December 13, 2009

LONDON: Slanket is the newest apparel that has become a craze this season.

The dress, which seems to be a cross between a hospital gown and a blanket, can be worn like an apron.

Lakeland, the kitchen and homewares store in America had come up with the item in September last year.

Since then, the dress that covers the wearer from neck to feet, has sold nearly a quarter of a million.

Even chat show hosts Jay Leno and Oprah Winfrey have worn it on their shows.

Also, Bruce Willis donned it on the David Letterman show.

“There is something very wrong about someone wearing a slanket. They are definitely not high fashion, but they’ve been an amazing phenomenon,” the Telegraph quoted Tom Dunmore of Stuff magazine, as saying.

Lakeland is offering it for 29.99 pounds, while Firebox, an online gadget retailer, is selling them for 25 pounds.
