Male models: I always feel sorry for them. They look perpertually sad, sullen and starving. I probably would be too if I had to step out of my house looking like the (un)love(d)-child of a fire hydrant and a yellow caution tape.
I can honestly say I've never seen anyone--off the catwalk--wearing these outfits. I'm all for encouraging creativity but some things should never see the light of day or night. Fashion designers must have a mean streak about them to make these (mostly) good men do something so horrific as to model their designs.
For the world to see!
Forever immortalized on film!
That and they've run out of ideas.
Is there anyone that you know who would be caught dead wearing this?
Anyone at all? Outside of a cos-play party or in a moment of drunken stupidity?
I rest my case.
No one wants to wear such... extreme (for lack of a more descriptive word) attire.
You know what's sadder than the male models?
Those people who--hopefully--get paid to watch models strut their ludicrously long legs down the catwalk in various disturbing might-have-(once upon a generation or so ago)-been clothing. They have all manners of perplexed looks on their faces. Ya know, those "WTF? is wearing him?" faces. "Is that a sheep suffocating his common sense or have I self-hypnotized to Wonderland" looks. And then there's the "OMG! I think that's my dog wrapped around his gorgeously proportioned waist" horror faces.
The funny ones are those with their fist under their chins in that "thinking intensely" pose. What are they thinking about? How their time would be better spent doing something actually meaningful? Like saving the planet? Or wondering what Lindsey Lohan would be arrested for next? Or how Michelangelo "Thinker" did it better?
As a humanitarian (meaning I don't eat humans; I train them), I cannot abide another one of brethren suffering. Look at all these pictures and answer me this: Do you see a single face that indicates, remotely, that the guy is enjoying himself (even the guy with the outspread wings)? That he's doing this for more than just to be able to pay his rent and feed himself?
(On a side note: think I might try my hand at fashion design. It looks...interesting. I would have fun thinking of crazy outfits that would forever traumatize my models).
I think people should stop indulging these crazy whims. What is the point of those huge mittens? To cushion your fall when you trip over those ridiculous boots because you can't see where you're going since your eyes are covered by wool from a sheep's behind?
And don't tell me it's "Art!" I've seen blank canvases that make more sense and dots with more emphatic messages.
Clothes are meant to be worn and it's your job to make them. If you can't do that, well... I should be running out to buy these, not holding in vomit tainted laughter because I'm at a public location and others might think I'm unhinged. (I'm not)!
It's not "edgy," "cool," or "different." It's ludicrous, makes no sense and a waste of resources. It sends the message that the only time you have to have good designs is when you're starting out. After you make it, you try to "out-gaga" each other.
Thanks for the laugh, though.
