Male Prostitutes And Princesses




1. Meadham Kirchhoff Spring/Summer 2015

2. Ed Marler Spring/Summer 2015

3. Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2015

Half-naked in emperor's dress. Endorsed with glitzy crowns, silk brocade and women's lingerie, next season's man is neither transsexual nor metrosexual, neither heterosexual nor homosexual, neither asexual nor bisexual. He is try-sexual.

8. Dior Spring/Summer 2015 & Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2015

The Raf Sandior universe is a hermeneutic one. And that's ok. This (or next) year was about colour codes and multiple button fastenings. A techno Marie Antionette and a virtual porn on demand Samurai. Get it on.

A To The Scene













Steven Klein Lone Star (Dutch Magazine), 2000

Using an inflationary term, this is most probably the 'best' fashion story 'ever'. Everyone seems to still be trying 'hard', while others have already achieved 'everything'. Today is a prudish age. No one cares to dare anymore.

Miusing Escher VII



1. Miu Miu Resort 2015
2. M.C. Escher Flying Fish (No. 73), 1949

The endless staircase built of and worn as macramé on a jungle-turned-water-turned-garden silk trousers drawing and osmosis watercolour blouse. The handbag is nothing but the supporting frame.

Out Of Touch




Si Chan Fall/Winter 2012

What could have sprung from Erwin Wurm's walking sculptures, is a rubber glove inferno wrapped around a man's body. Dangling from the neck, finding especial grip in the male crotch. What makes it charming rather than disturbing is the naïve colour palette.
