A Side of Bacon

The latest fashion accessory - not suitable for vegetarians













Ever since Lady Gaga rocked that meat dress with such aplomb, our own wardrobes have felt, well, a bit anaemic. But no more, as now we could be the proud owners of this cutting-edge bacon scarf.

This meaty incarnation, designed by Swiss artist Natalie Luder, is 100% silk, and yours for just shy of £120. And, dare we say it, it's surprisingly chic. Bacon – the new black?
