Can anyone explain why the Thom Browne models, sporting Scottish Highland garb, have French flags painted on their faces?
@The Real Mike in Asheville: They don’t. If anything, those are Yugoslavian flags. The French flag has vertical blue, white, and red.
Wouldn’t clothes look better if the models looked like they were the least bit happy to be wearing them, by smiling? Although, after seeing these designs, I guess I can understand why they have those “looks” on their faces.
@ncman: No, it’s not a pageant.
hideously ugly clothes, made for people with too much money, worn by models who would look angelic in anything. why people don’t burst out laughing at every model on the runway is beyond me.
@adam madam: Simply put, it’s because it’s an art show displaying colors, patterns, textiles, and form displayed in a method a designer chooses to express himself while still holding to the basic principles of balance with cohesiveness many artists and writers struggle with in every art piece they create. Chances are no one else on the planet will wear these particular clothes – so they are not “made for” anyone… they are made to be shown.
Your argument (pithy as it was) would be better suited for a ready-to-wear fashion show.
@ncman: Would you be happy wearing that crap?!? I think there was only one jacket that I would have been tempted to try on.
@dawster: thanks, sincerely, for schooling me. eloquently, too.
that still doesn’t explain why the clothes shown here are consistently, hideously ugly.
hat-tip for the pithiness, though.
Next year, they might as well resurrect the polyester “leisure suits” from the 1970′s. They couldn’t be any uglier than these absurd collections, and at least had plenty of pockets.
