Because War is So Effing Trendy
Did anyone catch this charming little bit of fashion news?
MILAN (Reuters) - Italian designer team Dolce & Gabbana took a military theme to kit out men next summer, ranging from fatigues with tiny lights that glowed in the dark to camouflage patterned swim trunks. ADVERTISEMENT
On the first day of Milan’s spring/summer 2008 menswear collections on Saturday, Dolce & Gabbana’s signature line show was colored in army-inspired khakis, navy, black and white.Models had tattoos and military-style haircuts, and wore baseball caps or square-crowned peaked soldiers’ hats.
Do you know what would be fun and cutting edge? In the middle of a bloody war, with people every day turning up decapitated or coming home injured and/or traumatized to a system that couldn’t care less about them?
Let’s dress up like soldiers! Only cooler! And less dead!
War is so great, isn’t it? Where’s Cynthia Enloe when you need her?
