The closing word for today is MEN, darlings. And it’s a word that Dirk Bikkembergs clearly loves. Like all of his collections, this one offers a bright, sexy, cartoonish version of masculinity; skin tight (and skin-baring) clothes in either stark blacks and whites or brilliant springtime colors, all in service to one specific silhouette, the broad-shouldered, small-waisted, thunder-thighed, gym-toned male one. You’ll never see a waif-ish man-boy sullenly clomping his way down a Dirk Bikkembergs runway. It’s square-jawed and ripped all the way and who doesn’t like a little of that in the man-candy bowl every now and then? It’s superhero fashion and it’s sexy, thightastic fun.
