The Week contest: Tattered fashion

This week's question: Balenciaga is selling "full destroyed" high-top sneakers — complete with scuffs, graffiti, and artfully placed tears — for $1,850 a pair. If the Paris fashion house were to launch an entirely new line of pricey, tattered clothing, what should it be called?
