Dreams/Nightmares Become Reality

Last night I had the strangest dream, I was front row at a fashion show and men in bearded skull caps came out and were dancing in nothing but manties.
 
What's that you say....this wasn't a dream? 
Frankie Morello actually opened his fall 2011menswear show with nearly naked men in faux beards and manties doing a little ballet number (note the super cute/manly ballet slippers).
Throughout the show these men were tumbling into boxes, hiding in boxes, and standing on boxes.
Pretty much anything that could be done with a box they were doing. 
  Watch out behind you!!! Mantie man is about to pounce!  

It looked more like an ill choreographed gymboree session than a fashion show.  

 
After watching the show, I was slightly horrified and a tad amused.
My only question is what is the ungodly price of humiliation these models/dancers were paid?

Oh my, what a weird way to start a fashion show, but i bet it really made the audience want to know what else was going to be in the fashion show! xx

thank you FRANKIE!!! I agree it is completely FRIGHTENING and bizarre.....

deppa said...

I've been thinking something very similar with this idea (No NOO! the naked-dancers-models)
But what is the limit between "art" and madness? sometimes some people justify them through art. And thanksfully we are not obligated to understand them.

:)

See you!

Crazy strange!

Melina said...

Wow, how strange! I feel like it takes away from the actual show a bit, your eye immediately goes to the almost naked man.

.but i like it.

I guess he was hoping the manties and boxes would distract from some of the woolen jumpers and shopping bags...

C'EST DEMODE said...

@Anonymous I think you finally unraveled the mystery behind the men in manties. Thank You.

Marissa said...

Oh, god. How creepy! Way to take the focus OFF the clothes.

Heart Charlie said...

How amazing! This is so strange/interesting ;) I wonder if they were humiliated or if they thought they were creating art?

Claudia Paola. said...

Hahaha.. ohhhh dear- I think that whereas perhaps the idea was to entertain the audience, I would honestly find myself distracted from the clothes being exhibited by the mantie men (lolol)! I love how you presented this- at one point, I seriously thought you were having this dream, and when I saw the picture, I was like, "How in the world did she find a picture to match her dream?!" ;P

Thank you so much!! I'm so pleased you like my blog! :D

HAHAHA. I laughed. Out loud. A lot. I don't know whether I should like it or not.Usually, the thought of nearly nude men means the very opposite of dislike, but under the context, it's a little disturbing when ballet is thrown into it. So funny!

loved this show a lot

Sabina said...

Yowza that's disturbing. I only hope those beards are enough to hide those poor guys' identities--and shame.
