Black ballgowns, towering platform shoes, fishnet stockings and multiple pleats trousers were just some of the looks British designers featured in their Spring 2018 collections on the runways last week in London.
But it should be noted: this was Menswear Fashion Week.
It might be hard to accept these looks for blokes are from the same nation that gave the world elegant bespoke suits of Saville Row, the super suave and hyper-masculine style of James Bond, the timeless Burberry trench and the enduring appeal of aristocratic tweedy suits.
But British fashion have also given us punk, new wave and the street style influence of the 1960s Youthquake movement, and continues to be fashion disrupters today.
London Fashion Week has always been the wonderfully wild roller-coaster ride of wacky, cutting edge and inexplicable outfits. The world's fashion press and retailers often look to London as an incubator of ideas. As far fetched as they might be, it's inevitable some of it gets watered down and adapted for the masses.
But then again, the world might not be quite ready for some of the ideas these designers are proposing for men.
