Kim Jong Il, Fashion Trendsetter!

From the Agence France-Presse comes news of the latest fashion trend.

The trademark suit sported by North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il is now in fashion worldwide thanks to his greatness, Pyongyang’s official website said Wednesday.Like Evel Knievel, Kim Jong Il favors the jump suit. A touch of color would be good, no?

Uriminzokkiri, quoting an article in communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun, said the modest-looking suits have gripped people’s imagination and become a global vogue.

“The reason is that the august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people’s mind in the world,” it said.

“To sum it up, that is because his image as a great man is so outstanding.”

The article quoted an unidentified French fashion expert as saying world fashion follows Kim Jong-Il’s style.

“Kim Jong-Il mode which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide is something unprecedented in the world’s history,” the stylist was quoted as saying.

The suits consist of an overall-style zipped-up tunic and matching trousers, usually in khaki or blueish-grey.

To which the Manolo replies, do not be ridiculous, Kim Jong Il, the fashion leader. It is, as they say, to laugh.

“But, Manolo,” you are perhaps saying, “do you not remember that Preen RTW show from last year?”

P.S. This is not the first time the Manolo has considered the fashion crimes of Kim Jong Il.

    I’ve been thinking for a while that it was only a matter of time before the Mao suit came back. I suppose this is an intermediate step.

    If only I had the body for it! But I’m too tall and non-megelomaniacal for it too look that good on me.
