As if Dolce & Gabbana designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana didn’t have enough to worry about, what with being sentenced to jail time for tax evasion last week, a streaker crashed their Spring 2014 menswear show over the weekend.
The streaker (who has yet to be identified but we must say is in very good shape) stripped down to his little red sneakers and managed to run most of the length of the runway, both fists raised triumphantly in the air, before security nabbed him.
GQ associate fashion editor Matt Sebra described it thusly:
“While the designers come out for their bow and turn to walk backstage, from down the other end of the runway a guy rips off his clothes. (Not sure if it was breakaway suit or what.) Full freeball. Says nothing anyone can understand and just kind of zig zags up the runway before the first security guard tries to cut him off. Maneuvers a little but turns back and that’s when four guards create a perimeter to block his junk and he’s taken away. Fashion community says ‘huh.’”
In the below video, you can see that the “fashion community” of menswear editors and buyers seem pretty blasé about the whole thing, getting up to leave following the show as if nothing had happened. Let’s be honest, most of these guys probably see their fair share of naked models. But we kinda loved it. And it looks like the streaker had a great time.
Perhaps it was even a welcome distraction for Dolce and Gabbana. When the Telegraph’s Luke Leitch asked the designers about their guilty sentence before the show, they were in no mood to talk about it.
“We feel shocked about what’s happened,” Gabbana said. “But we are relaxed too because we know that we are innocent. We resist, and I feel strong. But today isn’t the time to talk about that: we have a show.”
