Weird & Unexpected Fashion Week Trends...

There were a few weird and unexpected standouts at the Fashion Week spring '08 shows in NYC. See the pics below for a small sampling...

Using female rappers as inspiration for your runway hairstyles (and Remy Ma's hairstyle, no less..) as seen at Toni Maticevski SS/08. Why?

Turbans were paired with everything from swimwear to summery dresses to eveningwear (scenes from Milly by Michelle Smith and Pamela Roland SS/08). Why? What's next? Baseball caps paired with wedding gowns? The two just doesn't go together IMO.

Infant style "onesies" for adults as seen at Betsey Johnson's SS/08 show. Why? And where would you wear them?

And lastly, but certainly not the least weird and unexpected trend from Fashion Week, is Phillip Lim with those Hammer Pants. HAMMER PANTS. From Phillip Lim, who won the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear at this years CFDA Awards. What is there to even say about this unexpected trend? I'm sorry ya'll, but I can't touch this.
