IS EEK THE NEW CHIC?
Oh dear. It seems the inmates are running the asylum again. Or is it just German designer Patrick Mohr up to his old tricks?
Known for his runway antics (See below and you’ll see why this word is appropo: think a be-wigged and fake bucktoothed look, a face seemingly covered in paste, and an homage to whiskers.) Mr. Mohr kept things a little tamer this year at Berlin’s Fashion Week – but exactly what message is one intending to send by gluing his models mouths shut and plastering out their eyebrows?!
The aforementioned whiskers in a show entitled “Are We Shaved.” Apparently not. Eek! or Chic?
A rather clownish ‘Planet of the Apes’ look. Eek! or Chic?
Call me crazy but, it’s a little tough to focus on the fashions when the model’s ‘shriek’ factor becomes the show.
