The right calf by Malcolm Pate

To close this second week of Fashion Body programming, filmmaker, photographer and artist Malcolm Pate captures the right calf - inspired, he said, by the floral tributes left at the roadside after traffic accidents. Strapping a length of Burberry Prorsum barbed-wire around the leg and intertwining it with delicate blooms, Pate weaves a dark but surprisingly delicate vision from one of fashion's most aggressive accessories of late.

    Inventive use of an accessory!! Is that one of the necklaces from last fall? Reminds me a bit of a wartime memorial or combat film. Very poignant

    This REALLY makes me think mosquitos and I don't know why!!! I guess as the description says, mosquitos are "dark but surprisingly delicate" But why do I get such a strong sense of mosquitos?!
