British Fashion Council member David Gandy has vowed to make London the 'menswear capital of the world.'

Bizarre hats made out of wooden planks, models with 'blacked out' faces, and some ankle swinging sportswear were among some of the truly outlandish designs which kicked off Men's fashion week today. [snip copyrighted images]

Given tax rate in France, this might work.

From the looks of the audience, the “art” was not a hit.

Except for the old guy in the middle setting off my Gadar, He really liked the mini skirt boy.

Life imitates art (sort of).

Those splintery planks are a lawsuit waiting to happen. Can you imagine walking down the streets of NY, or hopping on the subway, wearing one of those?

And to think I thought the fashion design industry only hated women.

The emporer has clothes! Thanks for this. I needed a laugh. This is as funny as modern art.

Will someone please send them some antistatic dryer sheets. And then some matches to burn the trash on their faces.

I actually went to high school with three of the guys from Devo, Bob and Mark Mothersbaugh plus their kid brother Jim. Weird family, especially for a small semi-rural suburban area, but definitely original. I still laugh when I think about some of the s*** Jim pulled and I always admired the music they did for “Rugrats”. The “fashions” shown here here are just plain stupid.

I got a kick out of their stuff, back in the day. I thought they had a great sense of humor. But then I read that they were somewhat serious about “de-evolution,” and, well, I liked them better when they were funny.

What was Democrat Congresswoman Rose Delauro doing in London?

I just HAD to look. You're RIGHT!

No knowing Ms. Delauro, I thought (hopefully) you were referring to the gorgeous lass in the red dress. Alas, no...

You give no credence to de-evolution? How else would you explain the millions who pulled the lever for ODumbo??

I looked. It’s too late for me to make an emergency appointment with my optometrist.

It was a bit of wry humor about grave-robbing oldsters. Supper’s gone, Dan...maybe you should just stand there looking.

I too thought the idea that humanity is actually regressing was silly. The last few years' events (not to mention our most recent election) have me wondering. The plastic hats and day glow overalls were over the top, but that was also the time for huge neck ties, enormous lapels, afros, gawd awful double knit, glitter, and platform shoes. Out of all that Devo is the one bizarre image out of so many I can recall with a chuckle.
