My MANy Bags Trendspotting #17


'Real Men Do Wear Tights'...And PINK ones for that matter...

Robin Hood should be proud. Marc Jacobs has done it again. Not only is wearing a skirt not enough for him, he is sprucing up his androgenous look with PINK graffiti tights!

I applaud him again for challenging conventions.:-) But when you are the world's most forward and famous fashion designer...who dare say you are wrong?:-)

Nice pink, BTW!

Well, it's flash dance all over again..so go for it, if you think you can pull it off:-) And the tights under shorts look is in this season!

Only Marc can pull it off. The rest of us will just look silly...

Marc looks silly as well.

And that's being totally generous.

Truth be told, he can't pull it off; no one can. People don't laugh at him too hard only because he is at some fashion event (presumably the launch of the Sprouse line judging by the backdrop) where he can get his picture taken. No one in their right mind would ever wear this outrageous getup except a drag queen in the West Village or a fashion designer who is trying to make a statement.

Kevin and myMANybags said...
