The Hottest Trend At London Fashion Week? Er, Slipknot

By Luke Lewis

Posted on 24 Sep 09


Given that most people in the NME office barely change their clothes, let along buy any new ones, I can't say any of us have been following London Fashion Week closely.

Even so, flicking through the papers this morning my eye was caught by this dapper creation, by a designer/sectionable lunatic calling himself Jaiden rVa James - presumably the Jonattan Yeah? of the fashion world:

Obviously I've already ordered mine: it's ideal lounging-round-the-house gear. But haven't we seen this look before?

That's right - it's a blatant rip-off of Slipknot's Craig Jones, who pioneered the whole Zippy-meets-'Hellraiser' look over a decade ago.

Let's hope this is the start of a new trend in the fashion world for heavy metal-influenced designs. I for one would love to see Paul Smith bring out a morning suit incorporating the circulaw saw codpiece worn by W.A.S.P.'s Blackie Lawless.
