Modelling is Hard: Kampe Menswear edition

strange outerwear for men

They had to balance on scary cubes. And they had to do it while wearing some of the most uncomfortable looking outerwear we’ve seen outside of a Margiela runway show. They did it for fashion, people. And they did it for YOU. Yes, these brave models wear the strange coats so you don’t have to. But perhaps you WANT to wear the strange coats? Well, the good news is that you can: these are by German label Kampe, and they’re not just concept pieces – they’re actually available to buy and wear over at Not Just a Label. Just be aware that you won’t get much change out of £1,000 – and for some of them, you’ll be needing much more than that.

Oh, and by the way: if you DO wear these, you don’t have to worry about The Fashion Police arresting you, because honestly, if we saw someone out in public in one of these, we’d be much more likely to just shake them by the hand, and give them a bite of our doughnut…

    The last picture in particular gives off the impression the model has been attacked by someone… or possibly tortured via inserting of long needles.

    On an unrelated note…I wonder what happened to the “dress of the day” feature? I always liked that. Or how to wear certain wacky items… (the ‘bloodbath’ jeans would be amusing to use)

    Of course nobody would wear that on the street but it’s really beautiful. It makes fashion a little bit like art, and sometimes that’s what it is. I would really like to watch a catwalk with clothes like these ones.

      I agree. I’d say that a lot of artistic fashion collections would look ridiculous on the street, but that doesn’t make them bad. I’d rather see badly-made (but wearable) pieces on here…
