In some of the most eye-roll-inducing news to come out of Milan's fashion week, Vivienne Westwood's fall 2010 menswear collection celebrates "homeless chic" inspired by "the roving vagrant whose daily get-up is a battle gear." For the show, Westwood carpeted the runway with cardboard boxes and discolored her models' hair to get that just-woke-up-from-a-subway-bench look. Models on the runway carried bedrolls, pushed shopping carts and one "emerged from his cardboard box with a sleeping bag, slung it around his neck, and quickly walked away."
