“I’ve often thought that there should be beauty contests for the insides of bodies…”

posted by on June 24 at 13:09 PM

The Spring ‘08 men’s fashion shows are happening right now in Milan.

Prada is the line that always goes its own way, for better or worse, last season’s odd and fetishy tutus definitely being on the side of worse. Provocative and much more believable are these rubber garments shown this week.
They’re quite spare and beautiful. I think the feel of that thick rubber would would be lovely and they would look just right in Seattle’s pearlescent light, if you happen to be a wealthy, good-looking gay millionaire with an interest in fashion.

But more than anything else, they remind me of this..

The big take home message from Milan this year (a gritty industrial city with a great mall I've visited a few times) is "Obama style" is in for men.

Not sure it will translate to Seattle, though.

What, no mention of Vivienne Westwood's Bear Model?

I'm disappointed.

Hmm, rubber? Doesn't breathe too well.

Oh man, I can only imagine how much body moisture is going to pool up inside those pure, non-breathable latex rubber jackets; like putting on a giant sweat-condom.

Yeah, just what you want to be wearing over your $400 Brandolini dress shirt...

that jacket looks like it's made of kelp.

Those jackets really, really suck.

I like the look, but, as others have pointed out, it would probably get kind of gross underneath that layer of rubber.

Dead Ringers is scary.

Posted by Jeremy | June 24, 2008 1:54 PM

I would rather wear the tutu.

Those with latex allergies will be out of luck.

AND Dead Ringers was a very very very creepy but excellent movie.

Translucent rubber jackets are a really, really stupid idea.

"Dead Ringers" was a deeply creepy, but also very erotic movie. Jeremy Irons was hot. It gave me nightmares, but in a good way.

I wanted to write a really cool comment about how Slog is going downhill, what the h*ll your qualifications are, that you should k*ll yourself to spare us further pain etc. etc. and then finish by pointing out the terrible mistake you made in your post and thus revealing that I'm actually a demented nitpicker with no life at all but I was to afraid that nobody here would understand my brilliant sarcasm and I'd be ignored in perpetuity (I love spellcheck, but hate punctuation;)

Love your posts

I dig the translucent jacket idea. Do not dig the portable-sauna idea. But they do look cool.

I'd shovel Irons' shit in my mouth for $5.

Weird, I was just reading that "Dead Ringers" quote yesterday.
