After seeing many nasty runway falls recently, Vivienne Westwood made sure her models are well protected by using knee pads in her redneck-chic infused men’s fall 2009 Milan runway.
While it’s not groundbreaking or unusual to use them with sporty and active lifestyle wear, Westwood has paired the knee pads with couture formal and evening wear.
So will we see fashinistos wearing knee pads on top of their $2,000 Dolce & Gabbana or Armani suits? I say go for it. Better be safe than sorry!
