Ankle phone-holder

From French fashion house Maison Margiela.

If you have the tolerance for it, you can check out the video of their runway show in which a few of the models are wearing the ankle phone-holder. Though the phone holder may be the least weird part of the show. I think at least one of the models was wrapped in fiberglass insulation (see picture below). Others seemed to be wrapped in carpets.

I think that's cellulose insulation. Much more eco-friendly, and less itchy.

It looks like the model's ankle is being attacked by that little Decepticon.
Some of the runway girls seem to have their heads wrapped in plastic, perhaps attempting suicide from the shame. They would be better accepted if they showed at Home Depot.

Those phone holders are just training devices for when they'll have to wear ankle monitors.

I used to look to high-concept fashion for ideas on how non-humans might dress (I write sf/f). I basically stopped doing that because it's really unlikely I'll ever create a race so addlepated that they'd wear that stuff.

That insulation I've known as "rock wool" although it is made of neither rock nor wool.

That camera holder is obviously for exhibitionists as it probably allows for upskirt selfies to be taken.

I like the shoes at 0:56. Too bad there are no horns to go with them. Some of these outfits restrict arm movement almost like straitjackets. If you but one of these, you probably need a straitjacket.

I like their ecological approach to fashion. They really strut these old Salvation Army clothes, plastic flower bouquet wrappings, duct tape, old tin foil and blankets. Also, hobos could reproduce most of these looks, so it's affordable fashion too!

KDP: the original rock wool actually is made of spun molten rock. These days it often seems to be ceramics or glass or other byproducts of smelting, but it's still spun minerals.
Still not wool, though. I suppose a nearly accurate name would be "rock felt".
