Yesterday I posted about the extraordinary increase in the level of extremity of design required to get our attention and keep it. What all too often happens when such levels of sartorial shouting are reached, is that hilarity can ensue. Sometimes of course, the designer has their tongue planted far into their cheek on purpose. Other times, a designer has taken their concept so to heart, and their desire to push the envelope is so grimly held, that they fail to see the fact that their work has tumbled over into humor.
Don't get me wrong here, wit, humor, and satire are all legitimate parts of the dialog in progress. In fact I would say they are essential, lest we take ourselves entirely too seriously.
Of course these three outfits are deliberately funny, and actually I think they're rather sweet. They are made entirely of balloons. The squeaking on the runway must have been hilarious.
So, would be designers, be very careful how invested you get in your concept. You may still make someone's day, but for the wrong reasons.
