A scarf that makes the wearer resemble a giant sock is arguably one of the weirdest - and most overpriced - statements this year.

It will set you back £210 (NZ$412) - but the designer behind the chunky armless tube, Dukyana, calls it a fashion statement.

Online commentators haven't been so kind.

"This is a knitted straitjacket... for the winter," one person said.

Another noted it "makes women look like a giant sock".

The item is supposedly designed for long walks, and Dukyana promises it sits tight on the body and won't lose shape.

Photos show the model striking a pose inside the brown tube, and also demonstrating how it can be pulled over the head, leaving only the feet showing.

It's not the designers' only statement piece.

Their website also boasts models wearing huge fluffy sweaters, and a three-piece hot pink woollen set.
