    but the overall presentation is humorous and playful

    Well they're not taking the piss out of the clothes, but the images are funn. That grey boiler suit and heels in the park - that's done with a sense of fun.
     
  7. I seem to be on Neil Barrett's Instagram feed. Strong looks aplenty there, wearing £200 t-shirts.

    It's done with a sense of fun... but I'm not allowed to find it fun?

    you think it would work better if they looked zany and mugged like Jim Carrey?

    This is really not very odd. Baggy trousers and an oversized jumper. Very studenty in a nineties revival way.

    i think with catwalk shows designers go over the top to make a "statement" and create a feel, and then the designs get slightly pared down for the ready-to-wear market.

    look at that jumper man. just look at it. it's totally fucking ridiculous, I agree. but it's supposed to be ridiculous. You're laughing with them, not at them.

    Ok.




    Good luck with that.

    There's a difference between mockery and wit.

    I'm just laughing. I never said anything about with or at.

    There's also a difference between my arse and my elbow. What of it?

    No.


    No I don't. I think it's perfect as it is. I thought I'd made that abundantly clear, in fact.

    Is that fashion? It looks like something done for a journalistic piece...

    It's one of those new hipster eateries where you eat your breakfast off someone. Like a low end 'nyotaimori'.
    Cockwaffle, anyone?

    I don't know. Because it's more enjoyable for them to pretend that those pieces are being suggested for the high street? It makes the joke work better?

    As if most 'fashion' isn't done for journalistic pieces.

    Well yes, and some of those statement pieces make others laugh. The one I quoted for example...it was the long shirt sleeves that tickled me. Their annoying impracticalness made me laugh. Also the puffer jacket I posted. I just imagine trying to get through doorways on that or on the train. :D
