Yes, Yes, We Would Wear It.

Kermit coat by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, “ready-to-wear” outfit by Lie Sang Bong. Below: Pepi’s-inspired hair action by fashion students from the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana.

NBC has pulled together a lovely gallery consisting of 100 crisp, large-sized images from various recent fashion shows, titled: “Would You Wear It?” I love finding outlandish new designs, but quickly tire of sifting through hundreds of dull runway photos on places like in order to find them. So these kind of galleries – which usually have names like “Looks You Won’t Be Caught Dead In” – are extremely helpful. All the images in this post are from the NBC gallery except for the muppet one – that I found here. I also enjoyed NBC’s crystal-clear Gaultier and McQueen galleries. I’d seen photos of both these collections before, but the photography here is the best. The makeup in the McQueen collection is terrifying!

Uber-hot mask by Lydia Delgado. Imagine wearing that with these shoes! And nothing else.

    That Lie Sang Bong piece is marvellous, very intricate and dynamic.

  4. David Forbes Says:

    Yes. Yes, I would absolutely wear a man-sized version of the Lie Sang Bong piece. Yum.

    My recently-signed alliance with the Frog People, however, makes the Kermit-skin garment a no-go.

    The Lydia Delgado mask is fascinating and gorgeous. I can imagine two people in particular upon whom that mask, those shoes –and nothing else– would be too hot to adequately express in words. And now my mind is wandering…

    Hmm, that Kermit Coat is suspiciously familiar to Kelly Heaton’s 2003 Live Pelt Exhibit:

    “Live Pelt, by Kelly Heaton, is a multimedia installation based on the transformation of 64 previously owned Tickle Me Elmo dolls, the popular consumer toy, into a woman’s coat. Fashioned from the toys’ pelts and electronics, the coat (entitled The Surrogate) provides full body vibration and is designed to be a substitute lover. ”

    I’ve always wanted to see McQueen stage Caucasian Chalk Circle!

    I’ve been in love with McQueen since I was five and he’s never let me down. Those black/orange striped tights with the matching shoes? I’ll be thinking about them for the rest of the week.

    That Lie Sang Bong outfit reminds me of the clockwork Nazi in Hellboy.

    And I mean that in a good way.

    Just found these- very wearable, but still of note I think:

  12. Tequila Says:

    The question should really be “Why are people not wearing this stuff yet?!”

    Must we wait for cyberpunk futures for people to wear this kinda stuff?

    I think I’d look pretty awesome with a kermit inspired outfit and a lobster on my head. Rainbow colored of course.

    “…Imagine wearing that with these shoes! And nothing else…”

    All right. I’ll imagine it.

    Damn I’d look good. :P

    This looks like something from Dexter.

    That Kermit coat is VERY Muffinhead.

    Also, add my hearts to the pile for McQueen! Too bad his target collection sucks :(

  15. BlueAnchorNatasha Says:

    Want. Those shoes….

  16. Vivacious G Says:

    Mmmm. Shoes. Sluuurp.

  17. Seth Says:

    Can we imagine someone else wearing that mask and those shoes? Cuz I’m just no damn good in heels…
