  • Description

    THE AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR DESIGNER, RUBEN TORRES, YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) TOOK PARIS - ITS FASHIONS ANYWAY - INTO THE SPACE AGE. HE'S THROWN OUT FLAPPING JACKETS, SHIRT TAILS AND TIES AND DRESSED HIS MEN AND WOMEN FROM THE SKIN OUT IN HIS IDEA OF CLOTHING FOR 1980.

    TORRES, WHO HIMSELF HAS THROWN AWAY HIS LAST TIE, SAYS THAT MEN AND WOMEN BOTH ARE STILL DRESSED IN CLOTHES OF THE 19TH CENTURY WHEN THEY SHOULD BE AIMING TOWARDS THE 21ST CENTURY.

    HE SAYS MALE CLOTHING NOW IS NEITHER BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL NOR EVEN SAFE. THOSE WHO HAVE GONE FOR LEATHER JACKETS AND JEANS ARE THINKING THE RIGHT WAY.

    SHORT SKIRTS ARE OLD.... THEY DON'T MATTER, AS FAR AS HE'S CONCERNED. HE SAYS WOMEN SHOULD FEEL AND LOOK BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY, NATURAL AND ELEGANT; IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE THEIR HEMS ARE.

    SO IN PARIS YESTERDAY TORRES SHOWED MEN WITH CREW CUTS LOOKING LIKE ASTRONAUTS AND HIS WOMEN, TOO, WORE TIGHT LEATHER SUITS WITH SPARKLING BODICES, READY FOR A TRIP IN SPACE ....IN 1980.
