....when fashion houses go bananas.
I saw this ad when flipping through the massive (for them) September issue of GQ. What?! This is an ad for Bottega Veneta, and although the bag and suit are very cool, WTH is up with the Colonel Sanders string tie, chunk-tacular police officer shoes, and go-go-gadget white socks?
Well, that's not to mention this pose, which was last witnessed on that nymph during an especially confusing scene in 300.
A few pages in, my style compass was re-centered.
Thanks, Hugo Boss. This is how you show a suit and neat bag. Plus, there's mad specs appeal happening here. Whew.
I get that fashion is not always supposed to be mass-market and wearable, but that first picture is just too much. You have to draw the line somewhere. I'd say Kentucky Fried Fashion is far enough.
