6 Reasons You NEED Papercut Pants This Summer

Designers from Rodarte to Alexander Wang love playing with the reveal-conceal of strategically placed slits, slashes, and laser cuts. And, lord knows we're not above taking a razor to our own black skinnies, DIY-style. Still, when we stumbled across the Acne pants shown here, we couldn't help but cock a brow.

Makes a pretty cool outfit if you want people to think you were shipwrecked while attending an "All-White" party on Terence Koh's yacht, we guess.
Still, in the spirit of open-mindedness, we're determined to make the best of this. Click on for the six reasons you might really, truly need a slashed-to-ribbons outfit. If you're not totally convinced, your mending fee is on us.
