Rootstein’s ‘Young & Restless’ Mannequin Line Launch Party

Submitted by on Monday, 21 June 2010No Comment

Last week in NYC, the iconic British mannequin company Rootstein finally launched their controversial new line of skinny male mannys that have been causing a little ruckus amongst girth lovers. Recently, New York Magazine did a stitch up piece about the stiffs, alluding that their 27″ waist and 35″ chest 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 60’s, 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.
