Surely they’re just messing with us now…
Another year, another set of fashion weeks (referred to as Fashion Month when grouped) featuring a bunch of new “trends” so batsh*t crazy we’re almost convinced the fah-shun crowd have given up completely and are now are just trolling us all.
Here are 7 times Fashion Month 2015 has proved it’s officially out of touch with the real world (and most probably on crack).
1. Hobbit feet.
Brace yourselves, guys – because if Gucci has their way, we’ll be all be taking our sartorial cues from Bilbo Baggins and co.
Fur-covered shoes were everywhere at New York Fashion Week. But it was Gucci’s offering at Milan Fashion Week that took things to a new level. A level that only Chewbacca would be comfortable with.
Must these shoes be combed and shampooed? Will small dogs be attracted to your feet at all times? Can’t. Even. Deal.
2. Kanye’s flesh-toned body stockings.
Think of the least sexy thing you’ve ever seen and times that by 49,275. Voila – you have Kanye West’s Adidas Originals collection of figure-hugging, beige body stockings.
But Kanye’s awful NYFW debut doesn’t deserve your sympathy – his sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner, does. The 17-year-old made her NYFW debut at the show in an outfit we can only describe as a giant stocking.
3. Going naked.
Thought the whole point of Fashion Month was to showcase clothes? Oh you. US label MTCostello sent this poor guy down the runway in nothing but a golden blanket and some jewellery for his man-parts. At least pretend it’s about the clothes, guys!
