Crimes of New York Fashion Week, S/S 09 – crotch flowers at Alexandre Herchovitch

Crotch_shot

As New York Fashion Week draws to a close, it’s time to look towards London – but not before taking a quick look back at the Crimes of New York, S/S 09. Chief of these had to Alexandre Herchovitch and his, um, "interesting" crotch flowers. We’re sure there’s a very deep and meaningful reason why these now exist in the world, but we’re equally sure anyone caught wearing them will be headed straight to the cells, so although we found NY Fashion Week to be a relatively crime-free affair this time round, we thought they deserved a special mention…

    Oh. My. God.
    That is one of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen.
    I have this theory that big designers design ridiculous clothes on purpose just so they can laugh hysterically at everyone who wears them. But this… this is just crossing the line. Then again, anyone who would go out in public wearing, um, floral pubic hair probably deserves to be locked up.

    Anna, I’d love to design fashion for this very reason myself, so maybe you’re right!
    As for the garment… that’s just hideous. Hilariously hideous.

    Not only does this have a vulgar flowering bush on the OUTSIDE of her clothing, but there are bloomers atop regular-fitted pants!!!! You see this??!!!!!!!
    (I rushed to comment before reading, for oh – my eyes!!!)
    I can’t believe this. It MUST be a joke. BAN them from Fashion Week! (Or send them to style prison!)

    Those things would be fugly without the flower; with the flower they become an atrocity against aesthetics.
