RUNWAY REPORT.....Fall 2014 Paris Menswear Fashion Week, Walter Van Beirendonck Fall 2014 Pics + Runway Video




 The Middle Finger: Walter Van Bierendonck Fall 2014--Paris Menswear Fashion Week Fall 2014






  Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck



From NYMag.com: "When Karl Lagerfeld's Pre-Fall 2014 Collection
featured models wearing Native American-inspired headdresses, it
certainly raised some eyebrows and some ire, but there was also a sense
that because it was Karl, it was luxury fashion, and not as offensive as when Urban Outfitters or Karlie Kloss  featured similar headgear. So Karl remained pretty much unscathed. Now Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck is here to remind us all that the headdress thing was a big faux pas.
For his latest menswear collection, he sent a model down the runway
wearing a cartoonishly large feathered headpiece adorned with a middle
finger and the words STOP RACISM scrawled across it. Just call it the runway version of a subtweet. We get you loud and clear, Walter, but will everyone else?"
