The realism is striking, the rendering surreal.
Rapper Tommy Cash's outfit to attend the Y/project brand's fall-winter 2023-2024 ready-to-wear show did not go unnoticed on Tuesday at Paris Fashion Week.
Like an allegory of this intense but also tiring fashion weekend for its protagonists, the 31-year-old Estonian musician arrived as if he had not gotten up.
Rolled up in a fluffy white duvet, haloed at the back of bed sheets and pillows, his hair stuck to them, it looked as if he had taken his whole bed with him.
And the artist also ironizes on his arrival, assailing to the spectators: "Sorry, I didn't wake up".
During the parade, Tommy Cash continues his performance: he gives himself a beauty mask, puts cucumbers on his eyes, and pretends to sleep.
All in this amazing sleepy look that was actually not a Fashion Week premiere.
Nothing new under the fashion sun
Viktor & Rolf's fall ready-to-wear fashion show at Paris Fashion Week 2005.
At the Viktor & Rolf fashion show in the fall of 2005, the models marched, their hair glued to the pillows placed behind their heads, sometimes wearing a red fleece jacket like an eiderdown, sometimes a white silk dress.
This time, the show is not on the podium, but in the assembly, on the side of a recidivist troublemaker.
Indeed, Tommy Cash is a regular at Fashion Week happenings.
In October 2022, in the front row of the Loewe fashion show, he was knitting with concentration.
Earlier in June, he was spotted bare-chested lifting dumbbells at the Tommy Hilfiger fashion show.
Performances that sometimes steal the show from the parades themselves.
