The Great and God Awful Trends of New York Fashion Week: "Is everyone secretly way sluttier than we thought?"

J. Mendel, Brandon Sun, Sophie Theallet, Michael Kors, Jeremy Laing, Philosophy, Milly, Lacoste

"Of all the trends we saw for next year,

the “sheer fabric/no bra/I actually paid money for this shirt so you can see my titties trend” is by far our #1 favorite. This isn’t necessarily a new thing, nearly every season someone tries to pull off this look and normally it goes unnoticed. But the number of labels that decided to go this route for spring is a little overwhelming. In fact, I didn’t even include all of them in our post because we kept getting everyone’s shows mixed up and got sick and tired of having to re-make our stupid little collage every time we found someone else made exactly the same barely-there item. Boobs are great and all, but we can’t help but be a little concerned about this—like, why is everyone suddenly making items that leave nothing to the imagination? Is everyone secretly way sluttier than we thought? Are we so wasteful as a society that we’re now OK with spending tons of money on clothing that technically isn’t really clothing? Is global warming worsening at such a rapid rate that by next season we won’t even be able to survive unless our asses are hanging out? Are we about to die? ARE WE DYING IN 2014?!"

If the models look starved and the clothes look ugly, it's high fashion.

Gee, who would guess self-hating artistes would make their life's work insulting others.

I'm guessing the arthur is too young to remember the see-thru blouse and topless fashion days of the late 60s/early70s.

How underwhelming. "Yes, you are weird and will shock the prudes. Next."

Most of the world is far too rough for that kind of fashion. There are probably only a few thousand people world-wide who are interested in dressing like that. The uniform of a kept woman, or that you aspire and are advertising to become one: a brood mare in a gilded stable.

It's like looking at and owning Bugatti's and Ferrari's, and about as satisfying. Escorting your trophy companion dressed like that, is just as troublesome as gallivanting about in your super car.

The black trannie in the middle: doesn't he play for the Knicks? Isn't his dad palling around with Kim Jung Un?
