this instagram artist is using her body to distort our perceptions of beauty

Among its deepest darkest crevices you’ll find some curious creatures doing the most curious things all in the name of beauty. There’s this guy who kicked off the (perhaps least practical trend I’ve ever seen) for wearing slugs as eyebrows; this girl who likes to look as if she bleeds ink from her eyes, and then of course there are these guys who like to look as far removed from humankind as humanly possible. The latest in a long line of curios goes by the name of MLMA, which stands for Me Loves Me Alot — a Seoul-born rapper and visual artist using her body as a canvas to distort our expectations of beauty. Last year, she went viral for posting an image of herself with wavy brows, subsequently giving birth to a whole new beauty trend.

For his graduate collection at the London College of Fashion, menswear designer Harikrishnan has matched cropped tailored jackets with billowing latex trousers to create exaggerated silhouettes.

Harikrishnan designs inflatable latex trousers with "impossible" proportions

The super-wide inflatable trousers consist of up to 30 individual latex panels, which are either plain white or arranged in contrasting colour blocks of brick red and forest or mint green. Although they fit snugly at the waist, they balloon out to double the width of the wearer around the thighs, before finally tapering in again towards the ankles. This look is achieved by pumping the trousers with air via a seven millimetre-wide inflation valve at the bottom. "I got the idea when I was playing with my dog and I started thinking about how exaggerated objects must look from such a low angle," explained the designer, who goes by the single name Harikrishnan.
