Okay, I’ve got to give it to people in the fashion world, they KNOW how to make a statement. Watch this video:
At 1:43, this guy, I don’t know if he’s the designer or not, but he says, “This new style is about surviving in a violent, disgusting planet.” Cue the video footage of super skinny, super hot models parading around a stage, dressed in fashionably–I don’t even know how to describe these clothes, I mean these people have got like huge–I mean HUGE glass/plastic spheres around their necks and their hands are like protruding through the holes in the sphere, locked in place with padlocks. I mean what the f*** (I’m trying to stop cussing) — I just couldn’t help but nearly fall over laughing. This guy is as French as they come. You can almost envision him sitting in some Parisian cafe chain smoking and he’s talking about surviving a violent, disgusting planet as if he has ever faced TRUE violence. I’m not mad at this guy, I just couldn’t take him seriously. But that’s not all. He goes on and says: “Fashion should express this opposition to the future. We don’t want this future…” You know, I don’t want this future either. I don’t want this violent, disgusting PRESENT either, but I serious don’t that anyone will wear these clothes and think “I am opposing the future.” Uhm, yeah…I just don’t.
