Yea or Nay: Balmain Jacket
Come. The fuck. ON. We can accept that certain best-forgotten trends are always going to get recycled eventually, but THIS? There is no way to look at this jacket without thinking of a pre-pedophile-charges Michael Jackson showing up at an awards ceremony with either Macauley Culkin or Emmanuel Lewis on one arm and professional beard Brooke Shields on the other. It’s not even about the relative merits of the jacket; it’s about the fact that it is solely derivative of one (largely fallen and discredited) celebrity of years past. It’s way too soon for this trend to be resurrected. Anyone over the age of 15 looks at that and thinks of the De-nosed One.
