ROOTSTEIN’S ‘YOUNG & RESTLESS’ MANNEQUIN LINE LAUNCH

young-restless1Last week in NYC, the iconic British mannequin company Rootstein finally launched its controversial new line of skinny male mannys that have been causing a little ruckus among girth lovers.Recently,
New York Magazine did a stitch-up piece about the stiffs, alluding that their 27-inch waists and 35-inch chests are too tiny and could indirectly support the current rise in male eating disorders,fashionably known as manorexia. The new androgynous collection Homme Nouveau is just the latest in a long history of homages by the innovative retailer to slender catwalkers, which has included ladies like Twiggy in the ’60s, Pat Cleveland, Yasmin Lebon, and Jodie Kid. Rootstein says, “Mr Kevin Arpino (creative director of Rootstein) was inspired by the legions of fashion forward men and models who wear the clothing and grace the runways of Dior, Rick Owens, and Raf Simons.” And with that kind of inspiration on display, out came New York’s finest to a packed, steamy showroom, including legendary model Pat Cleveland and daughter Anna Cleveland (who took turns posing with Anna’s own doll), Dawn Leak, hot stuff fashion design duo Phillipe and David Blond, New York Fashion Week front-row dandy Patrick McDonald, Roger and Mao Padilha, stylist Geraldine Laiz, Malik So Chic, Kenny Kenny, Bec Stupak, and David Bowie’s personal photog Leee Black Childers.
