Theodore Dalrymple writes something I've long thought:
At least as interesting, sociologically, as the clothes themselves were the models who wore them. I don’t know whether the company follows fashion or makes it, or whether there is some dialectical relationship between the two, but the models were distinctly freakish, the women half-starved and the men half–both starved and androgynous.
More than by anything else, however, I was struck by their facial expression. It was surly, sulky, sullen, sour, and morose.
