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'.
