Patrick Mohr Spring/Summer 2011: Bald and ill is in


For the spring/summer 2011 collection, Patrick Mohr made his fashion show into something between the spoon bending kid in "The Matrix" and scary alien in a M Knight Shyamalan movie?! Why on earth would you make hot supermodels look like people who suffer from leukemia?

We get it, the “artistically creative” concept (or the rest of us calls it “WTF”) is to compensate the kind-of-dull orangey clothes. But unless someone fetish about terminally ill people, who would look at this runway collection and have the urge to buy these clothes?!

Sometimes I just don't get art. Like this piece by Max Ernist I saw at the National Art Gallery that consist of a dead stuffed horse lying down in the middle of an empty room, or the 1.8 million dollar painting called “Voice of Fire” which is just a red stripe down a blue canvas. Call me ill-educated but I definitely got more satisfaction watching this street performer down the street from the gallery shoving a 1.5 foot long balloon down his throat and I only had to pay him $5.

  1. LMAO... this collection looks a mess right a long with the models. They look like they have cancer or something. I don't get art either, like the weirdest stuff with be so hot to other people and I'm like.... ooook.

  2. omg - crazy faces! I'm so frightened by them I can't even look at the clothing. Not sure if that was the wisest move (as the clothing should always be the focus). lol, that's going to haunt me the rest of the day! ;)

  3. Uh, creepy. I couldn't focus on the clothes at all.

  4. I agree with you. I love art and am very open minded; but sometimes the value placed on something that I could make/paint/etc is outrageous. And trust me, you don't want me making your art.

    Yeah, the fact that Lindsey only get 90 days is ridiculous. I hope she likes state food.

  5. Wait, what? Those are women on the catwalk ? :)) Oh, God why can't they just come up with a better concept. Next thing you know they will make them look like lepricons

  6. Lol @ We get it, the “artistically creative” concept (or the rest of us calls it “WTF”) is to compensate the kind-of-dull orangey clothes.

    This also looks like Paul collab'ed with Eddie Murphy on the project, SMH. I guess WE just need to think outside the bun lol. Please. This is more unsettling to watch than looking at Jimmy Kimmel tongue kiss Silvertone (or whatever his 3 time EXES name is) -ugh'd. All I can say ending these shenigians is :::clears throat::: Moooooooseesssss.

  7. OMG, I would understand if those models walking on the runway with just bald heads, but with beard? it's so weird! I agree with you, who will buy that line? LOL.

  8. yes i agree with you on WTF! lol.
    sometimes i don't get it and i really don't need to get it.

    my bf is an artist and he paints random stuff. i asked him wtf is this & he says its just random stuff and has no meaning...lol. so i guess take it as it is.

  9. wow,,, this is really really crazy...
    But I guess they focus on the clothes? and the models are just accessories?

    Strange... BUT definitely worth attracting the media!!

  10. TRAINWRECK. Someone tell this Patrick dude that there's a fine line between art and plain rubbish!!

  11. omg, that just freaked me out a little!! A LOT x.x

  12. Eek! this is creepy but I guess the designer felt his clothes needed publicity whether good or bad.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Eeek! kinda scares me lol but to each his own!

  14. Ugh!!! That's pointless. I'm all about the art, but this not only detracts from the models, but from the clothes too! So isn't highlighting the clothes the point of a fashion show? And $5 for your local street performer?? That's a pretty inflated rate. Our NYC performers gets $1, if they're lucky :o/

  15. "WTF" is my reaction too, but I want to be pretentious, so I'll pretend there is something there to actually get and I'll pretend I get it. "Oh, this is such a bold move for Patrick. He has developed into a designer who leads rather than follows. The message of the collection is just so striking." Hahaha!

    I hope there is no such thing as a fetish for terminally ill people. I have nothing against fetishes, but that would just be toooo much. You just made that up as a joke, right???

  16. Yukkk! The styling of the models makes me wanna throw up. I guess I am not too artsy!

  18. OMG, where do you find this stuff?! I am seriously dying laughing. I just grabbed my bf to make him read this post and he is blown away that any human would possibly find that stuff attractive. I love it, ha.

  22. i think the clothes design is alright, just don't let me see anything above the models' neck. not a fan of man-ish facial hair

  23. Such a strange yet unique idea!

  24. OMG, that scared me big time! So much for avante garde!

  25. Oh my god that fashion show is scary! how did u guys reacted when the first model show on runway?:P Don't worry I too can't understand art. Paintings in particular. Sometimes people would say "this painting is amazing" while when you look at it its plainly sketches! How can they possibly cost a millions when not everyone can understand what it shows? just wondering...

    Hey i love your blogs big time!! :) hope your good!

  33. ROFL. It's either they were showing Jesus how the bearded look should really be done, or they just ran out of ideas.

    But I'm sorry - I'm an idiot - but I have to ask this; were those people male or female? I have a problem with this a lot, as males are now prone to look like females as they think long bangs/hair will make them as popular as Justin Beiber D:

  34. This is just weird!! Basically, the stick skinny models we usually see on the runway are there to try to get us, the consumers, to buy the clothing. This however is a major turnoff -I don't see why anyone would buy his clothing now!

    I really don't mean to sound harsh as I know designers work ridiculously hard when putting a show together -but this was a waste of time and money. The models were the opposite of sexy and intriguing and the clothing was dull -we've seen these designs before.. some of them were probably first "invented" thousands of years ago! What's up with the robes??

  35. I just don't like this at all ! I wonder who will buy this collection . The designer should make the models prettier so everyone will buy the clothes , not like this . Hmm . So weird .

  36. What.... the...... fuuuuuu......

  37. SUPER FIERCE RUNWAY SHOW!!
    love this post so much!
    love,vdcouture

  38. Oh no, this is so so awful, I don't even know where to begin. I think being too artsy and conceptual is such a turn-off. The designer is probably trying too hard to provoke a reaction, but at the end of the day, they're just showing clothes, so please put them on some pretty models please.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh God these pictures look down right scary. I can't even focus on the clothes - the faces just look terrible (but I know the clothes in this collection weren't anything to look at).
    I know, people who gawk and "oooo and awwww" at everything artsy need to get a good grip on themselves. Seriously. Too many of those people. They need to read that lovely classic book called The Emperor's New Clothes ;)
