The most recent chunk of fun to enter your Instagram feed is the big-jacket meme.
Recently, for instance, spruce street fashion star Luka Sabbat was transformed into a jacket-wearing Stay Puft Marshmallow Man by @itsmaysmemes. The baffling record resized Sabbat’s jackets to be hilariously ginormous: A downy piece was turned into a wooly mammoth– like topper, a standard slicked blue puffer turned into the size of a parked car in the background, and a custom fitted coat with Quasimodo-style shoulders reduced Sabbat’s handsome face to a tiny pinhead.
The account’s philosophy, explained in its profile as “Giant jackets is the new wave,” might be valid: Sabbat in a Franken-coat isn’t the main absurdist Insta-go up against style presently circling. A couple of days back, two pictures of a dopey Joey Tribbiani of Friends made a more-will be more appearance with a superimposed Balenciaga logo two unique occasions by the adorable substance making account @siduations, and not long after by @hey_reilly. (Extraordinary personalities think alike!) The scene originated from the scene ““The One Where No One’s Ready,” in which Joey wears the majority of Chandler’s clothes, and asks, while suffocating in cotton: “Could I be wearing any more clothes?”
In case we’re talking Balenciaga, truly, perhaps Joey could be wearing more garments—and possibly Sabbat could be wearing greater coats. For Fall 2018, there were a lot of models strolling in wingspan-style, so-thick-it’s-difficult to-move-one’s-arms looks. Also, the label has been producing some layered getups and some extremely monstrous coats in the course of the last couple of seasons: One moment that emerges is the opening look from the Spring 2017 menswear collection, which was compared to the engulfing, skull-shrinking suit worn by Talking Heads’ David Byrne in the ’80s.
So will we seeing stylish dudes in bigger jackets on the street soon? Funny heaps of more clothes? Let’s see what Instagram’s finest mischief-makers come up with next.
