10 Super Strange Fashion Collaborations That Still Have Us Confused

Designer collaborations are kind of like celebrity couples. Some, such as Versace for H&M and Missoni's Target range, have the Brangelina power of two mega-forces joining together. Others possess a certain Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner, how-did-this-not-happen-sooner-ness, like the Keds collection at Kate Spade. Then, there's the totally random, completely confusing, Mary-Kate-Olsen-dating-Olivier-Sarkozy of limited edition lines. We're still scratching our heads over the ten in the slideshow below—click through for some of the weirdest fashion match-ups to date.

Victoria Beckham x Range Rover

Whether it's fashion or auto mechanics, V Becks only works with the very best brands. This partnership was surprising and all—but not like Posh for Kia Rio surprising.

Tom Brady x Uggs

So. Many. Questions! Like, did he actually help design these? Did Gisele help? And most importantly: do he and his team mates wear fleecy slippers in the locker room?

A.P.C. x Aesop Post-Poo Drops

This one is a little more about the product itself than the brands that made it. Aesop and A.P.C. actually have a lot in common: both take a very simple, no-frills approach to design and both are beloved by fashion insiders. Neither, however, have anything to "pooing," or the smells that come with it. So it's totally befuddling that out of all the endless amount of more appealing things these two could have created together, a "deodorizer best suited for use by those who eat, drink and digest daily" seemed best.

Marchesa x NFL

It all started with a one-of-a-kind Swarovski crystal studded top Georgia Champman created for Suzanne Johnson, wife of Jet's owner Woody Johnson. Although her was "couture," a similar version was sold on the team's website last fall. Apparently the evening wear designer plans to release even more glammed up sports shirts in the future, geared toward lady fans of additonal teams.

Karl Lagerfeld x AgustaWestland

The Kaiser well-known for taking on unexpected side projects—wine bottle labels, ice cream commercials, Snoop Dogg videos—but making VIP helicopters is one of his strangest to date.
