How Appropriate

A California fashion designer launched his fall/winter 2010 line today. I guess the economy really does influence design:

American designer Rick Owens continued to plumb the depths of the dark side Friday, with a fall-winter 2010-2011 menswear collection of gender-bending, space age-y designs ready for the apocalypse. …

Overall, the collection, with its asymmetrical hemlines and great floppy flaps of fabric, looked like the kind of wardrobe the father and son in Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic fable “The Road” would have fashioned out of found detritus.

If I were living in California, I suppose the apocalypse would be an apt design inspiration. Might as well be ahead of the pack, right?

    Wow. That model looks like a zombie, already.

    Remember! Always shoot them in the head!
