5 times the Vetements SS17 collection made us think, "What the heck?"
Paris couture fashion week
Vetements' spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection — which ironically showed on the first day of Paris Couture fashion week fall 2016 — was a no-holds barred rodeo that saw fashion's very own mutineer ripe in his element. Carrying on with the brand's convention-bucking methods that's given the young label a fanfare of gargantuan proportions (not unlike the mammoth jackets and hoodies Gvasalia so prefers), this season sees the designer rebelling at full steam.
Cue the maniacal cut-and-sew pieces, larger than before outers, and a Rolodex of brand collaborations. Italian menswear authority Brioni, denim maestro Levi's, and flight jacket classicist Alpha Industries to name a few. Our verdict? It's Vetements on acid. While we concede Gvasalia's ability in spinning the unthinkable into the curiously covetable, here are five times the spring 2017 collection made us think, "What in the world?"
1. In a league of superheroes
The world doesn't need another Kick-Ass movie — the first two were one too many. On the off chance Kick-Ass 3 is in the works, these lean, green leathers could give the comedy flick the much needed box office boost it needs.
2. Let's talk about taking five
Bursting bladders. Thigh-high leathers. A tinkle disaster waiting to happen.
3. Festival chic, or...
Get the crowd funding going on Kickstarter.com, stat.
4. Styling for one percent-ers
This naked mid-driff look is the quickest way to get booted out of an establishment. Gigi Hadids and Kendall Jenners not included.
5. Bring on the wrath of Gordon Ramsay
Forget health and safety codes, Vetements' top stitch apron would fuel the fire on reality TV show, Kitchen Nightmares.
