On Monday, the models walking the runway in the 2013 menswear collection show were seen carrying “automatic weapons, wearing balaclavas, and sporting red-inked words such as 'ONLY KILL FOR LOVE' on their topless torsos,” according to the Daily Mail.
The show also featured a sandbag-paved runway and models wearing body tattoos, war paint and specific slogans like 'LIFE'S A GAME AND IT'S NOT FAIR'.

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed.
