Kjeld Duits: @Sarah: It’s body paint that’s made to look like a tattoo.
Sarah: I love all of the pieces in this! I would wear a lot of them :) I especially love the designs on the model’s necks, are they tattoos? I noticed that the designers have them too.
Kjeld Duits: @Sierra: They ARE!

petitesam: @Leah B. I thought Daft Punk originally, too! :D I love that there isn’t really a gender to the clothing, and the helmets reinforce the idea. I also like the tribal aspects, ponchos, fringe, etc. Nifty!
Kjeld Duits: @Leah B.: I just played some of his music to imagine how you experienced these photos. Quite interesting. The actual music played during the show was hard rock.
Leah B.: For some strange reason, I got Daft Punk stuck in my head while looking through this show. ;)

Kjeld Duits: @code_name_kohaku: “The problem with art and fashion is that it is highly opinionated.” True, that’s what makes the discussion so incredibly interesting. You get to hear viewpoints that you may not have considered at all yourself. I really enjoyed the conversation on this page. Thanks to all who participated!
code_name_kohaku: The problem with art and fashion is that it is highly opinionated. I agree with the people who say that some of these clothes worn separately would look amazing. A lot of it is actually kind of classical mixed with odd color/pattern style. I for one, really like the cross-body bags some of the models are carrying. This series of photos reminds me of a dreamy tie-dye cotton candy party (that might partly be due to the blue lipstick, though..you are all right it is distracting!). Anyway, great photos!
Nadine Kenific: @9891rjv: no offense to Mel but I agree these clothes are amazing and if I owned them I would wear them to the grocery store or out for coffee. I don’t care what people think if I like it I will wear it somewhere. I would make up an excuse.

Kjeld Duits: @Leah B.: Fashion is really a state of mind, so it doesn’t matter too much where you are. But it doesn’t hurt to be in a place where you are surrounded by inspiration. Hope you can make it to Japan one day!
Leah B.: Kjeld: Brilliant idea. I would definitely read that interview voraciously, and probably learn a lot from it. I don’t pretend to be a seasoned fashion authority; I’m still relatively new to the scene. I have always been particular about my own personal style, but only made the connection that I’m a fashion-nerd this year. I want to learn as much as I can. Of course, Indianapolis isn’t really known to be a fashion Mecca. But that’s not gonna stop me.
Kjeld Duits: @Lactose Intoler-Art: I have covered Mercibeaucoup in the past, but they weren’t part of the JFW this time and unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to ferret out all the hidden shows. We got a few of them like the Banal Chic Bizarre show. I will see if I can get more organized before the next season. That strip of brown is cool. I always love small subtle accents like this; especially when they are done this well.
