It bloody works

I can’t believe it… It works. Catwalks, fashion shows, advertisement campaigns and all that crap I have never considered indeed works. What am I talking about? Fashionable vs practical.
With some exceptions (military, sport or work clothes) fashion is not supposed to be practical. Some of the most often used fashion items can be proclaimed as dangerous.

Latex and the real life – part 2

See part 1 here.

Looks like a good match :-)



Now I’m puzzled…

What is she wearing? Lycra? Latex?
latex or lycra shorts

Helmut Lang collection. Spring 2003. Latex is mentioned in the review, but I’m still not convinced.

norma_kamali_leggings3 Lycra leggings €134.00

(definitely can be bought here cheaper, though)

Black lycra leggings. Norma Kamali for Everlast leggings has an elasticated waistband and horizontal vents across heel. 96% polyester, 4% spandex. Hand wash.

Ha-ha… Now I doubt that Alessandra Ambrossio was caught wearing latex. And the shine on her legs looks very suspicious… No, I’m not saying that the leggings are bad, quite the contrary, but they are not made out of latex.
