Some say fashion is a type of armour against the world, but I don't think that those people had this in mind. The lovely Nicola sent us this crazy concept ensemble by artist Tetsuya Noguchi paying homage to the classic brand Chanel. For some reason, I have this image in my head of that scene from Glee, when the football team does the routine from the Single Ladies music video to distract the opposition. How many samurais would stop in their tracks at the sight of this haute-couture outfit? Bear in mind that lots of samurai were apparently of the homosexual persuasion, and so it's more than likely they would worship at the altar of Chanel. Those bitchin' Maison Michel-esque bunny ears are pretty darn attention-grabbing as well -- paired with a runway strut a la Miss J Alexander, and the enemy doesn't have a chance.
