In the wake of Jack Black's Nacho Libre, the fashion of Mexican Wrestling may start to hit headline news. On that note, famed photographer Malcolm Venville has launched Lucha Loco, a book of 120 photographs from the Mexican sport second only to Football. The sport, Lucha Loco literally translates to, 'free fighting'. Dig it!

This reminds me of the Terror Fashion we profiled in January.

Implications - Who knew that Mexican wrestling could result in such amazing fashion styles. It is also likely that these styles could start hitting the runway in the coming months in a slightly altered form. Would that be completely wrong? Considering the crazy fashion that's come before, there's guaranteed to be some decent inspiration stemming from these Lucha Loco portraits.
