 Chanel Ready to Wear Fall 2010: Plushie Luv!!

It’s funny because today earlier I was posting about a three-year-old Married to the Mob video and how MOB designer Leah McSweeney was an early appreciator of the wonders of plushies. I wonder if when Karl did this collection he was aware of the whole stuffed animal sex fetish thing. I’m thinking he had to be. I have to say when you stumble upon the world of plushophiles, it is really fascinating and inspiring. Just read the following quotes from a well-known Vanity Fair article on furry fandom and see if it doesn’t make you smile: “We’re a group of people who like things having to do with animals and cartoons,” a man in a tiger suit tells a woman. “We’re furries.” Maybe after a year of more b.s. than he could imagine, Karl was looking to feel a little happy. Bless his creative heart if that is the case.

    German journalists say that this collection and the show were inspired by KNUT the icebear. Knut was pretty famous in Germany and the Berlin zoo made a lot of money out of his cuteness.
    Don’t know if that’s really the backround for Karl’s creation but anyway it’s a funny story.

    Kinda looks like wookies to me.
