It Beats Working
Runway fashion is easy to mock… so what the hell, let’s give it a go.
Best Week Ever has summed up the S/S 09 runway season with a set of 25 models forced to dress outside any normal conception of dignity. There are a few missteps, particularly the inclusion of an impeccably dressed older gentleman, but otherwise it’s a pretty good census of the most ridiculous and downright off-putting getups to grace this year’s runways.
When a porno stache is the least off putting thing about your outfit, you’re in trouble, but not as much trouble as the people pushing the consumptive look. Somehow, we don’t see the crotch purse hitting it big this year.
There’s a fine line between high fashion and just wrapping someone in foam tubing…but at least he could see where he was going.
